Ok friends, we've #shelteredinplace for like 20+ weeks and now things are - believe it or not - getting even more complicated. As we begin to reopen our lives, there are a LOT of questions (and even more feelings) about how to navigate re-engaging with friends, family and the world. The problem for moms, however, is how do we expand our social circles without pissing off our mom friends, while also staying true to the parameters we feel are right for our families? WILL WE EVER HAVE A #MOMSNIGHTOUT? Will our kid's ever have a playdate? And why do we feel like we hate everyone? Our friend - and Life Coach - Valerie Firedlander hels us out with this awkward #pandemic transition, and offers a lot of level-headed insight about how we can all remain friends through this shit show. We hope this helps!

This week we begin to dip our toes into a departure from #quarantinecheckins and back to looking at what it's like to be a woman who happens to be a mom, and we feel like our chat with GIT Mom founder and parenting coach Eirene Heildelberger was the perfect segway. If you're feeling like you need a mom-confidence kick in the booty, Eirene is your woman. The GIT Mom system is the only system that focuses on the mom, rather than the kids, allowing moms to give their children the parenting they need so they have time to do the activities they most enjoy! GIT Mom teaches you how to parent more efficiently so that you have more “me” time. The journey to becoming GIT Mom was not a simple one for Eirene. Her oldest son was not an easy baby. As a clueless first-time mom, Eirene was anxious and stressed and she missed her pre-baby life. After a few months of struggle, Eirene committed to doing things differently. She learned to compartmentalize his crying and her irrational need to “do it all”. She perfected a sleep schedule and carved out personal time in her weekly schedule. These small adjustments were just the seeds of the GIT Mom system, which now is being used full-time by moms around the country. Today, Eirene assists moms with every type of parenting issue, such as sleep training, scheduling, returning back to work, and teaching kids the value of listening and respecting others. All with the ultimate goal of empowering moms to be happy, confident, guilt-free parents. Because if mama isn’t happy, then no-one is! In addition to running GIT Mom, Eirene is happily married and has three sons. With the GIT Mom system in full effect she has plenty of family time, but still gets her work-out in, drinks her beloved wine and watches plenty of the Real Housewives. Here's some things we cover: We share our own parenting insecurities and our struggles with being a threatening mom, bribing mom and yelling mom. Mom Guilt Raising children that know the world doesn’t revolve around then.  How happy, confident moms raise healthy confident children How Eirene is a coach who focuses on mom's happiness first, and believes that from there you can be a great parent If you're feeling overwhelmed these days, or even if you just second-guess your decisions from time to time, have a listen and realize you're a unicorn, but you also are not a unicorn and that's ok. You're doing a GREAT job!

Hey, friends! It's Self Isolation week 1000 and we're feeling it. This week's episode is utterly delightful, and while we went in with the intention of Quarantine Talking, what evolved was a beautiful discussion about social media, postpartum depression, finding yourself again, living your authentic life and we're so here for it. If you're not already familiar with humorist and mom of three, Cydni Beer, you are in for a treat (Although we're pretty sure you've seen at least half a dozen of he viral tweets coming through your feed.) What started as a simple way to dig herself out of massive postpartum depression, has turned into a full-fledged, bonafied, high-profile account, and we chat with Cydni about the nexus of her social media efforts, how it's helped her and how she sees it helping others. If you think this episode can help a loved one who is struggling with PPD, please pass it on! Follow Cydni on: Twitter Instagram We hope you guys are all healthy and safe. We miss you, and love you! And please mark your calendars for our first ever #MomsNightIn - A Mother's Day Eve Special Event! For the past 7 years, The Pump and Dump Show has hosted a wildly popular #MothersDayEve celebration for thousands of moms, with comedy, laughter, and love. While this year’s live events have unfortunately been cancelled, the show will go on! On Saturday, May 9th, Band of Mothers Media and HeyMama.co will present a free online comedy show celebrating Mother’s Day, to give moms worldwide an hour to themselves to relax and laugh. The event is free for all to attend, but the goal is to raise money for Glennon Doyle’s foundation, Together Rising, to help financially support families in need during this crisis. The event will feature all three casts of The Pump and Dump Show, who will be performing a unique and never before seen adaptation of their nationally touring performance live via Zoom. Join us for an hour of comedy, original music, games, prizes and surprises, and take a much needed break from family isolation life!

