39: WITCH LIFE: A look at Rosaleen Norton, AKA The Witch of Kings Cross, and the women of Aleister Crowley

Eavesdroppin’ hosts Geordie & Michelle get witchy this week with a look at the life of The Witch of Kings Cross, Rosaleen Norton, and the women of Aleister Crowley.

From the moment Rosaleen Norton was born, she believed she was a witch. In this episode, Michelle looks at her extraordinary life, from her early days living in a tent to her later days living in a stable, and her controversial life and artwork that led to her being dubbed a satan worshipping witch. Listen now to know more!

Geordie then delves into what happened to the women of the sex-magic lovin’ Beast of Hastings, Aleister Crowley. If you were lucky enough to eat a semen cake and become his lady, you were in for a rollercoaster life full of mysticism, mayhem and… sometimes tragedy. Was he The Wickedest Man in the World, or simply an orgy-loving naughty boy – you decide. So pop on your headphones, grab a brown lemonade and join Geordie & Michelle for all this and more, only on Eavesdroppin’ podcast. And remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
