Mindful Parenting and Cyber Security for Kids in the Digital Age

Mindful Parenting and Cyber Security for Kids in the Digital Age

September 19, 2019

Screen time for kids is about as ubiquitous to childhood as peanut butter and jelly - but secretly, don't we all wonder... is it all ok? We've all heard the horror stories, the urban myths and the mommy-war warnings...but what's legit, and to be honest...where do we even start?

Join us for a very honest and frank (but surprisingly palatable) conversation with Liz Repking, founder and senior Cyber Safety Expert at Cyber Safety Consulting. Liz is the mother of 3 children, ranging in age from middle school to college. After entering the workforce over 20 years ago, she spent a majority of her career working as a technical consultant, developing and delivering a variety of training courses for clients.

Many years ago, Liz became acutely aware of the dangers the Internet posed to children like her own. While parents recognize these dangers, they are uncomfortable and even intimidated by the depth and breadth of the technology their children use. This led Liz to create Cyber Safety Consulting with the goal of educating parents, children, and school educators on the safe, savvy, and ethical use of the digital world.

We'd love to know your thoughts on this topic, and what you do to protect your kiddos from the WWW.

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 in September 2019 The Pump and Dump Show expanded with additional casts performing all around the country.

Please Explain the Enneagram

Please Explain the Enneagram

September 12, 2019

Don't worry, this isn't a weird cult endeavor. The Enneagram is actually a very unique personality profile unlike anything else and it's kind of rocked our worlds. (In all the best ways.)

In this episode we chat with psychotherapist (and mom!) Nancy Goodman, LCSW whose practice specializes in helping with prenatal and postpartum life issues, parenting, and trauma. Nancy uses the Enneagram as a tool to help illuminate motivations that might shape our behavior, and we ask her all the questions, including how can knowing your Enneagram number make you a better parent? And most importantly, can we type our kids right now??

We also discuss our own personality types as a point of reference, and probably reveal way too many uncomfortable things about our personalities. But hey! That's what this podcast is for! :)

If you're curious, here's some of the Enneagram resources we talk about:

The Enneagram Institute / $12 RHETI test (we highly reccommend)

The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Don Riso and Russ Hudson

Enneagram Worldwide aka The Narrative Enneagram

The Road Back to You by Ian Morgon Cron and Suzanna Stabile

Visit Nancy Goodman's practice at: A Parent Connection

August 29, 2019

Buckle up and listen to the wild tale of Lynn Bodnar, a mom of three who found herself pregnant at 43 WITH HER FOURTH KID even though her husband had gotten a vasectomy years before.

Please Explain The Pump and Dump Show Expansion

Please Explain The Pump and Dump Show Expansion

August 22, 2019

In case you've missed all our posts on social, we wanted to fill you in on some big changes at the old P&D.

We didn’t start The Pump and Dump Show with any expectations. We were two moms with tiny babies who needed a night out and some validation and knew that other moms might need that too. We never imagined it would grow up big and strong like our own children have. We certainly never could have predicted that our 1-yr-olds would be 8-yr-olds and we’d still be on the road. We have traveled the country, listened to your stories, hugged your tears away, laughed with you and have done our best to validate you and we won’t stop. 

Here’s the thing: We believe full-heartedly that this show has never been about us, Shayna and Tracey. It’s always been about YOU. We have dedicated the last seven years, despite the painfully early morning flights, random bomb cyclones and airport diarrhea, to bringing humor and generosity to as many moms as we can and that’s really all we want to do. So you guys - we have decided to produce multiple live shows at the same time so we can reach more cities and more moms. We have found two amazing new casts to start performing this Fall. You will be blown away at how authentic and funny and talented they are; we are beyond excited to see what Angela, Molly, Jilly and Amy bring to the show. 

In this episode we discuss all of our recent changes in detail with the one and only Debbie Scheer.  We also talk about what it's like to build a business with your bestie, and what it feels like to be on the road for 5 years, and how Tracey is a mega nerd who only wants to play Catan. And we cry a bit, because we've kind of been crying all summer.

