This is a recording of the episode that streamed live on Thursday 6 August 2020 at 3:00pm Pacific Time. The reading for this episode was Religious Symbols, the Original Cultural Appropriation by Candida Moss. In this episode Greg and Gregory talked about some factors that make cultural appropriation harmful and different from cultural mixing or adaptation, including: power dynamics, economic implications, and “depth” of connection. They specifically focus on religious appropriation and how it is different from religious syncretism. Some specific topics covered were:

  • Satanism and cultural subversion
  • Good and bad ways to “apologize” for appropriation
  • Is TST’s celebration of Lupercalia appropriative?
