The Big Boo Cast, Episode 212

On this episode we did a little spin on our weekly Five Favorites to spend some time focusing on gratitude. Yes, 2020 has been a train wreck, but it’s also given us all sorts of opportunities to be thankful for essential workers and college football and Phil Rosenthal, among other things.

And just in case we haven’t said it enough: we are extraordinarily thankful for all of you who make up our little podcast community. There’s no way to adequately express how much you have enriched our lives over the duration of the podcast – but maybe this year more than ever. Y’all are the best, and we love you.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! Enjoy episode 212!

– “The act of thanks-giving is holy protest against cynicism, covetousness, fatalism, entitlement, self-pity, joylessness, discontentment, self-sufficiency, greed, arrogance, and apathy.” – @dukekwondc

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 208

We recorded this episode when one of us (okay, it was me) was experiencing some significant sleep deprivation, but why let a little loopy-ness stop the podcast fun? We talk about an incredible meal we had in Pawhuska, a recent shampoo / conditioner … [Continue reading]