Ok guys, time to address the elephant in the room. Parents across America are STRUGGLING with Remote Learning or Virtual Learning or Prison School (as Tracey calls it) and loads of kids are struggling even more. This global pandemic has upended all our lives in so many ways, but those of us with school aged children have a whole new layer of anxiety, stress and frustration when it comes to navigating remote learning with our kiddos. So, let's talk about it. In this episode we go deep with Ms. Josie a 4th grade teacher here in Denver (you may remember her from Episode 37 - What Do Teachers Really Want From Parents?) and we hold nothing back. But neither does she. We ask her all the questions we've all had these past few weeks, and she offers quite a lot of perspective from both sides of the school desk. If you've had any grumblings while trying to navigate virtual learning these past few weeks (and who hasn't?) please do yourself a favor: lock yourself in the closest - or better yet - go for a looong walk and take the time to listen to this very important conversation. We hope it helps. We love you! This sucks, but we know you're doing the best you can. And to all the teachers trying to make the best of an equally crappy situation. We salute you. We really, really do. Things we're into: If you're looking for links to anything we've mentioned on our podcasts it's all in one awesome area on our Band of Mothers App!

** Hey BREEDERS! Can we ask you a quick favor? If you haven't already, could you please subscribe to this podcast and leave a review? AND, if you want to score some serious #momkarma, could you share some of your favorite Band of Mothers Podcast episodes with your friends and family? Thank you!! ** Hi friends! We're in week 4, approximately day 30ish of self-isolation and honestly we don't know if we're coming or going. Things are settling in but also we're starting to get a skootch annoyed with things. And by things we mean family. And by family we mean the loud kids and no personal space. You? This week's #QuarantineCheckIn is with Shay's sister-in-law, Jenara - a woman we both love madly, and a mom who is in the US epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak: NYC. We ask her what life is like there (really) how it feels to lock down inside a 750 sq ft railroad apartment with her family, and what else the internet can give her to bake. (Also, she made the Dalanga coffee, and she has opinions.) Also updates from Shay and Tracey including a report on what it's like to visit an emergency room during a global pandemic BECAUSE TRACEY'S DAUGHTER BROKE HER ARM, and other tales of winning at parenting. Enjoy! And stay safe, #BREEDERS! We love you all so so so much!

AND, if you want to score some serious #momkarma, could you share some of your favorite Band of Mothers Podcast episodes with your friends and family? Thank you!! ** Hey there! How are you? How's it going out there in isolation land? Feeling like your nerves are still frayed to their very edges, or are you beginning to settle in? We're somewhere in the middle, but it feels like there are more good days happening than bad this past week, so we'll call that a win. For this week's #QuarantineCheckIn we chat with the great Kristin Goodman: director of The Pump and Dump Show, film director, theatre director, playwright, writer, mom and light of our lives. We hope you're enjoying our hiatus from our normal programming to bring you these check-ins during this crazy time, and we REALLY hope you listen in to this one. Kristin is one of those people who makes you feel better the minute you're around her. (Even if it's on Zoom.) Our very frank and honest conversation about anxiety and guilt surrounding COVID-19 covers the gamut of emotion; and as we sort of expected, Kristin somehow makes us feel better by changing our perspective ever so slightly. We hope it does the same for you! Stay safe, #BREEDERS! We love you all so so so much!

Thank you!! ** Well it took a global pandemic to get our #MTHRFKRS on the BOMpod, but we did it! This week we pour drinks, zoom it up, and have a family chat about what #quarantinelife has been like as couples, as dads, and as families, for the past three weeks. Chris (Shay's husband) and Jonny (Tracey's husband) talk about moving from an office to working from home, how it's going with the kids, what they expected vs our current reality, how it's been living with us (lol) and most importantly Chris let's us know what it's like shopping at Costco these days. We'll continue with these #QuarantineCheckIn episodes until it makes sense to talk about something else. We hope they're helping you feel a bit more normal about things, and we hope we're able to help you peek into other parents' struggles during this insane time.

