Bethany and MK explore the new frontier of schooling in a pandemic. MK has taken the plunge, given up her former life as a Zoom butler, and joined Bethany’s homeschool cult, delighting no one more than Bethany. They’re on their inaugural field trip with 6 kids! Just like everything in 2020, this is fine, everything is fine.

Mary Katharine Ham and Lyndsey Fifield are NOT ready for fall. How can we make the best of these last summer days? Let’s chat about it!

Elisha and MK talk about how to have adventures during COVID (the perfect time to go on vacation). They’ve flown on planes (even with lots of kids in tow), road tripped, and maybe even been to a theme park! They’ve tried it first so they can bring you all the tips! (Just constantly eat and drink on airplanes, basically.)

Kelly and MK discuss Kelly’s jump into the deep end of farm-to-table living off her own farm. Her challenge to live off the fruits of her labor and her land (documented @realbestlife on all social media!) for an entire year began Aug 1, and there has been fun and pain and great recipes and cute animal videos already! Let’s get into her feels during this giant adjustment, and feel good about the fact that all of us can still drink coffee!

Emily and Mary Katharine talk break-ups—coping with them, coming back from them, getting your girlfriends to keep you from being crazy through them. They turn over some emotional stones, take us back in time to high school, where they listened to Jewel and Alanis and did really embarrassing things. There was a lot of cringing. Enjoy!

On this latest episode with special guest Mary Katharine Ham subbing in for JVL, we discuss Showgirls and the documentary You Don’t Nomi. We kid you not. Sonny recalls dancing to the ice cream truck. Mary Katharine faked playing Ms. Pac-Man. And Vic has loads of transitions. Plus Saved by the Bell rankings!

Mary Katharine Ham and Elisha Krauss are ready for post-pandemic life… but maybe we’ve all gotten a little too comfortable during lock down? Here’s how to tighten back up… but maybe we can all agree to leave heels and bras in the pre-pandemic world?

Do you dread video conferences? Elisha Krauss and Mary Katharine Ham are here to help you get your Zoom game on point—with practical tips, make-up recs, horror stories… and one will share how a fake eyelash almost ruined one of the most important moments of her life. Buckle up!

It’s usually impossible to get all the ladybrains in one place at one time—but thanks to the power of Zoom (and state mandated stay-at-home orders) all the brains were able to enjoy a fun night with a huge squad of listeners—getting to know a lot about YOU and definitely having a great time. On this week’s episode we’re bringing you along for the fun! We are definitely making this a regular event… maybe even after the pandemic passes!

When the pandemic shut downs started across the country nobody knew what to expect—but we made some PRETTY bold predictions. Mary Katharine Ham and Lyndsey Fifield revisit the goals they set a few months ago to see just how wrong (and right!) they were.

No stranger to prepping and farming, Kelly Maher announced her plan to live 365 days on only food grown on farms. How the heck is she going to do that? She lays it out in this hilarious episode with Mary Katharine Ham. And please subscribe to Kelly’s YouTube channel for goat videos!

When we look back on how we handled this crisis, will we be proud of ourselves? If you’re starting to sink deeper into a spot on the couch, listen up as Mary Katharine Ham and Bethany Mandel lay out how they survive (and, frankly, thrive) in chaos—and you can too.

Mary Katharine Ham and Lyndsey Fifield are in it together… a healthy distance apart. Tuck into this uplifting episode to learn how different personalities are handling all this social isolation, how they’re setting a “routine” in a world gone mad… and what we can all learn about ourselves. Mostly that cardio is essential.

Buying a house can be a terrifying prospect to the uninitiated but veteran home owner Mary Katharine Ham puts N00b Lyndsey Fifield’s mind at ease with a quick and dirty rundown of everything first time homeowners need to know—from surviving the cash-poor days following closing to what you should not forget during a home inspection. Buckle up Becky—it’s going to be great.

It’s been three years since the ladybrains podcast started—and um… a lot has changed! Bethany Mandel and Mary Katharine Ham are here to reminisce and try to count how many kids we’ve all had since then (this was hard). We also review our bad Meghan Markle opinions (Lyndsey was right) and more. Join us for some water under the pirate ship!

Natasha Simons, chief A Christmas Prince correspondent for A Christmas Ham, is back to review the third installment of the A Christmas Prince saga from Netflix . We can’t remember any of the characters’ names, but they’re having a baby and that’s great. Merry Christmas!

Technical note: We sincerely apologize for some sound quality issues (slight echo at times) that occurred while recording this episode.

It’s Christmas in Zambia with Mary Katharine Ham and Lyndsey Fifield as they review the new Netflix movie, Holiday in the Wild, starring Rob Lowe and Kristin Davis. Lyndsey is the chief Zambia Correspondent for A Christmas Ham, having gotten married there just a few short months ago to a hunky man with dreamy eyes (whose name is not Rob Lowe).

A real-deal movie critic joins us on “A Christmas Ham” this week to talk about the history and hypnotic effect of cheesy TV Christmas movies. Also, we somehow touch on the opioid crisis. I didn’t even know there was a dark side to my movie obsession until I talked to John!

Follow along as Lyndsey Fifield and Mary Katharine Ham make a series of miscalculations and inadvisable decisions, avert near disaster and bodily injury—and VERY luckily come across only-nice people who help them… and ironically discuss cohabitation boundaries (while definitely overstepping Lyndsey’s husband’s) in the name of getting him a cool gift that is very far away… and very heavy.
