The Big Boo Cast, Episode 37

Well, I know that I’m in the middle of a big ole bloggy break, but Melanie and I have been wanting to record a podcast, and the day before our friend Annie’s new book comes out seemed like a fine and wonderful time (Annie book releases July 15th; Mel and I are super excited for her).

Here’s the cover of Annie’s book. I love it a lot.

Annie and I have a delightful chat about 10 minutes into the podcast. Melanie was supposed to be part of that, but unfortunately we (and by “we,” I mean “I”) could not figure out how to record the three of us at once now that I’m using different software than I did back in the days of FryDaddy.

SO – Mel and I talked a little, then Annie and I talked, then Mel and I talked a bunch more. We extensively examined the beach house vs. lake house debate, our favorite summertime foods, the perils of trying to have grown-up conversations when kids are listening, and, of course, our dogs.

Also, please excuse the awkward sound effect transition that I used at the beginning and the end of the part with Annie. Just know that I did the best I could with an impromptu back-up plan and very limited technical skills.

If I can ever finish this book, I may need to consider signing up to take some sort of online podcasting seminar. I feel like that would be good for all of us.


You can click here to listen. Or here. You can even listen right here.

Or, as always, you can subscribe on iTunes if you’re feeling particularly fancy.

Hope y’all enjoy!

    This is the first blog-cast I have listen to, and I just wanted you know how much I enjoyed it. Just like sitting at the kitchen table gabbing over a cup of coffee. Sophie, you remind me so much of my most favorite aunt (even though, I am much older than you), and I miss her everyday. She was southern, down to earth, and could keep you laughing all day long. Seeing the funny side of things sure makes life seem easier. And, as a Christian, I find that sometimes people don’t expect that we (Christians) have a sense of humor, but boy do we know how to laugh, love, and live. And everyday is better with a good laugh!

    Thanks so much for the podcast, ladies! Don’t ever think you’re boring us. I enjoyed hearing about the process you go through before you write. I can understand that it takes some time to get in the right mindset to put your thoughts on paper (well, on the computer screen!) I’m thankful for your and Melanie’s blogs and these podcasts. I always enjoy them.

  3. Just received Annie’s book in the mail today – yea! Thanks for posting the podcast – love listening to you guys (believe it or not).

    Can’t wait to meet you both in North Carolina in November.
