The Big Boo Cast, Episode 17


It’s been almost a year since Melanie and I recorded a podcast.


I would tell you how totally lame we are, but really, you know that already. We’re not so much for the “planning” or the “execution.” We tend to “procrastinate” and “study our pores” and “watch Bravo” instead of sticking to any sort of podcasting schedule.

Hopefully, though, we cover a wide enough range of topics on this podcast to make up for our inconsistency. We talk about Jessica Simpson’s new perfume, some favorite new beauty products, a trip we’re taking with our kids, our issues with the SunChips bag and, of course, our hair.

Also, for reasons I cannot explain, there are a couple of places in the podcast where Mel and I sound like Crazy Eddie and Johnny Fever with The Wacky Breakfast Crew on Hot 103.3 FM’s Morning Show. I tried my best to tone down the reverb, but please remember and never, ever forget: I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.

Our commitment to quality is inspiring, isn’t it?

You can click here to listen. Or here. Or you can subscribe on iTunes, but that’s probably too much trouble for a podcast that may or may not show up over the course of a calendar year.

Regardless, you have some options.

Thank you and have a lovely day.

  1. Oh my gosh, this is the funniest podcast I’ve ever heard! I’m just on “Fancy Nights” and I’m about to wet my pants.

    Oh my, did you just suggest “Jessica Simpson” as the name for her perfume? This is *not* going to get you on that board that names perfumes! :)

  2. Craig W says:

    This is a .m4a file, suitable for playback only on an iPod. Do you have an .mp3 I can play on another type of portable player? The one you recorded in May almost a year ago is MP3, so I know you can do it. :)

  3. I haven’t listened yet but I’m thinking your issue with the new Sun Chip’s bag is the same as mine. It is a LOUD bag! LOL And it’s quite annoying when someone reaches in to get chips with all the crinkling sounds – it sends me up the wall… LOL I know this makes me sound a little crazy. But I’m not a fan of the new bag for them. If they are worried about biodegradable then they should just put them in a paper bag. Can’t wait to listen to the Big Boo Cast – I’ve always enjoyed them.

  4. You guys crack me up. I obviously need some friends from the South because I could talk with both of you for hours.
    On the subject of Ellnet hairspray, I have used it for a while and love it! Target has a sample size if you want to try it.

  5. I totally just subscribed.

    Why have I not heard any of these before now!?!

    Also…coming to California in July for LPL???


  6. You all need to do that more often. love listening. Feels like I’m talking on the phone with you all:) Love your southern accents:)

  7. Yay! I’ve been wanting you two to do another podcast!

  8. It truly just started and i’m already dying! :)

  9. is it necessary for you to know me in order to get invited on the beach trip? cause y’all would be a blast to hang out with. (i’m from nebraska, so i don’t normally use that phrase, but i’m trying to get in with y’all so as to be on that trip).

    and the kids talking to each other were adorable.

    hilarious. felt a little bit like i’m eavesdropping, but thoroughly entertaining. i have a feeling that your beach trip will be nothing but fun!

  10. Can you see it??? I am smiling REALLY BIG! And there may have been a couple of bursts of HalleluYAH and happiness here in my little nook in the kitchen, as my Sydney sleeps!

    I cannot wait to listen!!

    Love you both very much! And am praying for you daily.

  11. “dark o’clock” is my new favorite way to tell time!

    Y’all are so funny. Have fun at the beach!

  12. Thank you and Melanie so much for putting this up! I’m from Tuscaloosa and we relocated to Small Town, Wyoming last fall for my husband’s job. Listening to the two of you was like being back home and hearing friends chat.

    And I think I will probably be laughing the first time I encounter “Fancy Nights” on one of our trips to the Big City.

  13. Thank you for the chatter…love it and I’m wishing you both a Fancy Night. I’d write more, but I’m headed to Walgreen’s beauty supply section…

  14. Thank you for the podcast! I am sitting here listening and needed a snack, nothing sounded good. I totally forgot I had olives from the grocery olive bar in the fridge. I just ate them all. :)

  15. I just had to tell you that I had to buy hairspray yesterday, and walmart had Elle net in a travel size. It was $6 which is still more than I normally spend (love my tresemme), but since its been loved in Europe for many years I had to try it! I’m hoping to look like a supermodel because of it today! Love, love, love you both and your podcast!
