Shutting Down Social Media and Booze

Holderness Family Podcast

Welcome to our crazy. Last week, we created our version of Stoptember on the show in response to our recent family struggles. So, we are giving you an update on our coping habits and family, including a special appearance by Penn Charles. 

Checking in with Coping Habits

Penn overcame some challenges with his goals of reducing weekly alcohol intake. We talk about the temptations and how society puts such pressure on non-drinkers. For me, I’m still addicted to checking my phone, but it is part of my job, so I’m cutting myself some slack. The slow process of breaking my phone habits may become Stoptober as well.

Welcome Our Special Guest

Our favorite guest to date, Penn Charles, joins us on the show today. PC is 9 years old, is a writer and loves tennis. Oh, and he is our son. He answers some of your most commonly asked kid questions, such as, “Do you like to be in YouTube videos?” Penn Charles tells us all about his favorite videos, trips and how he really feels about his sister. You’ll also get a chance to see how PC inherited my gift for disclaimers.

We wrap up with a random discussion on flat-earthers. Penn really wants to join a discussion with people who believe the earth is flat. Maybe a Penn-led podcast coming soon?

As always, thanks for tuning in!

This portion of our website is all about our ongoing quest to be better at being married to each other.  The content is a little longer form than the usual videos, but it will still make you laugh - and hopefully it’ll make you think a little!

About Us
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
