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!

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.