LADIES LISTEN UP! If you've struggled with bad periods, hormonal rage, hormonal acne, hormonal anything, postpartum hormones, perimenopause, menopause, or anything related to your lady parts that's been driving you mad, please please listen to this amazing episode. We talk with senior yoga teacher (and mom!) Bridgette Shaw who embarked on a path to fix her hormones and drastically improve her quality of life through a very specific type of yoga practice called Hormone Yoga Therapy (HYT) Through learning and implementing this 30 minute practice every day, Bridgette was able to balance her horomones, improve her digestion, get rid of the rage that she carried daily and a host of other amazing recoveries. It definitely sounds too good to be true, but Bridgette has also studied and taught yoga since 1998, and amazingly even a yogini isn't immune to PMS and the rest. We hope you find this episode informative and most importantly - hopeful - if you're struggling yourself.

This episode is brought to you by our friends at Good Buy Gear: a full-service marketplace for buying and selling kid gear. They are redefining the secondhand market and making it super easy to get rid of OR BUY everything you need for a baby or kid at amazing prices.  Use the Code PUMPANDDUMP10 for $10 to shop on goodbuygear.com for first time orders — $50 minimum. or for $10 off first your pickup. **** Like literally everything in the world related to food/diet/wellness, Intuitive Eating is currently having a moment, and we were curious about what it actually means, and if it's actually as delightful as it sounds. To explain the whole philosophy behind intuitive eating, we sat down with Meredith Alvarez, mom of three, and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor (CIEC) and a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT) as well as a member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. Meredith explains why listening to your body can eventually lead you on a path of true nutrition, and why maybe Tracey should just eat the almond croissant. Like, all the time. Sound to good to be true? We thought the same, but came out of this conversation with a really expanded understanding of our (women, moms) relationship to food and health and how maybe we're all just over-thinking it a little bit. There is so much to digest (haha) here, that we decided to have Meredith on for two episodes so we can talk about intuitive eating from the adult perspective, and then discuss what that means for kiddos, picky eaters and family nutrition. Unfortunately, we had some technical difficulties with this interview and the sound quality is not so great. We recommend listening to this with your headphones on so you don't miss anything, and apologies for the sound. We loved this talk so much we decided to put it out there despite it's challenges, and we hope you find it equally informative even if it's slightly irritating.

Hormones, sleep deprivation, stress, diet and that ugly word 'aging' seem to magnify themselves on our faces with each passing year. So, we decided to have another skin care expert on the BOMpod to discuss what we can do to age gracefully. Trina Renae is an experienced aestetician who founded the renowned Spa Lé La in Los Angeles which features nourishing, healing skin care modalities with a special focus on moms. As in...they have FREE CHILDCARE AT THE SPA! Trina (a mom, obvi) lays it all out for us while we desperately try to understand what skin care products really do, and how we should use them.  Here's some points of discussion: A proper nighttime routine (yes, you need one) Why we need antioxidants What's a serum and what should be in it?

Ok BOMers, buckle up. We're gonna talk Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency and what the $%&$%&@* it all means. Because we want to be really clear here: we have no idea what it all means. But we're definitely curious. Aren't you? We pulled in Rachael Horwitz, Silicon Valley veteran, and VP of Communications at Coinbase (and mom!) to help us understand the take-the-red-pill brain-exploding theory about how and why cryptocurrency exists, and where she believes it's going. Rachael has one super awesome take on the whole thing: she truly believes that women - especially moms - should educate themselves in all areas of finance so we can make our own informed decisions and empower ourselves financially. We can get behind that for sure! So put on your smart girl hat and join us for an intro on crypto and maybe this will lead a few of us down an exciting new path. Let us know if it does!

It's no secret that unless you're like, Chrissy Teigan, your personal style does a dramatic 360 after having kids. Not only do our bodies change, but more importantly our priorities change...whether it's our time, money, energy, or just the realization that all those flowy tops that need dry cleaning can basically never be worn again around kids. But should we really just let our style go? Is it selfish? Is it realistic? Can a mom treat herself to some clothes she feels great in (and can afford) without feeling guilty or vain? It's complicated to say the least. We hash through clothes, our closet, and what "personal style" really means with Personal Wardrobe Stylist and founder of Stylish Sparrow (and mom), Lisa Sharpe who magically gets to the core of both our insecurities and clarifies a lot about why maybe we don't need to live in yoga pants for the rest of our days. This is *not* an episode about how we all need to shop at high-end New York City boutiques with a paid stylist, but more of an emotional (and a little woo) dive into the how and why of women - especially moms - wearing clothes.

