Description

Hey there! We’re Caitlin and Jenny (she/her). We host the CK & GK Podcast, the show for adults who need a grownup. Our show is dedicated to helping adults learn what grownups need to know!!

We're based in Austin, Texas. We’re both married, we’re parents, we’re educators, and we're great friends who love to laugh. We love using our teaching skills to discuss topics that moms and parents want to know more about but feel too old or too weird or too clueless to ask about. Come learn with us!
