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.

    About the Holderness Family
: 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. Penn, the Dad, took a chance and left his job as a news anchor to join his wife Kim, the Mom, at their video production and digital marketing company, Greenroom Communications, LLC. Lola and Penn Charles are always happy, respectful and eat all of their vegetables (that last sentence is a lie).

    The Back to School Decision

    Are you struggling with what to do about school this year? Us too. So we invited Dr. Hope Seidel onto the podcast to provide some advice.
    Dr. Seidel is a pediatrician at Cary Pediatrics in North Carolina, with a passion for coaching parents through parentingcoaches.com. She also hosts a podcast called Parenting in a Pandemic that I’ve found very helpful. How are you weighing the back to school decision at your house?

    What If 2020 Is Good For Us?

    What If 2020 Is Good For Us?

    Even though 2020 has been a dumpster fire, I want to remain positive and hopeful. A lot of success and progress comes out of tragedy. Maybe we needed this.

    Working on Being A Better Ally

    Working on Being A Better Ally

    On this episode, we sit down with Donald Thompson and Jackie Ferguson of The Diversity Movement to have a conversation about race and how to be better allies in the wake of George Floyd. Donald Thompson is a friend and CEO of WalkWest. He serves on boards for several organizations in the fields of technology, marketing, sports and entertainment and is a mentor for Black Founders Google for Entrepreneurs Exchange. Jackie Ferguson is Director, Multicultural Programming at WalkWest and lead course writer for Diversity: Beyond the Checkbox. You can learn more at https://thediversitymovement.com/. 
    The Diversity Movement has put together lots of resources, books for children, our offers and upcoming events that promote allyship and make us all stronger together. You can also purchase their module on Unconscious Bias for only $19 with 100% of the proceeds will go to North Carolina organizations that support, educate and empower underserved and marginalized communities in our fight for equality. Learn more: https://thediversitymovement.com/what-can-i-do/
    Here are some of the ways I discussed how I am starting to become a better ally on the podcast as well:
    1) Broaden your social media feed to more creators of color. Some Instagram users that I follow are @rachel.cargle, @theconsciouskid, @AustinChanning, and @LatashaMorrison.
    2) Google whether your local police department outfits all on-duty officers with body worn cameras and requires them to be turned on when answering a call. If they don’t, write to your city government and advocate for it.
    3) Read, learn, and get involved. You can get involved with Be The Bridge, Showing Up for Racial Justice, or Center for Racial Justice. I'm reading White Fragility and I'm Still Here about racial inequality. There are also good books for kids to begin the conversation: https://bookriot.com/2018/09/19/childrens-books-about-diversity/amp/

Good marriage and family advice

I love listening to your podcasts. They make me think and grow and inspire me to become a better partner and parent. You two are the perfect balance. Kim you are thoughtful and compassionate and Penn you are lighthearted and funny and you both share so much love together! Thank you for the quality discussions!

Much needed

Going through this crazy, insane world right now, you guys are a much needed calm in the storm. Thank you for being there for us.

IowaEmm ,

We could be friends 😊

I’ve watched your videos on FB over the last couple years and enjoyed them. A couple of your latest ones- the Hair bands quarantine one and the Watermelon Sugar school decisions one are hilarious and so relatable! My husband and I have watched and listened to them over and over. So good! I actually think you guys are fairly similar to my husband and I- except we have no musical talent 😂. I watch your videos and think- we could be friends! I’ve never been into podcasts much but we are on a 20 hr family road trip with our 4 crazy kids (9,7,4,2) and I downloaded a few to pass the time. I’ve enjoyed them a lot more than I thought I would! Thanks!
