Welcome to Discovering the Male Mysteries with Mel Mystery. This blog is a supplement to my podcast is for and about gay and bi pagan men. My podcasts are about what it is to be gay, what it is to be pagan, what it is to be men — sometimes as separate topics and sometimes all meshed together as one. I started this endeavor after seeing that there were few, if any, podcasts out there on this topic. The podcasts are informative, and present topics that challenge conventional thinking.


Latest Podcast Available Now — Episode 17A: The Conspiracy Show Part 1

My latest podcast episode is out.

The newest episode is all about conspiracy theories — why we love them, some of the more popular theories, and how right-wing conservatives are a hotbed of conspiracy theories during the Trump presidency.  We’ll also explore my friend David’s wild “conspiracy” theories about North Dakota.

This is part 1 of a two part episode.  Part 2 will be out in the near future.

You can listen to the newest episode on my website at: http://www.melmystery.com/

It is also available on Podbean and iTunes.


Had a great time at Coph Nia 2014!

I had a great time at Coph Nia (www.cophnia.org) this past week. Coph Nia is a spiritual gathering for gay and bisexual pagan men.  This year it was held at Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary / Farm in Artemas, Pennsylvania. I believe the plan is to have it there next year at about the same time in early August.

I met approximately 30 wonderful men at this event.  Each and every one of them was a pleasure to meet and each beautiful in his own way. There were workshops, including three that I hosted on gay and bi men’s rites of passage. 

I’m still pretty tired out from the event and trip home so I’m keeping this post short. My next podcast will be a review of the event – hopefully I’ll have that together within the next month or so if not sooner. Some of the seeds planted in my head from the event may also inspire future podcasts and blog posts.
