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.

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.

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

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!

If you'd like to reach out to Kristin for a reading and such, check out her Instagram page which will lead you to her services and pricing.

Do you feel like the minute that baby came into your life your face started to fall off your face? Ever wonder what you're gonna look like 20 years from now and hope there's something you can do to weather the aging storm? The truth is being a mom to 1 or 10 kids puts the years on FAST...inside and out...and not many of us have the ability to go the Hollywood route and get facials and treatments once a week while taking advantage of the latest anti-aging/weight loss technology (we sure don't.) SO WHAT CAN WE DO? And WTF is dry brushing?? AND PLEASE EXPLAIN COOL SCULPTING.

The good news is, we can do quite a lot really. Our guest Dr. Jamé Heskitt founder of The Well Path Clinic and author of The Well Path breaks down a handful of easy hacks to integrate into our lives that will help us feel good and look good.

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.

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.

MILF Of The Month: Pilates, Disabilities and Lube with Clara Gelatt

January 31, 2019

January's MILF (Mother I'd Like To Find Out About) Of The Month is mother of three and founder of Pilates Collective, Clara Gelatt. Not only is Clara an awesome mom, but she's basically a healer. Just ask Tracey. Her journey to becoming one of Denver's most thoughtful and integrative Pilates instructors is equal parts her own desire to help women become strong and healthy + leaning into a mind/body practice that could help her husband with Muscular Dystrophy.

We chat with Clara about balancing three young kids while running a business, what it's like to be married to a man with a disability and in a wheelchair; as well as her frustrations with the lack of post-partum care for women and her philosophy behind how and why she practices Pilates. (Spoiler: it's not to get you skinny.) And then we somehow nose-dive into a brief discussion about lube...but it is absolutely NOT what you think it is about. Listen to it, and then please leave a comment if the "lube talk" happened to you lol.

And speaking of lube...wouldn't you know Shayna has a song from the old days about just that thing, so you're in for a treat with a Shayna Ferm ditty from the archives.

Marriage After Babies and the Curse of Resentment

January 24, 2019

Wow. This one is a doozy. No matter what state your marriage or partnership might be in, something changes (usually many things) once that first baby arrives. There's irritation, there's miscommunication, there's exhaustion, there's doubt and insecurity and there's a whole lot of resentment.

Thanks to the amazing and insightful feedback from our #BandOfMothers Facebook group, we gathered so many thoughts and perspectives about marriage after kids, and then we basically flooded our guest with all of them.

Join a really raw and honest (and somehow slightly funny) conversation with our amazing guest, Angela Sasseville, relationship expert, mom, wife of 19 years (and counting) and founder of Flourish Counseling and Coaching as we try to figure out why we're so bitter and resentful towards our husbands, and also how do we dig out of those early, dark days of parenting and keep a happy marriage.

Tuck in to this one, breeders. And then head on over to our FB group to continue the conversation if you'd like.

And then! A song about #MTHRFKRS! Enjoy! #dontcallitbabysitting

As founder and Chief Creative Officer she’s the author of Flourish’ proprietary relationship curriculum, Relationships That Not Only Last But THRIVE.  Her self-help guide for couples chronicles the insights and habits needed for marital survival during stressful times and became an award winning book, Families Under Financial Stress. She’s a contributing author to the Amazon best-seller I Choose Me: The Art of being a Phenomenally Successful Woman at Home & At Work by Cynthia James.  Angela has been interviewed by Parents magazine, The Denver Post and the Associated Press.  She has appeared on 9 NEWS, has been featured on PBS, and she has written blogs for MomsRising.org.

The Tale of the Yurt Baby and The Yurt Baby’s Tale

January 17, 2019

Settle in #breeders, because you do not want to miss these two amazing stories. In this week's episode Shayna and Tracey interview a mother and daughter who share their remarkable birth stories. Ahva Lenay had her baby in a yurt at the top of a mountain in the 80's - YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT - and her daughter Niya Gingerich doesn't make it to the mountain for the birth of her own daughter, but it's a home birth with a twist. If you love hearing birth stories, this is for you. If you're curious about births outside the hospital, this is for you. And if you just love hearing tales of bravery, hardship and love from amazing, every day women then THIS IS FOR YOU!