Manifesting is having a bit of a moment right now, and frankly, we're here for it...even if we're not totally sure what it means. :) Luckily, we know just the mom who can guide us through it, so we asked Sarah Zeren, Certified Professional Coach, Licensed Social Worker, Certified Addictions Counselor, Energy Leadership Master Practitioner (and also our very first podcast guest on our first episode, Please Stop Saying #SelfCare) to please explain manifestation and what it means and why we should do it. If you're thinking this episode is a little woo woo, you're not totally wrong. But, BUT! You'll be amazed at what you'll learn about psychology, neuroplasticity, the brain and energetics, and how we can harness these things to get our lives on the paths we dream of. Sarah is the kindest, chillest, loveliest most positive and down to earth life coach you could ever hope to find, and her frank, no-nonsense answers to all our questions just might have you holding out your hands to the universe ready to take on the world.

We've all heard of midwives, home births, water births and birthing centers, but how much do we really know about these options for moms? For us, apparently we know very little, which is why our conversation with Courtney Hasson, Certified Nurse Midwife at The Birth Center of Boulder was so eye-opening. For example, did you know midwives can perform all aspects of female reproductive health from puberty through menopause? Courtney's calm, open-minded, caring passion for women offered us a ton new insight and knowledge about how and why someone might want to take the birth center route for their birth plan. Even if you're done having kids, this conversation is eye-opening. And, if you're still wondering what plan is right for you, have a listen and learn some amazing facts about midwives!

Finding time for anything when you're a mom is difficult, and fitness is no exception. Let's face it, most of us would prefer to never work out, but the hard truth is our bodies need - and deserve - exercise. We feel better, we sleep better, we're less stressed and we are healthier for our kiddos when we move our bodies. But man, finding the time and finding that fitness thing we enjoy to do really sucks. In this episode we sit down with personal trainer and fitness expert (and single mom of two) Taryn Atlas to discuss all things fitness and why she thinks it's really important to do something...anything that involves moving our bodies...and also why she's in love with squats. Taryn has been studying and practicing health and fitness since her college days and her loving, holistic approach to exercise for women might just be the motivation you need. This is NOT about getting skinny. This is about staying strong and healthy, and Taryn walks us through all types of modalities and ideas to do just that. We grill her on all the latest fitness trends, talk classes and fancy micro-gyms, how we can work out at home on the cheap, and we go deep into whether or not Tracey should get a Peloton. And we talk about squats. Don't be scared off by the subject of this episode. Whether you're already active daily or need a gentle nudge in the exercise direction, this Band of Mothers discussion is for you. If you're interesting in following Taryn: Join her Facebook Group, Shakti Rising Follow her on insta Enjoy! And let us know what you do to stay healthy!

Ever wanted to know what it's like to live in a tiny house? One word: Humanure. Ever wanted to know WHO lives in a tiny house? Three words: This Family Of Six. SIX PEOPLE YOU GUYS!! But, there's more! We sit down with Katrina Christensen, mother to three (with one on the way so ok maybe a family of 5.5 at the moment) doula, home schooler, and wait for it - - United Airlines baggage handler - - to talk about living in a tiny house with all. those. people. Somehow, with Katrina, it all makes perfect sense and her chill approach to minimalist living plus her majorly convincing reasons to work for UA part time (free tickets people, lots of them) all seem to work together to make tiny house living a serious consideration. (Moms looking for a side hustle with great benefits...listen to this episode!) Katrina walks us through how they built their adorable home, what it's like for so many people to share one very ingeniously designed bathroom and why they chose a house on wheels. Also we grill her about sex in a tiny loft, obviously. To take a video tour of Katrina's home here Follow along with her on Instagram for pics of her home and cute family and snakes EPISODE SPONSORThanks so much to Sarah Wells Bags for their sponsorship of this episode!

