The Big Boo Cast, Episode 129

It’s our first episode of 2019, and in it we certainly enjoy our fair share of pontificating: about age, about Christmas traditions (CAREFUL IF YOUR SMALL CHILDREN ARE LISTENING), about Melanie’s exciting new ice option, and about the National Championship game.

We also talk about Melanie’s repeat viewing of Friday Night Lights, hear her reaction to Tidying Up, and dig into ALL MY MANY THOUGHTS about Surviving R. Kelly (seriously – if talking about trauma is difficult for you, you’ll want to skip this part of the episode). Finally, we come back around to some sunshine and break down a few of the reasons we loved (loved!) Mary Poppins Returns.

So. There’s some silly stuff. There’s some serious stuff. And there’s a whole lot of in between.

Hope you enjoy all of it – and happy 2019!

  1. I will turn 50 this year too, but I thought you were a year younger than me. I’m totally embracing it-taking a trip, planning a day off from work, possibly even a party. It’s going to be fine!

  2. I enjoyed this episode so much – the light stuff and the heavier stuff. Sophie’s analysis of “Surviving R. Kelly” was so thoughtful and well-stated.