We don't love just talking about ourselves, so thank you Debbie for bringing us out of our shell!

And friends! Get tickets to an upcoming NEW show! You're gonna love it!

Skeptical? Yeah, we were too. Like, majorly skeptical. However, Caitlin Doemner (mama of 4 kiddos and author of Sex Every Day) has quite a philosophy about the whole thing, and if you dare to open your mind, she makes some good points.

Have a listen and let us know if you're willing to prioritize pleasure in your partnership for two weeks. No seriously - LET US KNOW!

Please Explain Skin Care

Please Explain Skin Care

August 8, 2019

Ladies it's time to take control of our skin. For too long we've stumbled along, ignorantly grabbing bottle after bottle of whatever miracle potion we're convinced will solve our face problems, only to be bested, wronged and frustrated.

In this episode we grill Medical Aesthetician (and mama) Kyle Soule of Revive Skin FX with all our burning questions about skin care. We break down ingredients, discuss about an easy nighttime routine, ask what we can actually buy at the grocery store, and learn some very interesting deets on our pillowcases. We could have talked to her for hours. There's so much to know!

Here's a few products we discussed in case you're Tracey and need the Skin Scrubber more than anything else in life.

Skin Scrubber Blackhead Remover

Sio Anti-Wrinkle Silicone Gel Pads

Vital Proteins Collagen

Obaji

What Do Teachers Really Want From Parents?

What Do Teachers Really Want From Parents?

August 1, 2019

Haven't you been dying to know what teachers think of us behind the scenes? How annoying are we when we email? What about calling? Volunteering? Do teachers even like parents? Seriously, aren't you curious? Whether it's daycare, preschool, elementary or high school, these thoughts don't really go away, and there isn't one of us who hasn't at some point wondered what teachers really think about being teachers.

Well on this episode we interview Ms. Josie, an elementary school teacher in Denver and she tells us like it is. We ask her all the questions, including the most important: can we give wine to teachers as gifts?

Join us for a fun, honest, down-to-earth conversation about parents and teachers and kids and how we can make it better for all of us.

A Mom’s Journey Through Preemie Babies, Divorce and Starting a Social Justice Company

A Mom’s Journey Through Preemie Babies, Divorce and Starting a Social Justice Company

July 18, 2019

This is a tale of a woman who had a preemie baby in NICU, went through a divorce, quit her social worker job and opened a micro business for social change all within 24 months. This is a tale to remind us that we can do hard things and that women - moms - are capable of anything we put our minds to.

Listen as we chat with Hope Tank founder, Erika Righter, as she walks us through a series of extraordinary life events - any of which could bury any one of us - and followed her heart's passion to create a for-profit business designed to help others with every dollar they earn. If you're in a rut or looking for inspiration to get your butt in gear and pursue your dreams, this may be the podcast you've been yearning for.

Visit HopeTank.org or stop by Erika's one of kind shop when you're in Denver.

Please Explain Hormones and WTF is Functional Medicine?

Please Explain Hormones and WTF is Functional Medicine?

July 11, 2019

Ever wanted to have a real conversation with your doctor? Like a REAL one? Where you can ask all the questions without feeling stupid? Maybe even laugh a little? Is that even possible? Just jokes. It totally is, but it seems more and more rare these days. Add to that the large spectrum of conflicts and confusion that comes with being a woman, and a lot of us are left in the dark about what it really means to get - and stay - healthy, what and how our hormones work, and it's sometimes even hard to understand what pills you're taking a why.

In this episode we sit down with functional medicine practitioner (and mom!), Sarah Tyler, APRN, MSN, FNP-C and we ask her all the things. Including what the heck is functional medicine?

Even if you think you have a handle on this health thing you may be surprised about a few things and learn some easy-to-implement tools to a more balanced well being.

To reach out to Sarah directly, please contact Sound Clinic