This is a parenting episode for everyone. While we've never ever wanted to be the hosts who tell you how to parent (because we clearly don't know what we're doing) we couldn't resist having an expert like Robin come chat with us. The truth is that while we're all doing the best we can, it's possible to be doing quite a few things dead wrong. We talk about resiliency, grit, letting our kids fail, and how those empty compliments we gush to our kiddos may be doing more harm than good. Don't worry, this isn't a shame on you episode. Robin is the coolest, and funny and shoots from the hip. We hope you enjoy a fresh perspective from someone who has seen a lot of sh*t. We sure did! Robin Glenn is the Co-Founder and CEO of BASE Education, an online prevention and intervention program that addresses the ‘Whole Child’. Her previous positions include At-Risk Student Specialist, private practice therapist for adolescents and their families, Treatment Coordinator for intensive in/outpatient teen programs, and Research Specialist in clinical trials for adolescents with addictions. Robin continues to train law enforcement, school administrators and faculty, and medical professionals, on issues pertaining to at-risk youth. Her experiences drew her to Social Emotional Learning, and continue to fuel her passion of wellness and innovation. Ms. Glenn earned her MA in Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology, and School Counseling from the University of Colorado, Denver. She is a licensed professional counselor, certified school counselor, and a master addiction counselor. Let us know your thoughts, and enjoy! How have you been enjoying our podcast?

What does it mean to be creative? Do YOU think you're creative, or do you consider yourself to do creative things? Most of us, at some point, probably pursued something that fills our souls in the creative world...maybe we were good at it...maybe we weren't...but have you stuck to it? Have you ever given yourself permission to use that small creative side of yourself without agenda or judgement or expectation of perfection? And how do we define "creative" pursuits? It may be a broader spectrum than you think! In this episode we talk to Julie Scarlata, mom, and founder of Lalu and co-founder of The Wonder Co., about how we can cultivate creativity in our kiddos without having to sit down with them and do a $65 craft project that we hate. More importantly, we talk about what it means to be creative as adult women - who are also moms - and why we need to let go of perfection. (Tip: we're being WAY too hard on ourselves in that dept.) Snuggle up, and let yourself lean into this one. You know we hate #selfcare - but is it possible using our brains in a way that stretches our imagination could lead us to a bit more personal freedom and happiness? And also, have we been overthinking "creativity" to the point where we do nothing? Let us know your thoughts, and enjoy! How have you been enjoying our podcast?

Put on your headphones, hide your children, buckle up and prepare yourselves for the tour de force that is Jill Bartlett and Amy Albert of #ThePumpAndDumpWestCoast + our intrepid director, Kristin Goodman. WARNING: We recorded this episode after an intense two weeks of rehearsal (and an even more intense 3 months for Tracey and Shayna and four weeks for Kristin) and there was a cozy, breezy AirBnB in the Hollywood Hills, there was a group of very tired women, who were proud of their hard work and in love with each other, and there was tequila. What we're trying to say here, is that this is probably the most rowdy, inappropriate podcast we may ever record, so be warned that this episode isn't safe for work, or home with little ears listening, or possibly even safe for your dog. Just jokes. We get rowdy, but we get to know Jilly and Amy and there is a Brittany Spears impression you DO NOT want to miss.

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. Drop us a line, and let us know! How have you been enjoying our podcast?

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 Enjoy!

The realization - and the next 9 months that ensued - changed Lynn's life forever. As a mom, as a wife, a friend and as the woman she was destined to become. Lynn's book The Perfect Cupcake (think autobiography with an amazing dose of inspiration for moms everywhere) debuts very soon and we are so lucky to have her on P+D to tell her story. Enjoy!

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!

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.

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. How have you been enjoying our podcast?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 have you been enjoying our podcast?

Ok friends, we're diving into CBD, cannabis, THC, anxiety, inflammation, stress, addiction and lots of things in between. CBD is having a moment right now - BUT WHAT IS IT? What does it do?

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.

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! How have you been enjoying our podcast?

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.

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?

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.

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.

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. As always, we'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts.

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. She's an MD, an entrepreneur, a published author, a mother of three and she literally says plain yogurt on your face is a great mask. We can do that!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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: Local46 on Facebook Website As always, we'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts.

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."

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.

