Magick Lab Academy to Host Lisa Derrick and Greg Bismarck

SOCRadio series Magick Lab Academy will host the dark progressivist Lisa Derrick and LA goth king Greg  Bismarck this Wednesday, March 22nd at 10 p.m. EST/ 7 p.m. PST.  Magick Lab is hosted by celebrity psychic Marie Bargas and writer Tony Sokol.

Lisa Derrick is a published author, journalist, film producer and sorceress who follows the Thelemic dictum, “Success is your proof.” She is the co-hostess of internet TV series Astrology Blitz with Mat Gleason, and the hostess of Sunday Night Babylon, both streaming on As an artist her work has sold in several Los Angeles galleries, and she is co-curating a major exhibition and the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, CA.


Greg Bismark is better known as Rat Bastard, but that belies his royal blood, he is the hereditary heir to the title of “Baron Von Bismarck.” The unsinkable Le Barone worked at Pan Pipes Magickal Marketplace while it was owned by The Craft star and The Sopranos castoff Fairuza Balk.

Baron Grigori Bismarck, a magician for more than four decades, is actually descended from Russian and Viennese nobility.

“That and $2 will get me a cup of coffee,” he says.

Greg received his first Tarot deck at age 11, and moved on to in-depth study of the I Ching, at 16. A past member of several Orders in the Western Tradition, Greg considers himself a “Vedic Thelemite.”

Although he has moved out of the public eye because he “got tired of having a bull’s eye on my back,” he continues his work meshing Western and Eastern Esoteric Traditions, merging Gurdjieff with Thelema and Vedanta, using modern scientific method.

Within the next decade, he intends, along with his yogini partner, to establish a Sanctuary, offering alternative healing and ashram, in Southern Mexico.

Magick Lab explores and explains paranormal practices the easy way: straight talk without the gobbledygook of religion or faith. The show focuses on the non-secular mechanics of manifestation, preservation and disintegration with an emphasis on fast and easy non-denominational spellwork. There is no “dark” or “white” magic in Magick Lab, but a rainbow range of practical rituals. For an hour and a half each week, Magick Lab makes magick accessible to everyone.

The show also hosts occult experts discussing their specialties. On their premiere show, “How Karma effects the Law of Attraction and Magick,” they hosted voodoo expert Caiza D. Delashadeo of Mysts & Shadows. Astrology expert James David Wade, the Pisces Prince, joined them to discuss Venus Retrograde for the second.

Los Angeles based psychic adviser Bargas began her broadcast career as a “Vampire Expert” on Entertainment Tonight. From 2012 – 2013 her life was optioned by an Emmy Award winning television Production Company for a reality TV show about real witches. The Retrograde Renegade made appearances on the Fine Living Network, the Love and Sex Report with Millionaire Matchmaker – Patti Stanger and was a contributing writer to LA Story.

Bargas predicted this year’s Best Picture Oscar Winner Moonlight last November during her first appearance on NBC’s Extra! in a segment called “Hollywood Tomorrow.” She is also managing editor of Entertainment 2morrow where she barely manages her co-host, Gonzo journalist Tony Sokol.

Sokol is best known as the playwright who brought Vampyr Theatre to New York City in the 90s. He appeared on dozens of radio shows, as well as been featured on The Joan Rivers Show, Strange Universe and other TV shows. His play Everybody ODs was recently revived by The Collective theatre troupe in Massachusetts. Radio (SOCRadio) Brings you quality , diverse Spiritual Shows.
