Promo - The New Order of Druids

N.O.D.

The New Order of Druids

This podcast is a way to get in touch with our members and also teach the public about the Celts, their mythology and their religion. In short, the New Order of Druids (or N.O.D. in short) was formed as a "Free Celtic Online Community for those who seek the Druid Path", but in the mean time, it has grown to become much more than that, also implementing an Online Druid College called "Grove of Dana", and founding local groves in the world.

 

Promo - Raise a Racket

Raise a Racket

Podcast novelists and their audience enjoy the intimacy of the medium, but still depend on brief blurbs and book covers to find a match. We make this connection simpler. Our goal is to provide an inclusive podcast for listeners on upcoming Podiobooks.com releases and give authors a voice in promoting their works to an interested audience.
