The Big Boo Cast, Episode 118

Since Melanie and I went to Chicago last weekend, this episode seemed like a great opportunity to recap our trip. We talk about our unforeseen hotel challenges, our night at Hamilton, and our many, many laughs at The Popcast Live. We also discuss college football at great length – and ponder the dynamics of sliding into someone’s social media comments with your team’s slogan.

Also, you will not be surprised to know that Melanie has a LOT of thoughts about Aggie football in general and Jimbo Fisher in particular.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 117

Well, you will not be surprised to learn that we talk a great deal – A GREAT DEAL – about college football in this episode. There’s some accountability in terms of how one of us managed to go to Starkville this past weekend despite some seemingly overwhelming writing obligations, there’s all manner of optimism since the Aggies and the Bulldogs combined to score over 100 points in their first games, and then there’s the can’t-deny-it reality that the SEC West is NO JOKE in 2018.

We also discuss books and shows and our upcoming trip to Chicago. Which reminds me: we even tell you how to win two free tickets to The Popcast Live Show (this Saturday, September 8th), but HURRY – you have to leave a comment on our podcast Facebook page by 10AM central on Thursday, September 6th in order to be in the drawing. It would be so fun to see you in the Windy City!

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 116

As you (might) know, I'm working with a different computer these days, and somewhere in this new-to-me version of Garage Band (which is what I use to edit) I have changed myself to a setting that is likely called "DJ From The 1970s." Melanie sounds … [Continue reading]
