The Holderness Family

Welcome to the Holderness Family Podcast! On Facebook and YouTube we are known as The Holderness Family. We make those silly songs and skits with our kids, but on this podcast, it's just us... the real us. The non-Christmas-jammies-us, the why-can't-my-socks-be-on-the-kitchen-counter-us (Penn) the why-do-I-have-to-go-outside-and-talk-to-people-us (Kim).On this podcast, we will share the real-life ups and downs of living together, working together, raising kids together, in what we hope is a funny and entertaining way. We will be taking questions that we are likely unqualified to answer (absolutely unqualified to answer) but we are hoping that the show will make all of your beautiful families realize you're not alone. You're not alone. We are all a hot mess... a HolderMess. The HolderMess: the Holderness Family PodcastThank you for subscribing and listening!Hosted by Kim & Penn HoldernessProduced by Max Trujillo

Remembering Penn’s Dad
Yesterday
Remembering Penn’s Dad
If you met Penn's Dad, you’d know where Penn gets his personality from. He was an absolute legend. He lit up every room he walked into, dedicated his life to his community, and founded local charities to help those in need. Haywood Holderness passed away earlier this month. There’s been a lot of ‘laughter through tears’ at our house remembering him. About 10 years ago, he wrote out specific instructions about everything he wanted when he passed. This week on the podcast, we remember Penn’s Dad and talk about the lessons learned from having a parent pass away, including making your wishes known. (Also to ensure we don’t bum you out too much, I ended the podcast telling my best ‘Mom Jokes’ to Penn.) Hug those you love, tomorrow is never promised. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929. Your support means the world to us. If you like this podcast please consider leaving us a review. We also love feedback.

: Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles Holderness create original music, parodies, and Vlogs for YouTube and Facebook to poke fun of themselves and celebrate the absurdity in circumstances most families face in their day to day life. They published "Christmas Jammies" in December 2013 and life hasn't been the same. Since then, their popular parodies, "All About That Baste", "Baby Got Class," and original music "Snow Day" have received national news coverage.

Parenting Expectations vs. Reality with Dr. Hope Seidel

Parenting Expectations vs. Reality with Dr. Hope Seidel
In the months leading up to the birth of Lola, Penn was really nervous about becoming a Dad. We didn’t have practice with other kids. We never even had a dog. So we decided to get a fish, as if that would somehow help us prepare to become parents. Needless to say, that fish died within 2 weeks. What a way to start our parenting journey.On today’s podcast, we called our friend, pediatrician and parenting coach, Dr. Hope Seidel, to talk about the expectations vs reality of raising kids. Dr. Seidel said that one of the biggest things she has learned is that a child’s wellness depends on the wellness of their parents. Let that sink in, parents. Your wellness MATTERS. Listen for more advice from Dr. Seidel, and the surprising answer to which role Penn would love to play in Hamilton.  Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929.

What The Heck Is Crypto? with Matthew Diemer

What The Heck Is Crypto? with Matthew Diemer
Remember the viral clip of the news reporters who found out about the internet for the first time? (Just what is this "information super highway?" And yes, that is a direct quote.) That is how I feel people will look at this podcast in 10 years when digital currency is all we use. Today we discuss just what the heck is cryptocurrency, the blockchain, and NFTs... and boy, do we have questions. Penn and I make silly internet videos for a living, so let's be clear, you should not take any financial advice from us or this podcast. However, if you would like digital currency explained to you like you're a preschooler (in a good way!) our expert guest Matthew Diemer from the podcast, Decrypt Daily, can help. Stick around for some fun segments afterwards too!Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929. Your support means the world to us.

Calling Senators & Making You Smile

Calling Senators & Making You Smile
We know people come to our channels to laugh and escape, but the things happening in our world right now are not a laughing matter. So we decided to do this week’s podcast episode in two parts. We started by calling our senator. Currently, there are two gun control bills that have been stalled in the Senate. I know the idea of calling into a political office can be a terrifying (as an introvert even calling to order Chinese food can stress me out.) I hope listening to me call my senator shows that it is extremely easy…but above all, incredibly impactful if you chose to do so.We end our podcast by doing what we do best... trying to make you smile. Even though life is heavy, we believe laughter is one of the best medicines. Penn shares his favorite dad jokes, some great “would you rather” questions, and our honest review of the new Top Gun movie. Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929.

