EP78 Wheel of Fortune

Feb 11, 2022

Wheel! Of! Fortune!!!

Who hasn't thought about taking a lucky spin and peering into their future? This week we talk all about traditional fortune-telling from the motherland (as told indirectly to us by our parents) and how it contrasts with Western styles of fortune-telling. We explore the different themes of traditional fortune telling, from arranging one's surroundings to become more auspicious to the usage of animals in luck-based divination. We also dive into why a fortune teller might be utilized and what purpose they serve other than to foretell your future. 

And finally, we reveal whether we would be interested in having our fortunes told. 

Spin that wheel!
