The Pump and Dump Podcast
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.

Enjoy!

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.

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

Rip-Offs, Amazon and Surviving in the Baby Industry

Rip-Offs, Amazon and Surviving in the Baby Industry

June 27, 2019

In this week's episode we have the delight and honor to hear our friend and founder of ezpz, Lindsey Laurain, talk about her remarkable journey as an inventor, entrepreneur and Shark Tank survivor. Lindsey's trials and successes are both frustrating and inspiring. She shares what it's like to not only have her designs ripped off and sold everywhere, but also discovering her videos and photos (which included images of her children) stolen and used all over the internet to sell fraudulent product.

Lindsey's story is full of grit and determination and you'll be shocked at what you *thought* you knew about the origins of many of the products we see sold on the shelves of our favorite stores and websites. Grab a cup of coffee and sit back for this eye-opening, wild ride!

Relationship Intimacy: Turning It Back On

Relationship Intimacy: Turning It Back On

June 6, 2019

Is this a nagging question in the back of your brain? What are some tips for reconnecting with my partner? I feel like we're just co-existing.

We're pretty sure we've all had that thought about our partners at one point or another. When did the spark did? Where the heck did it go? Is it me? Is it him? Why do I feel so bitter? I'm so burned out, I can't even begin to focus on an intimate relationship right now. Why won't everybody stop touching me??

After our Going Down To Pound Town Episode 3 we thought we should bring back guest Amanda Testa to dig deeper into how we can reignite our feminine fire, stop feeling so bad about ourselves, and maybe even learn to ask for what we really want in the bedroom. It is possible to turn back on the intimacy meter, and it's definitely possible to overcome resentment and miscommunication - but it does take work. Spoiler Alert: she has some amazing tips on how to make that happen.

Join us for a raw (Tracey starts crying) and honest look at what it takes to keep a partnership alive and enjoy some super practical "mom hacks" (if you will) on how to re-up your communication with your spouse. Sounds easy, takes work, totally worth it. Enjoy!

Be sure and follow (or hire!) Amanda and download her free intimacy guide created just for our Band Of Mothers.

And most importantly, download her podcast Find Your Feminine Fire!

Feeding Our Families, Eating Crickets and What the Heck is Grass-Finished?

Feeding Our Families, Eating Crickets and What the Heck is Grass-Finished?

May 30, 2019

FOOD. We need it. We love it. We don't really understand it. And it's kind of amazing that we're in charge of feeding tiny humans what we really don't understand and then to that point HOW THE HECK DO WE KNOW WE'RE GIVING EVERYONE THE RIGHT STUFF? How do WE know we're eating the right stuff? What IS the right stuff? Why is soy in everything and why does coconut water taste so horrible?

Anyway, we enlisted the insight of Nutritional Therapist, Maya Strausberg, and while she doesn't give us all the answers (we couldn't logically have a 5 hour episode about food...right?) she does help quelle our fears and anxieties about what we're eating and what we're feeding our family and at the very least how much sugar is too much to in a packet of fruit snacks or a protein bar.

If you'd like to learn more about Maya's practice and services visit Family Tree Nutrition.

And FYI, here are the two "crack" salts Tracey loves:

Fleur de Sel Le Saunier de Camargue (should be between $7-$10 depending where you find it)

Maldon Salt Flakes (you can usually find this in most spice sections of most grocery stores...look towards the bottom shelves)

And of you didn't know already, Perfect Bars (Dark Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter) are basically what's been keeping us alive for the past year.

What are your thoughts on food and nutrition for your family? What works for you? What don't you care about? What do you worry about?

We love you!

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)

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.

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!

Is it legal? Will it make you high? Is it just a gimmick? And what about pot? Should we Just Say No or is there more to the story?

Luckily, our special guest, Ashley Kingsley co-founder of Ellamenta.com, is well versed in the weed-o-sphere and just so happens to believe women, in particular, can benefit immensely from all the amazing properties of hemp and cannabis.

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.

Thanks for allowing us to reminisce!

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.

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:
