Our Own Moms Discuss Parenting in the 80’s, Their #BandOfMothers, and the Word Vagina

Our Own Moms Discuss Parenting in the 80’s, Their #BandOfMothers, and the Word Vagina

May 16, 2019

This week we sit down with our moms Lynne and MArsha (who needed stiff drinks for this one, apparently) and talk about what it was like raising kids in a different time, what we were like as kids, and why we're all glad no one gives their baby Hawaiian Punch anymore.

What we thought would be a super fun episode actually turned out to be way more insightful than expected, with a really honest look into what Breeders Before Us have in common and what is so different from then to now.

Also we try to make Tracey's mom say "penis" out loud.

Fact Check: while not the best topic to read about here are some facts about child abductions and missing kids (don't worry, this is a brief discussion, based on Grandmother worry)

Shayna and Tracey have been friends since the 8th grade – that’s over 25 years. After college, they each moved to separate coasts for a decade. They were reunited when they decided to leave big city life and settle down with their families in Denver, Colorado and Facebook told them their daughters are 3 weeks apart. After several play dates, some more childbirth, some unsuccessful pumping, and the overwhelming nature of mommy community boards, The Pump and Dump Show was born.

The show launched in 2012 in a bar in Northwest Denver and quickly grew to a bi-monthly, local staple for new moms to have a night out. In 2014, Shayna and Tracey took The Pump and Dump Show on its first national tour and continue to perform every month to audiences nationwide.

Breastfeeding Success and Heartache: A Conversation for Every Kind of Mom

Breastfeeding Success and Heartache: A Conversation for Every Kind of Mom

May 9, 2019

Whether you're way past the breastfeeding years, whether you're in the thick of it now, or whether or not you even did it, this episode it a really wonderful and fortunate eye-opener. We've wanted to do a breastfeeding episode for ages, and we knew the exact person to do it with: Amanda Ogden of The Mama'hood. What we didn't know - or rather - what we weren't prepared for was a heartfelt, honest, sometimes brutal conversation about breastfeeding that went beyond "how to" and into "why."

Why it's hard, why it hurts, why it's so shameful, why those of us who couldn't do it feel so shameful, why we've all gotten it wrong for like, ever, why giving your baby formula isn't going to ruin your baby and the world, and why there is hope that we can go back to the way things used to be...when we were all in caves.

Give this one a listen, friends. If only to hear Tracey and Shayna cry about their own struggles, and laugh at a paperclip named Stu.

Amanda Ogden, BSN, RN, IBCLC is the Co-Founder of The Mama'hood and Director of Lactation Services & Education. A former nurse, Amanda has dedicated the past 20+ years to normalizing breast feeding and making sure any mom who wants to breastfeed has the support and information to do it right. In the eight years since she opened The Mama'hood Amanda has helped over 25,000 mothers in their breastfeeding journey.

How Does She Do It? Working Moms, Stay at Home Moms and Work at Home Moms Weigh In

May 2, 2019

There are all kinds of moms, but each mom fits into one of these buckets: working mom, stay at home mom or work at home mom.

Afterthoughts: Some Things We Learned and Loved from Previous Episodes

Afterthoughts: Some Things We Learned and Loved from Previous Episodes

April 25, 2019

Well we've made it 26 whole episodes, so we thought we'd recap the last 25 to discuss some things we've learned from our special guests along the way.

The truth is, we've learned so much from everyone, but that makes for an uncomfortably long episode so we cover hacks, tips, products and lifestyle changes we've found handy. And maybe Tracey goes into too much detail about her chin hair.

What's been your favorite episode? What have you learned? What's changed your ways?

Thanks for sticking with us for this first batch - here's to 25000 more of The Pump and Dump Podcast!

Moms and Money: Spending Fast and Spending Fasts

Moms and Money: Spending Fast and Spending Fasts

April 18, 2019

Friends, #BREEDERS, let's get real about money. We love it, we hate it, we love to hate it and we hate that we love it. And then there's debt, and family planning, and kids and omg MONEY!

But what if we loved money? What if we could get ourselves out of debt and never look back? What if we changed our mindset and OWNED money LIKE A BOSS?

Well, that's what we discuss, and we have a lovely guest - Anna Newell Jones - author of The Spender’s Guide to Debt-Free Living: How a Spending Fast Helped Me Get From Broke to Badass in Record Time and Spending Fast guru who shares how she cut back her spending and paid off $24K in a little over a year and never looked back.

