This episode of Spotlights features Dr. Sarah Pike, professor in the Comparative Religion and Humanities Department at California State University, Chico. She discusses her ethnographic and historical research at the intersection of religion and ecology, particularly with regard to New Age and Neopagan communities. She also talks about her most recent book, For the Wild: Ritual and Commitment in Radical Eco-Activism. Since this is our winter solstice episode, she provides us with some reflections on this seasonal event. You can find more information about her work here.
