Just a heads up .. I did a search and couldn't find a note of this so ..

Some of you will be aware that Peter Paddon used to publish podcasts on his Crooked Path website. Back in late 2009 he decided to finish them, however ..

He has started doing them again, it looks like he restarted them early this year. His podcats may not be everyone's cup of tea but they are generally interesting.

You can find them on Apple Itunes or directly from his Crooked Path website here

Thanks for this! I never knew about him before, but he does seem to have some interesting content.

Thanks Brian, am checking it out now.

I hadn't realized he'd started up again... I enjoyed the majority of his old ones and will def check out the new ones! Peter Paddon published podcasts picking pecks of pickled peppers....

Just a heads up .. I listened to one of the podcasts which was a recording of one of Peter's lectures last night on my mp3 player with headphones while relaxing .. the talk feels like you're in the room with the audience and quite a few times someone coughed which can startle you as you may end up wondering who the hell is in the house coughing LOL

A little bit of a jolt when you're relaxed listening to it LOL

His voice is so calming and soothing, it almost puts me to sleep. Will listen to him with a cup of coffee. :) Thanks so much for the link.
Even in tragedy, there is a certain kind of beauty, a certain kind of magic that exists outside of our pain.

Got loads of these on my iPhone, just started listening to them after finding my lost headphones.
He reminds me a bit of 'whispering' Bob Harris from the old grey whistle test - similar calming voice.

Sorry to rock the boat good people, as much as I like Paddon and his works I just do not "get" the podcasts they seem orchestrated and hollow, they did not move me at all. That you liked them is a bonus to you all, I hope you find what you are seeking i them.

I agree to an extent Elfyd. I just recently found him as well, interesting it should be posted so relatively soon after I found him!

While I think they are a bit orchestrated, I chalk that up to performance needs. I think that if you listen past the rehearsed voices and what sounds like him reading from a PowerPoint presentation, get down to the meaty content, that he is quite interesting, His ideas are thought-provoking at the very least!

I just take this perspective because I have been a performer in my life and, always wanting to put the best possible production out, sometimes things that are too rehearsed can come off that way - especially without the added depth of seeing body language or facial expressions.

I have to admit to being a fan of his too. I've listened to loads of different podcasts and his are certainly one of the best. They can sound a bit staged but thats the nature of the beast.

I have found some things to be of interest and other ehh.. Over all I think its a decent cast and worth a listen.. It is like PD Cagliastro, I keep what I want and leave the rest to the mundane..




Most witches don’t believe in gods. They know that the gods exist, of course. They even deal with them occasionally. But they don’t believe in them. They know them too well. It would be like believing in the postman.  T.P.

I gave these a listen and I did find them interesting, but I have trouble absorbing information audibly... so I found myself fading in and out, often losing myself in my own thoughts. It didn't help that his voice relaxes me to the point of zoning out.
But perhaps I could use these podcasts to reach a trance state :wacko:.

I attended a meetup group here in L.A. where he taught a class on energy work - I had never heard of him before but I've been listening to his podcasts ever since. They are extremely informative, but they can sometimes be a little sleep-inducing. I take notes and that seems to help me retain the info.
