The Big Boo Cast, Episode 69


Well, it’s the first podcast of 2017 for Melanie and me, and our discussion seems to focus on several people that we really don’t know even a little bit: Mariah Carey (not to mention her affection for a bodysuit), Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Queen Elizabeth, and Meghan Markle, to name a few.

There is a considerable amount of La La Land-related raving / fangirling. We also spend a lot of time talking about television – one of our very favorite topics – and then we reflect a little bit on 2016 and look forward to an awesome 2017.

All in all, a good time was had by all. Or at least the two of us. And we certainly hope it’s a good time for you, too.

You can click here to listen. Or here. You can even listen right here on the blog.

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

    He was amazing on the Mickey Mouse Club! Watch it about 37 seconds in.

    I just put a little spoonful in my grits this morning!
