The Big Boo Cast, Episode 83


It’s been an exciting few days here at The Big Boo Cast because Melanie’s fantastic new book, Church of the Small Things, released this past Tuesday. Yay, Melanie! Yay, everyone who gets to read it!

So you might not believe it, but in this particular episode we actually stick with a theme and talk about some of our very favorite small things. I went sort of sentimental and nostalgic with my list, and Melanie went sort of practical with hers, and the result is that somewhere in the overlap of our lists, we talked about some topics that we adore (specifically: comfy clothes, our latest obsessions, the best parts of friendship, and exciting new snack options). 

(I trust you’ll appreciate the irony of me talking at the beginning of the podcast about how I’m thinking about going dairy free – and then at the end of the podcast being BESIDE MYSELF when I talk about homemade jelly served over a block of cream cheese.)

(Baby steps.)

We had the best time recording our very special Church of the Small Things episode – hope you enjoy it!

    I have to say one of the things that brings me joy is listening to yalls podcast. I feel like I am on the phone with my sisters. I always laugh and usually buy something so thanks for that.

  2. Have to tell you a story that has delighted me to no end today. I heard Melanie recommend a snack and immediately googled it on my phone… except I googled “summer salts snacks”. Thankfully my phone knows more than me and took me straight to “somersaults”. Made my Friday! :)

    I am very sad that in Canada these somersaults cost $145.43 on Amazon… even with exchange I feel that is steep… :)