If you're in Denver, Niya and her husband own Local46 on Tennyson Street in the Highlands. Local46 was the birthplace to the very first Pump and Dump Show, and is one of those perfect, welcoming, cozy neighborhood bars that is a staple in the community. They have live music every night, and literally the best beer garden in Denver. Find out more here:

Resolutions Moms Can Keep and Quit with Special Guest Betsy Stover

January 10, 2019

Sure it's January, but this episode discusses all the resolutions that moms can keep, and QUIT. What if we let more things go (what up mom guilt) and maybe refrain from piling more massive pressure on our plates? What if we were cool with some smaller accomplishments rather than "I'm going to slay this year and everything is going to be awesome and perfect always?"

Shay and Tracey share their 2019 resolutions - or rather - intentions - because it's 2019 and that's how we talk now. Also, they discuss why they're stepping back from Instagram...but with nothing but love.

And a very special guest: actress, UCB Improv goddess and mom of three boys Betsy Stover of Why Mommy Drinks Podcast shares what's she's thinking about for the coming year, and what she thinks moms need to let go for good.

And last, if you have any great bread recipes or book recommendations, Tracey and Shayna are all in. Oh, and (this is not sponsored) here's our favorite Unpaper Towels aka "Wipe Ups."

MILF Of The Month: Adoption, Race, Divorce and Auctioneering with Debbie Scheer

December 13, 2018

Our MILF (Mother I'd Like To Find Out About) Of The Month is Debbie Scheer, a fantastically funny, ridiculously talented, and fiercely dedicated mom. She talks about adopting and raising her two black sons, her views on race in this crazy world, navigating a divorce, her love of Costco, and her awesome multi-faceted jobs as a humorist, speaker and auctioneer. Auctioneer!

Our new monthly series follows every day moms and their not-so-every-day stories. We think the women who make up all our lives are infinitely fascinating, so we are spending an episode every month digging deeper into the lives of women around us, who also happen to be moms.

To find out more about Debbie, visit Debbie Scheer Speaks, and if you're in Denver, keep an eye out for this lady (probably at Costco) she's all over the town doing shows, fundraisers and events, and also just at Costco.

And if you're curious, the book she recommends in this episode is called So You Want To Talk About Race by Ijeoma Olou.

Please Explain Makeup

November 29, 2018

So here's the deal: we're in our 40's and still don't really understand how to put on makeup. We realize that this isn't the most cutting edge of pressing issues to discuss BUT HERE US OUT - we have a feeling a lot of moms don't understand makeup just like us, and we also feel like a lot of moms don't want to watch a YouTube tutorial by a 19 year old.

We decided to bring our friend and internationally acclaimed makeup artist (and mom!) Katelyn Simkins to our podcast table and grill here on all the things we've been dying to know but were afraid to ask. Is lip liner still a thing? What's up with lash serum? (Tracey heard it can make you go blind or change your eye color or something.) What product makes us look old? What product makes us look young? Why does Katelyn love castor oil so much?

It's a riveting hour of clueless femininity and in the end we learned a lot. We hope you do too!

Ask Us Anything! We’re Drunk!

November 15, 2018

What happens when two comedians force themselves to talk about themselves and answer questions about themselves when they don't really love discussing themselves? They drink Bloody Marys and plow through it.

If you've ever wanted to know a little bit more about Shayna and Tracey beyond what you see at The Pump and Dump Show (and if you want to hear Tracey talk into a straw, because vodka) then settle in for a very lively, very Zing Zang-y "Ask Us Anything" episode.

Some items to note:

*The Bloody Mary mix of choice is: Zing Zang (you can pretty much get it anywhere, it's not expensive at all, and it's in a red and green plastic bottle.)

*Shay and Tracey are STILL discussing their love of Vionic orthopedic slippers.

*If you have any Birding tips (#nerdalert) or know of a good solar powered bird bath for Colorado winters please let Tracey know.

*And Shayna really needs a hobby. (Suggestions welcome.)

Airing Our Dirty Laundry Pt. 2

November 8, 2018

We continue our round table conversation about the real way we lead our domestic lives. If you've listened to Part 1, then Part 2 will give you all the intel you've been hoping which is mainly: HOW OFTEN DOES EVERYONE CHANGE THEIR SHEETS? There's more juiciness to this episode than just sheets, however. What other questions do we pull from the fruit bowl? You'll have to listen to get the dirty low-down.

Oh, and because people have been asking, our favorite cozy, orthotic, don't-hurt-our-back slippers are from Vionic. Tracey found them a year ago (maybe more?) when they were listed as one of Oprah's Favorite Things, and they DO NOT disappoint.

As always, we'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts. Email us anytime at pumpanddumpshowATgmail.com, leave a rating or comment on your podcast app, or tell us IRL and come see us at a show!

**************

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.
