Lora Craig-Gaddis's Adorable Elsie & Pooka

If you've ever tried to find materials for Pagan kids it can be a challenge. 6 or 7 years ago there was next to nothing out there for Pagan kids at all. Lora Craig-Gaddis has been one of those unsung pioneers and heros providing material that most of the Pagan Community has already unwittingly been using. Ever seen that adorable color-in-yourself "Blessed Be This Kitchen" image? That's one of Lora's. Her creations Elsie & Pooka (with matching free magazine) have been her 8+ year contribution to the very small but wholely important Pagan kids' materials. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did, and go check out her site! Enjoy!

Did you ever sit there and wonder if Pagan music was always going to be about folk or some sort of rock? If the thought of that sends shivers down your spine then fear not! Kellee Maize, hard working Pagan rapper, is here. Although that's really a misnomer. Kellee is an artist who does't relegate herself to one genre or another; her music mixes languages, styles, and content. She's my kind of artist. Go and enjoy her music videos as well!

If you've ever wondered who inspired me to start podcasting, and eventually the Proud Pagan Podcasters, wonder no more. Storm and Sorcha graciously agreed to come on the show to sit down and talk with me after all these years to give me the happiest new of July--they're baaaaaack! I sit down with them and talk about all the different changes that lead them away and back to podcasting. We talk about the changes to podcasting in general and how technology & people have definitely morphed into something that has great potential.

June was Amber's month and she chose Body Image as the topic. We were joined by Dee of PaganFM, Me (Lamyka), Rianna of The Pagan Homesteader, & Sorcha of Wicked Podcast. Dee was a last minute addition so her audio is a bit scratchy in some places but not enough to want to stab yourself in the face. Below is a reprint from the FB Event, so don't forget that every month a public event is created on FB which you can sign up for:

As the summer season hits, women are flooded with skinny girls in bikini's and told to "shape up for summer" 

As women, we have tons of different messages from several different sources. We're told to treat our bodies as temples, love them as they are, starve them into beauty, be curvy, be skinny, eat what you crave, diet, exercise as much as you can, don't look too manly, make sure you wear the right color make up this year...


With all these conflicting messages, how do we, as Pagan Women cope?

Do we feel that the media images and photoshopped models are too much? Or a necessary evil?

Do we feel that there is, in fact, and ideal body shape for us to work towards?

Does a Barbie body equal healthy?

As far as diet's go, is there a healthy diet that is good for everyone? Or what constitutes a healthy diet? 

What about vitamin supplements and weight loss pills?

What are your biggest hurdles in trying to eat healthy?

How do we view exercise and do we get enough of it?

How does body image and body health effect our lives as pagans? Rituals, community, ect...

Often, pagan women are stereotyped as overweight women in tye-dye...is this stereotype accurate? Why has this come about and should we try to change it?

How do we think body image is changing through the future generations?