Wait, Do We All Have ADHD? with Dr. Marcy Caldwell

Wait, Do We All Have ADHD? with Dr. Marcy Caldwell
This week called our friend, Dr. Marcy Caldwell, to ask her the Question of the Day: How many adults, specifically women, are going undiagnosed with ADHD? As always, Dr. Caldwell had some great insight for us on what it’s like for an adult to have ADHD and why it can be so difficult to diagnose especially in adult women.We also learned that the expectations of modern life can overtax any neurotypical brain, which looks like an ADHD brain under stress. Does this mean we all have ADHD? Later on, we talk about how I love the idea of living out of an RV. (Notice I said, the “idea” of an RV.) But I don’t think we could actually pull it off. For one thing, Penn is a pretty big person that needs a lot of space. Even his shoes are big... where would he put his shoes in an RV?Listen to hear more about adult ADHD from Dr. Caldwell, our travel adventures, and about our favorite item of the week. (Spoiler: it’s our friend Taylor’s new book, A Dude's Guide to Baby Size: What to Expect and How to Prep for Dads-to-Be). Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

Life Goals in 2022

Life Goals in 2022
When it comes to our marriage, I would definitely say I’m the big dreamer. I adore a 5-year plan and especially a color-coordinated vision board. But this week’s question gave me pause: “What are some big life goals you want to accomplish?” I think the last two years with the constant worry and fear of the pandemic, politics, and world news, I feel some goal-setting burnout. Don’t get me wrong, I still get really excited about being creative and the work we do every day. I’m just scared to verbalize big dreams that may not be able to come to fruition.Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

How To Get (and Stay) Organized with The Home Edit
Penn and I have learned to be understanding of how each other’s brains work. He gives me grace when I need to get things in order and I try my best to give him patience when I close the cabinet doors for the 5th time. On this week’s podcast, we interviewed the women who turned organizing in rainbow order into an entire brand. Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin are creators of The Home Edit and stars of the hit Netflix series, Get Organized with The Home Edit. THEY EVEN INSPIRED PENN TO GET ORGANIZED. (I know, I know.)

Helping ADHD Kids with Dr. Norrine Russell
As many of you know, we talk openly around here about mental health and the specific challenges we deal with in our own lives. We’ve written songs, podcasts, and blogs about these topics, and one of the most common questions we get from you guys about this is “how do I help my kid who struggles with these issues?” If you were following along last week, we introduced a new podcast format we are trying out with segments, so we took all of your feedback for our question of the week which is: “How do I help my disorganized kid get through the week?”  We phoned a friend, Dr. Norrine Russell, and asked her professional advice on this. Dr. Russell is an Executive Functioning & ADHD Coaching Expert who coaches kids at one of the largest international student coaching practices in the world. She is passionate about providing support to frustrated parents and their misunderstood children. Our hearts were both more calm after talking to Dr. Russell. She walked us through some great tips on how parents can better support children who think atypically. She also reminded us that we could be more chill.

Making More Joy

Making More Joy
Our podcast is our favorite thing we do. It’s like a built in day-date every week where we get to sit down and chat together for an hour. Sometimes we chat about serious topics between ourselves or other times we invite a special guest to teach us something. It really brings us a lot of joy. With the world continuing to be so serious, we’ve found ourselves seeking out things that bring us joy and levity. We want to look for the “extra” in the ordinary everyday. We thought maybe all of you out there might be feeling the same way, so we are testing out a new format on our podcast this week to hopefully create a little bit more joy to spread around. Please tell us what you think of our segments (and Penn's segments songs!)Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

We're In A Slump
I feel very fortunate to have had our careers and health for the past two years, but I have been in an emotional slump. I'm fighting mine by amping up my extrovert time (shocker I know) but I am determined to push past this slump. Penn has been in a recent slump with his tennis hobby. He realized he has been putting more emphasis on his athletic performance instead of just having fun.Penn and I discuss how to know when a hobby isn’t serving us in good ways. Also we discuss the first stop on my hobby hunting journey... Tai Chi! What ways do you overcome slumps?

Things We Used To Believe
Growing up there were the beliefs we hung our hats on before we were old enough to know better. Recently, I wrote a blog post about these past ideals (even ones that I've said to my own kids) that I'm trying to unravel now. We've all had missteps that have made us who we are today, but it's good to know when those idioms aren't serving us. You all came in HOT with some contributions to my list so we talk about yours too! Also... Penn explains lottery number science. So there's that.

