THE GODDESS ATTAINABLE PODCAST
Hello, I’m Libby Saylor and this is The Goddess Attainable Podcast. This podcast is essentially my spoken journal, where I talk about pretty much anything I want. I share about my life, love and relationships, spirituality and healing, art and inspiration, and anything else that tickles my fancy, all remaining under the umbrella of female empowerment, which is kinda my thing. And I’mma keep it real and raw. So, I hope you’ll be my witness for this journey, and I’ll try to keep you entertained!

19. Mixed Media Art For the Eyes and the Soul
In this episode, I fangirl over Deborah Roberts, mixed media artist living and working in Houston, Texas. This is not an interview with Deborah. But instead, I give a heartfelt goddess shoutout. And I share details about her work, and why she inspires me enough to devote an entire podcast episode to her!
I also share about my own personal experiences with mixed media art-making, as I am also a mixed-media artist (sort of). And I offer information about how to find, follow, and fangirl this incredibly talented, dedicated, and phenomenal artist.
Deborah Roberts’ work has been exhibited internationally across the US and Europe; and is included in collections at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, NYC, and LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), among others. Her work has been published in Art in America, Vogue, New York Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, and New York Times. Roberts received her MFA from Syracuse University, New York.
“My process combines found and manipulated images with hand drawn and painted details to create hybrid figures. These figures often take the form of young girls and increasingly Black boys, whose well-being and futures are equally threatened because of the double standard of boyhood and criminality that is projected on them at such a young age. The boys and girls who populate my work, while subject to societal pressures and projected images, are still unfixed in their identity. Each child has character and agency to find their own way amidst the complicated narratives of American, African American and art history.” -Deborah Roberts

18. Navigating the Male-Dominated Financial World as a Female
In this episode, I fangirl over Sallie Krawcheck, Founder and CEO of Ellevest. This is not an interview with Sallie. But instead, I give a heartfelt goddess shoutout. And share details about her work, and why she inspires me enough to devote an entire podcast episode to her!
“Sallie Krawcheck’s professional mission is to help women reach their financial and professional goals (or, put more bluntly, to get more money into the hands of women), thus enabling them to live better lives and unleashing a positive ripple effect for our families, our communities and our economy.” -Ellevate Network
From my experience, Sallie seems not only dedicated to helping women invest, plan, and save for healthy futures, but also educating women about money. And empowering women to handle their own finances, regardless of their relationship status, age, or gender.
In this episode, I also fangirl to the max about Ellevest, since I recently joined and am loving it! I share about my own personal experiences with money, investing, and finances. And I give lots of tips and advice about how to navigate the Ellevest platform. I love money. I love talking about it, saving it, counting it, keeping track of it, and having it!!

17. Are You Taking Ownership Of Your Life Or Is It The Other Way Around
In this episode, I share with you a message from the goddess Gaia about taking a closer look at your own life to make sure you’re happy with the foundation of happiness that you are building. I explore various examples of what it looks like when your life owns you, and when you are taking OWNERSHIP of your life. These examples include issues regarding your dating life, your work life, saying no to things and forming healthy boundaries, and making time for yourself. I also suggest using lists and vision boards to get clear about your happiness quotient if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed thinking about it.

16. If You Want To Be A Modern-Day Goddess…
If you want to be a modern-day goddess, you need a set of goddess power tools to keep you on track. In this episode, I discuss my top 6 goddess power tools and share how they have helped me on my goddess path. These tools will help to continue to remind you of the goddess you truly are. And they are certain to help you get back on track when you’ve veered off the path of goddess-ness, as all goddesses do.
15. How To Heal Your Wounded Inner Child
In this episode, I’m going to share with you an incredible exercise that I have used time and time again to heal my deep-seated, hard to get at, inner-child wounds. You don’t have to have come from a dysfunctional family, or have had a super dark childhood to have these kinds of wounds. If you’re human, you have feelings. And when you’re a child, your feelings are sensitive, vulnerable, and exposed. And sometimes, they get hurt. So, this topic truly applies to everyone. Again, as long as you’re a human being, you’re probably going to get something out of this!

14. How To Navigate The Intricate World Of Medicinal Essential Oils
In this episode, I’m going to share with you my 10 years of experience with medicinal essential oils.

11. Staph Infection On My Bum
This is a pretty straightforward tale about a staph infection on my ass. But this story also ties deeply into my history with fear and trauma. It’s all about the root chakra, baby. And my root chakra was freaking out when I first started dating. I believe this staph infection was simply a symptom of all of my dating and intimacy fears coming to the surface. And I needed to heal them in order to move forward successfully in my journey to finding love. This staph infection was an invitation to heal, but damn was it painful!

6. Twin Sisters Discuss Beauty and Body Image
My twin sissie and I discuss and analyze three random women she saw in a bagel shop. And we dive deep into how we compare ourselves to other women, judge other women, and feel insecure compared to other women. We also share about our own inability to apply makeup, despite observing for years our mother’s daily makeup routine. **T.M.I. ALERT** There’s also some period stuff and some teeth and hair card stuff in here, because that’s just important as all the rest.

My twin sister and I use our Virgo critical minds to analyze our favorite pop culture topics. We discuss Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Britney, Janet Jackson, and Madonna. And then I pose the question, “Who is more of a goddess, Leslie Mann or Rita Wilson?” I also contemplate why everyone is so anti-Shelly Long. And finally, we play the casting game and select actresses best suited for a modern-day, mainstream Joan of Arc film. And food. There’s always food to be discussed.
