The Big Boo Cast, Episode 178

WELCOME TO APRIL, EVERYONE!

Oh, y’all. It was a March, wasn’t it? So first and foremost I just want to say that Melanie and I hope you’re well and the people you love are well. It may take us a little while to get to the other side of this thing, but I believe we’re all gonna love each other well and get through it. So hang in there.

On this episode we talk about what we’ve been doing during this past week of social distancing, and we also talk to one of our very favorite Twitter follows, Karen Howell. Here’s what you need to know about Karen: she is hilarious. Also, she and I grew up in Mississippi towns that are a couple of hours apart, so our accents are really similar, and I got super tickled when I was editing because I’ll tell you what does not fade as you get older: a Mississippi accent. :-)

Anyway, we hope this episode makes you laugh, and by the way, HANG IN THERE, all you mamas who are handling remote learning for your kids (and all you mamas who have been teaching your kids for years). We’re cheering you on!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 177

We weren’t planning to record an episode this week, but then we (the Hudsons) cancelled our Spring Break trip, and the country pretty much shut down, and suddenly that empty podcast calendar looked like a bit of an opportunity. SO. On this week’s episode Melanie and I are so happy to get to talk to our great friend Travis Cottrell, also known as FryDaddy here on the podcast. Travis is a worship leader, a gifted singer and songwriter, and the brother Melanie and I didn’t even know we were missing until around 2007. He also happens to be one of the funniest people we know.

It won’t be a surprise to listen and realize that our conversation is all over the place, but the up side of that is that we cover a lot of ground. We discuss what we’re cooking during the quarantine, share our favorite snacks (salty and sweet), and ponder whether or not we should be trying on our jeans every couple of days to make sure they still fit. We also talk about how we became friends and whether the three of us have ever thought about doing a live show together (short answer: yes ma’am). :-)

Hope y’all enjoy!
