The Big Boo Cast, Episode 18


So I think it’s accurate to say that Melanie and I have experienced perplexing technical difficulties every single time we’ve tried to record a podcast this past year.

Now granted, we’ve only tried to record a podcast approximately THREE WHOLE TIMES, but still.

This past Saturday, however, we finally got ‘er done. There are a few little technical ish-ahs that crop up throughout the podcast, but everything ironed itself out eventually. Except for the part towards the end where Mel got disconnected and I sat there for a few seconds saying “Hello? HELLO? HEL-LOOOOO?”

Oh, believe you me: it’s all just as top-notch and first-rate as it sounds.

But for the most part the technology cooperates, and we talk about the end of the school year, health and beauty concerns (including Mel’s new dry-brushing technique that positively mystifies me), summer TV offerings and, of course, our hair.

You can click here to listen. Or here. Or you can subscribe on iTunes, but that’s quite a commitment for a podcast that’s as reliably unreliable as ours.

Happy Monday, y’all.

Edited to add: Seeing the news out of Joplin, Missouri this morning is absolutely heartbreaking. I don’t even have words. But I am praying.

  1. I’m so glad you got one up! Will listen to it while I’m working today.

  2. AmandaG says:

    I too, am quite happy to have another Big Boo podcast.

  3. HOOOORAY!!! I’ve got several crafty things to do today and I am ridiculously excited that I now have a Big Boo Cast to listen to while I work.

  4. I jumped up and down with glee when I heard the introductory anthem :)

  5. This news officially makes today the best. Monday. ever.

  6. That was my first podcast.

    You two are precious and entirely to funny!
    Thanks for a magic monday experience ! :)

  7. It is so frusterating when you are trying to do something and the technical aspect gets in the way:) I am so technology challenged at times..LOL. Glad you were able to make your podcast. I will listen this evening:)

    Have a great Monday


  8. That was my first podcast too… Too fun! You ladies are precious & adorable:)

    Honestly, I do kinda wish that Big Mama would decide to homeschool! I feel like I’m leaning in that direction for my kiddos but the thought of actually homeschooling them scares me to death!

    And preach on about the getting tired of highlight maintenance, caring about what your body looks like on the outside but enjoying being blissfully unaware of what’s going on inside it, not being attracted to metrosexuals, and Lady Gaga’s artistic vision being lost on us!

    Oh, and I feel like I learned something really important today… I don’t watch much TV (that’s not geared toward preschoolers) so I’ve been thinking that Rachel Zoe was pronounced like Zo-ee. So glad I got that straightened out before I embarrassed myself!

  9. Delightful. Loved it. Can’t wait for the next one.

  10. It was a delight to listen to the two of you! You both sound every bit as precious as you write. Now, I must go buy some EverPure hair products, some Garnier WonderWave, and Amplify hair products. I may not even have time to watch Idol tomorrow night…

  11. Thanks so much for keeping me company this morning while I cleaned my house. I thoroughly enjoyed your aimless rambling, and I even learned a thing or two. Like Amber above, I also was mispronouncing Rachel Zoe’s name. That could have been so embarrassing. Also of note, I agreed with practically everything you said, which also makes the eavesdropping ever so much more fun. I also agree with Kelly in that the whole experience was simply delightful. :)
