Tea Room Dialogues - Thomas O'Brien Vallor (Salem Witch Wiles)
We find Maryline Spicy and Thomas O’Brien Vallor in the Back Parlor of The Satanic Estate lounging in comfy velvet chairs, sipping on some chamomile and lavender.
During this episode of Tea Room Dialogues, we discover that, contrary to popular belief, witches and Satanists aren’t all that somber or sinister. This episode’s guest is Thomas O’Brien Vallor, a veteran tour guide of Salem, Massachusetts, and a regular performer at The Estate. Thomas is known for him very vibrant personality and the Estate wouldn’t be the same without him.
The conversation starts with a graceful note of humility as he tells us about how he earned his moniker: Salem Witch Wiles.
Our favorite Satanic tour guide takes us down memory lane we go from a studious childhood to becoming a historian, a witch and a Satanist.
We get to know how he reconciles being both the Satanist and the Witch in his practice. We learn about Thomas and his rituals, his vision, and his version of both cultures.
As a historian, of course, Thomas teaches us a bit of the shared past of satanists and witches. He touches on the satanic panic and the evil stereotype of satanic witches.
With Hexennacht coming up, Thomas is planning his next performances at the Estate and this is where to get the tea in the Back Parlor at The Satanic Estate.
