Skeptics and Broomsticks is an online grimoire of sorts put together by a delightful group of SASS (Skeptic, Agnostic/Atheist, and Science-Seeking) witches. Shout out to r/SASSWitches, connecting a lot of us and helping us figure out we’re a real community.

We came together on a Discord server appropriately called Epistími Witches. Interested in an invite link? Contact us with your Discord username!

What does epistimi mean, you (and pretty much everyone else) might ask? Well, it’s Greek, and if you don’t feel like popping over to Wikipedia, here’s the gist:

Episteme (Ancient Greek: ἐπιστήμη, epistēmē, ‘science’ or ‘knowledge’; French: épistémè) is a philosophical term that refers to a principled system of understanding; scientific knowledge. The term comes from the Ancient-Greek verb epístamai (ἐπῐ́στᾰμαι), meaning ‘to know, to understand, to be acquainted with’.

This is a positive and supportive space – people of all identities are welcome to read and engage with us!