Getting A Hobby & Going To Space

Getting A Hobby & Going To Space
My birthday was this past weekend, and it got me thinking about goal setting and aging. Usually, I am a very goal oriented person. However, with the world so out of sorts in the past two years, I haven’t really spent time thinking about achieving new things. Even though I'm in my mid-40’s, I still feel young. I also see many people in our lives getting older and I know I'm not (that) far behind. This week, I came up with a list of three ways to hopefully help me make the most of my life now and in the future. (Penn shares his own ultimate goal, which will come as no surprise.) So far, finding a new hobby is the most challenging goal on my list. I need some help, friends, what hobby ideas do you have for me?Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

Amazing Race Recap with Lulu & Lala (Bonus)
It goes without saying that The Amazing Race pushed me out of my comfort zone. Never in a million years would I go bungee jumping off the highest jump in Europe, or climb a thousand stairs, or EAT. MAGGOT. CHEESE. Also when, as a middle-aged parents living in North Carolina, would we have the chance to hang out with twin radio DJs from New Jersey? We wanted you to have the chance to meet Lulu and Lala on our podcast. We talk about their dynamic way of twin-speak, how they worked their way to the top of the radio world, and their fascinating dating life. We hope you love them as much as we do :) Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

What's Our Deal? (And More Questions)

What's Our Deal? (And More Questions)
Penn and I are recovering from a busy couple of weeks, so we wanted to go back to basics. We asked you to submit any and all questions to us. And let me tell you, you did NOT disappoint. Your questions led to some very interesting discussions about jam stands, hobby hunting, and optimal bedroom size. But the question that made us laugh the most was: "So, what's your deal?" We tried to answer that as honestly as possible, but most days I have no idea what my deal is. Tell us your deal and send us more questions to answer in the future!

Amazing Race Recap with Raquel & Cayla (Bonus)
While we are “getting back to normal” content in most ways, we will still want to spend some time and introduce you to some of the people we met along the way on our Amazing Race Journey. It’s strange to think about it now, but Cayla Platt and Raquel Moore were the very first people we met on the Race. We didn’t know it then, but almost two years after we met in that airport, we’d be going head to head in a battle to the very end. As much as we loved winning, our hearts broke that they didn’t.  Hear about everything, including the words they told us on the race course that I still use daily. You can watch our recap here.Thank you again for cheering us on every week. As we go into the final episodes, we can’t tell you how much your support has meant to us. Tell us your questions and we will try to answer them in these recaps next week!

Supporting A Partner With Anxiety

Supporting A Partner With Anxiety
In our years together, Penn has done an amazing job making me feel completely loved and accepted just the way I am - anxiety and all. And, in true Penn Holderness fashion, he’s not only learned to support me through my anxiety, but has pointed out positive parts of my anxiety that can actually be a benefit sometimes. Talking about anxiety is really HARD for someone with anxiety, but we put this out there because we really hope that someone can glean helpful information for themselves and/or their partner through our conversation. Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

Amazing Race Finale Recap (Bonus)
Did we just win The Amazing Race? This week on the podcast recap, we give you more behind-the-scenes about what things were like leading up to and winning the race. We also talk about being with our kids and the cast to watch the finale together. It was a moment we will remember for the rest of our lives.I can’t say enough about the producers and people behind the scenes at The Amazing Race. They had the seemingly impossible task of putting on a race during a pandemic and they kept us all safe. We are also thankful to everyone who stayed with our kids and kept our business running while we went off the grid… twice. But most importantly, we are grateful for the lifelong friends we made with the entire cast of Season 33. It’s a privilege to know them and be part of their lives. (We hope to keep these recaps going so you can hear from each of them!)You can watch our recap here. Thank you again for cheering us on every week.

Supporting A Partner With ADHD

Supporting A Partner With ADHD
If you’ve been following us here for a while, you know that we both openly talk about our mental health challenges. For Kim, it's anxiety and depression. For Penn, it's ADHD. We’ve written countless songs, skits, and blogs about these struggles. Most recently, Penn wrote a blog about how he processes his ADHD and turns it into his superpower especially through our time on The Amazing Race. Supporting each other's mental health has taken a lot of time and practice. Like sometimes your husband leaves his carry-on suitcase (the only piece of luggage he packed) in the airport and doesn't realize it until we've reached our final destination... not exactly the superpower version of ADHD. This week we talk about what it looks like in our relationship for us to support each other’s mental health. We are going to make this a multi-part series, and today we cover Penn’s ADHD: what that looks like for him, ways he has learned to manage his brain, and how Kim has learned to support him. Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929.Thank you for listening!
