Another Pagan Blog
 
Well, since I've started a regular session of podcast reviews with the CSULB Pagan Alliance, I figure I may as well post my review of the podcast I presented to my group this week.
I brought up Fire Lyte because because he has recently made some edits to his Project Pagan Enough, and the most recent episode was the first real introduction I had had to it. (Click the link on the front page to check it out) I heard it and thought that it was perfect to introduce to my Pagan Alliance. Now I do not feel I can make a real judgement on the show because so far I've only heard the 3 most recent episodes, and I'm currently listening to Episode 10 (I've listened to the shows up to that point).

Immediately the first reaction I have to the podcast is that Fire Lyte is NOT afraid to express his emotions. He is extremely outspoken, to the point of seeming a bit off-putting at times. This should not be seen as a reason not to listen to his podcast, seeing as he is a very educated and eloquent individual. I had listened to Inciting a Brewhaha (IaB) long before I listened to IaR (More on that podcast later), and through that I came to realize he was really quite humorous, educated, and a truly kind-hearted person...as long as he wasn't talking about morons.
IaR has several sections, Inciting a Newsworthy Riot, Inciting a Literary Riot, and Inciting a New Word Riot, among his regular sections where he discusses spiritual and specifically Pagan issues. Fire Lyte describes himself with the following words, "I would be the tree-hugging, left-wing, homosexual, dirt-worshipping poet your conservative parents warned you about." And that works perfectly. Be prepared for lots of shameless self-promotion and self-back-patting.

As with any text, podcast, or other media form, of any topic, I remind you to listen to Inciting a Riot with a grain of salt. That is, while he is an incredibly well-researched individual, he's also very sarcastic, and again, very outspoken. Do not get pissed off about something JUST BECAUSE Fire Lyte is. Or if he says to drop a baby in your cauldron and boil it, don't take him seriously. If you listen to Inciting a Riot, don't just listen to it with one ear, because if you get pissed off about something he says, you may not have heard it all, or he used some elaborate language that you didn't quite get. (Not calling you dumb, I'm calling HIM a word-o-phile).

Find Inciting a Riot at incitingariot.blogspot.com, where you can find his blog, a link to his show, and all other forms of internet media he participates in.

If you have any suggestions for this or future reviews, please feel free to comment. Until next time,
