The Big Boo Cast, Episode 224

It seems like it’s been forever since we last said these words, but college baseball season is here! On this episode we talk about opening weekend for the Aggies and the Bulldogs, and we also discuss our weekend outings to the State / Alabama women’s basketball game (me) and the San Antonio rodeo (Mel). Plus, Mel shares some ways we can all jump in and help Texans who are recovering from last week’s ice storm.

AND. This week we get to spend some time talking with author Elizabeth Passarella. I mentioned her new book, Good Apple, on the podcast a few weeks ago (you may remember that I loved it), and Melanie and I were so excited to get to visit with her. You’ll hear part of the conversation on this episode – the rest a few weeks down the road – and you are going to love her. Melanie and I had both talked to her for about three minutes when we realized that it felt like we’ve known her forever.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 223

This week we talk all about Melanie’s Winter Extravaganza (TM) in San Antonio, which leads to a discussion about potential winter meals and our preparation (or lack thereof) for winter weather snacks. I also chronicle my Marvel Movie Plan (also TM but not really), and you’ll be delighted (though not at all surprised) to hear me confuse the Captain America and Captain Marvel movies when I discuss what I’ve been watching. Bless my heart.

On top of all that, I share my Five Favorites this week, and next week – don’t miss it! – because Good Apple author Elizabeth Passarella will be with us.

Enjoy, y’all!
