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.
We’re sharing our worst self-care fails (waxing) and best successes (White Claw). Tuck into this hilarious episode with your favorite beverage of choice and let Emily and Kelly show you the light. Speaking of self-care, Kelly had a fever of 102 during this episode, but she loves you so much that she recorded it anyway. Show her some love in the comments below and on Twitter and Instagram! But the best get-well wish you can give is a review on Apple Podcasts.
You asked, we’re answering: Elisha Krauss and Lyndsey Fifield have tried every deep conditioning mask, vitamin supplement, and heatless-curl Youtube tutorial known to womankind. After some recent trauma to their tresses they’re sharing their top tips for keeping your mane healthy (at any length) and happy (but seriously why is hair so emotional?) no matter what your mama gave you.
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!
Homeschool moms and homeschoolers get asked A LOT of questions about home education—what curriculum is best, what resources do parents need, will kids get a good education? You slid into our DMs with your BEST questions and homeschool mom Bethany Mandel joined homeschooler Lyndsey Fifield to tackle the biggest questions. Hopefully this episode can serve as a resource for any parents considering their options—or anyone who just needs to learn more about this growing form of education.
This is a follow-up to our episode on homeschooling with Elisha Krauss and Lyndsey from January 2019.
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.
Mary Katharine Ham and Kelly Maher are constantly doing big things—opening farms, running marathons, raising children… but they also naturally procrastinate on things like… taxes and paperwork. How do they balance it out—and how have they overcome their hilariously-unproductive 20s? This joyous confessional episode will either motivate you… or make you feel like you really have your life together.