Sure we have gifts for our kids to buy, gifts for our partners, gifts for the in-laws and gifts for the teachers, but the best gifts? Girlfriend Gifts! They're so fun to give and even more fun to receive, and in this episode Shay and Tracey go through a few of their (totally random) favorite things they'd think any member of your #BandOfMothers would love. AANNNDDD.....the show ends with a #Mombush! Shay and Tracey surprise Special Guest and The Pump and Dump Show's Director of Operations (and resident #sadcake maker) Kate Burgess with something special. Make sure you stick around for the reveal! HAPPY HANUKAH, MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS! 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.

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! As always, we'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts.

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.

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.

What REALLY goes on behind the closed doors of our homes? Is someone REALLY washing the baseboards? Is someone else having popcorn for dinner? WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS' CLOSETS REALLY LOOK LIKE? We pull back our Target curtains to tell the truth about our own domestic lives, and then we host a round table with two other moms to discuss the truth of our day to day housekeeping regimen.

We've both owned other businesses before we started The Pump and Dump Show, and we discuss the long circuitious road we each took that lead us to our jobs today as the creators, writers, producers and performers of The P&D. We've also struggled to run The Pump and Dump show while also raising a family. Big time. In this episode we discuss the ups and downs of being a mom who owns her own business, and how running a biz is different once you become a mom. We chat with mom and owner (and ray of sunshine) of Sarah O Jewelry, Sarah Ortega about how she gets it all done, what keeps her up at night, and how she got started in the first place. Then we play a game with her to test her limits of just how bad she wants success. To be honest, we could have talked for hours on this topic...especially when you hear our #sadcake tale at the end about what happened in Chicago; so maybe we'll dig deeper in a later episode.  But for this episode, we want you to know that being an entrepreneur is a complex, crazy and definitely rewarding life (when it's all going well) which also kind of the same feeling as being a mom. Do you agree? And last, a big snuggly ball of major love to our friends at Fit4Mom in Chicago for our mistake with your slide at the show. We love you (and all our Fit4Mom friends) and we're sorry the tech gods were out to get us before the show. If you're a mom in the area looking for a community - a true Band of Mothers - look no further than your local Fit4Mom chapter. Yes, they exercise, but it's so so so much more.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! This is an urgent - maybe bonus? - second episode we had to make because we watched A Star Is Born and we NEED to talk about it. DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET. WE WILL RUIN IT FOR YOU. We think this movie made a lot of moms go out to see movies. Many of the moms we know went on actual dates with their husbands or partners; and a lot of moms went by themselves, which frankly is even better. We loved this movie SO HARD. To be honest, we loved this movie even before it came out, and it got us thinking...when was the last time we all felt that way about a movie? WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME WE WENT TO A MOVIE? Like a real movie, for adults, with no kids involved...and it was EVERYTHING? Isn't it fun to feel like a kid again? If you're still swooning and crying over the magic that is Bradley Cooper's greatest achievement, and if you're loving the fact that you're now a die hard Lady Gaga Monster for life, this episode is for you. We interview our publicist, friend and mom of two littles, Laurie Coghlan, about how and why she saw the show; and then we interview former Deputy Editor of People Magazine and pop culture expert + doting dad of 2 year old twins, Peter Castro on his thoughts. Also Shay sings "Shallow" a lot. It's necessary. Are you as obsessed as we are? Did this movie make you giddy again like back in the good old days? Do you hate Bradley's greasy hair but think he's hella hot anyway? We want to know.

We've been having an ongoing dialogue for a few months now about how the hashtag #selfcare tends to get under our skin. It's not that we don't believe in taking care of ourselves, it's just that we wonder if it all has to be posted on social? And maybe it's all just getting a little too out of control? Baths with organic flowers, crystals, oils and three different kinds of salt? Is this realistic? Are we alone in feeling this way? We dive into why the whole self care movement bothers us so much, and explore what it really means to take care of yourself when you're a woman, but also a mom who rarely gets to poop with the door closed. For some perspective we interview our uber positive and refreshingly straightforward friend, Sarah Zeren who is an in-demand coach and counselor and helps people become the best version of themselves (and maybe she helps us change our attitudes.) And then we interview Tracey's mom on what it was like when she was at home with kids 40 years ago (sorry about the weird audio, we're learning over here.) If you'd like personal insight from Sarah, you can find her here at http://sarahzeren.com/ We'd love to hear your thoughts as well!