But we talk about more than that. For example, maybe we should (and how) all spend a skootch less on Amazon.

And,

Side note: Tracey's underwear and night shirt are *not for sale, and Shay really doesn't want to murder her husband.

And one more thing, friends. Our podcast is about exploring what it's like to be a woman, who is also a mom and all the different perspectives and ideals and ways of life that come with it. We 100% encourage you to take the discussions we have on the pod and do further research using your fine, brilliant and reasonable minds. Always feel free to reach out to our guests with more questions, and do let us know if you've found something that works, or join our private FB group and share your thoughts with an amazingly awesome and supportive #BandOfMothers. Talking and learning is good! Let's do this together!

Our Own Birth Stories: The Gauze and the C-Section

Our Own Birth Stories: The Gauze and the C-Section

April 4, 2019

If you were ever curious about our own birth stories, then this is your week. None of them was what you would call typical - but is any birth, really? We talk about the good and bad of hospital care, that scary moment you first try to breastfeed and what it must have been like for our husbands.

Spoiler alert: there is misplaced gauze, an event in an elevator, and The Police played very loudly.

MILF Of The Month: 4 Kids, 2 Parents, 1 RV and a Blog with Jill Krause

MILF Of The Month: 4 Kids, 2 Parents, 1 RV and a Blog with Jill Krause

March 28, 2019

Our MILF (Mother I'd Like To Find Out About) of the Month sold her family's dream home a year ago, got rid of almost all of their belongings, bought an RV and set out to tour the country for a year. She had 4 kids - one of which was a newborn - a husband and a dream of something different - maybe even better - than the suburban life they always thought they wanted.

Jill Krause is a renowned parenting and travel blogger - of Baby Rabies and Happy.Loud.Life fame - photographer, author of two books, and a sought after voice in the blogosphere. We talk about OMG HOW DID YOU DO THIS CRAZY THING?!? Ask her about the nitty gritty details of RV living WITH 4 KIDS (hint: the one bathroom gets ripe) and how she's navigating the transition from a years long career in the momosphere to a rebrand that maybe isn't 100% focused on just kids and being a mom. And of course we ask her how they managed to have sex.

Check out Jill's books:

Moms Discuss The Songs: Lies and Swings

Moms Discuss The Songs: Lies and Swings

March 21, 2019

This week we bring back a #BandOfMothers panel, and discuss the meanings behind two original songs from The Pump and Dump Show: Lies and Swings.

If you haven't been to our live comedy show, or heard our music (all available on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon - just search "The Pump and Dump Show") then you'll get to hear two of our most popular songs. After, we have a lively discussion with real moms about the themes from each song...mainly, the lies we told ourselves before we had kids, and even though there are so many things we LOVE to do with our kiddos, there are also a few things we really, really, hate to do.

Enjoy the music, enjoy the round table and let us know what Lies YOU told yourself before you had kids and also do you hate pushing your kid on the swings as much as Shay does? Thank you Nikki and Megan for joining us!

Body Love with Plus Mommy’s Jen McLellan

Body Love with Plus Mommy’s Jen McLellan

March 14, 2019

The truth is there are ALL kinds of moms, but not all moms are wholly represented and most are grossly under-advocated for and mistreated when it comes to health care.

Our guest this week is the luminous Jen McLellan, host of Plus Mommy Podcast and the founder of Plus Size Birth. Jen's story of navigating her own birth plan as a plus size mom-to-be is nothing short of infuriating, and her ideals and perspectives on what this country keeps as priorities when it comes to women is truly enlightening.

Jen's seeks to create an environment of acceptance and end the stigma surrounding plus size pregnancy with education, support, and a sense of humor. She’s also a certified childbirth, educator, wife, and mother to a charismatic 8-year-old.

We have all the questions, we discuss fat vaginas, and we hope you take the time to hear a smart powerful woman talk about how to be smart, powerful, women.

Be sure to download Jen's podcast Plus Mommy Podcast

Why Moms Drink: PPD, Peer Pressure, Play Dates and Getting Sober

Why Moms Drink: PPD, Peer Pressure, Play Dates and Getting Sober

March 7, 2019

Today being a mom - especially a new mom - is almost synonymous with drinking. Whether it's the constant onslaught of memes and videos joking about how we all need wine online, social pressure to drink at play dates - or even the zoo - or just the unbearable stress and loneliness that surprises thousands of women after they have a baby, wine culture and the celebration of booze and mommyhood is rampant these days. The truth is, this doesn't adversely affect the lives of many women. However, for some, the pressure to drink, and the accessibility and acceptance of drinking as a mom makes it all too easy to turn something that should be moderately recreational into a big time problem.

