I've complained before that if you search "Wicca" on YouTube you get a lot of rantings by morons and some cute slideshows set to Goddess chants. This video (and a bunch more like it that appear to have been added in the last few days) is a good use of YouTube. Lots of Wiccans and people interested in Wicca can't get to conferences, so the chance to, for example, learn from Starhawk, via YouTube, is wonderful. This series could be a bit better if the pictures corresponded more closely to the discussion rather than just showing landscapes. Bu it's a big improvement over lots of what's available.