In this episode we discuss our role in this world having created a mom's night out and live production called The Pump and Dump Show which is often associated with drinking. We also have a beautifully raw and honest conversation with mom, actress and totally amazing nail technician Glennis McCarthy about what it's like to realize you have a problem with booze as a new mom and then what it's like to finally get sober. We talk about postpartum depression, feeling overwhelmed and blindsided with motherhood, and the joy of loving our kids and our lives just the way they are.

MILF of the Month: Tarot, Religion, Miscarriage and All Things Woo with the “Divine” Kristin Rand

MILF of the Month: Tarot, Religion, Miscarriage and All Things Woo with the “Divine” Kristin Rand

March 1, 2019

Our MILF of the Month (Mother I'd Like To Find Out About) is comedian, mom and tarot reader, Kristin Rand. Kristin's journey to finding love (and then finding herself in Birmingham, Alabama) is pretty darn interesting, but we have, like 10,000 questions to ask her about tarot reading (seriously, WHAT IS IT) crystals, (do they work???) and ALL THINGS WOO.

We realize we've had a few woo podcasts, but Breeders - we need to get to the bottom of this current trend that's sweeping the nation and find out if the woo works, or if the woo is woosh*t.

In addition, we take a side step to discuss Kristin's recent miscarriage and how she healed; and why she's been so open about sharing it.

And then we go back to crystals.

And then she pulls a tarot card for us. Woo Hoo!

If you're totally anti, but still a little curious, we hope you'll take a listen. If you're definitely curious and want to know more, take a listen as well. Shay and Tracey divulge their own recent woo woo adventures and why they think pulling an oracle card might be a good idea for some peace of mind.

No one levitates or meditates and no spells are cast. It's about as friendly a woo conversation you're gonna get, from three moms trying to find their place in the world.

Enjoy!

Please Explain Essential Oils

Please Explain Essential Oils

February 14, 2019

We're back on the #wellness train this week, exploring WTF is up with essential oils. Tracey loves them, Shay isn't so sure. Do they work? How? And why? Which oils should we buy and where and OMG ESSENTIAL OILS ARE SO CONFUSING!

Join us as we chat with Jennifer Siddens, licensed aromatherapist, autism advocate, wellness advocate and mother of two boys. Her story about her son with special needs and her journey (she hates that word) to oils is compelling, to say the least. We get into a bit of science, and bit of "can we put oils on our girly parts" and we learn why we should all be slathering Frankincense on our boobs.

Whether you're team plant juice or not, this is a darn honest discussion about essential oils with a healthy dose of skepticism and science to round it out. Enjoy!

Follow Jen's gorgeous IG account, @jenniferksiddens. She writes (beautifully) about raising a son with autism, super helpful tips on how to use those oils in times of desperate need and also there's just a lot of pretty photos that will just make you happy.

And if you'd like a free 30 minute consultation, you can DM Jen through IG.

Shayna and Tracey have been friends since the 8th grade – that’s over 25 years. After college, they each moved to separate coasts for a decade. They were reunited when they decided to leave big city life and settle down with their families in Denver, Colorado and Facebook told them their daughters are 3 weeks apart. After several play dates, some more childbirth, some unsuccessful pumping, and the overwhelming nature of mommy community boards, The Pump and Dump Show was born.

Boogers and Breastmilk with 13-Week Dad, Adam Cayton-Holland

Boogers and Breastmilk with 13-Week Dad, Adam Cayton-Holland

February 7, 2019

This week we thought we'd pick the brain of a brand new dad to see what it's like to...be a dad! We know how it feels to be a mom, but we're always curious about the father side of things. Luckily, we were able to have a lively, hilarious and heartfelt conversation from brand new dad, and comedian, and actor and author, Adam Cayton-Holland.

You may have seen Adam's brilliant stand up on Comedy Central, or watched him on TruTV's hilarious comedy, Those Who Can't (which he co-created) or maybe you've read his beautiful memoir Tragedy Plus Time, but we bet you've never heard him talk about how much he loves to get boogers out of his son's nose, or that he really, really can't wait to wash baby bottles. Really.

Enjoy!
