The Big Boo Cast, Episode 171

We may not have watched the Oscars this year, but that doesn’t stop us from having big opinions about 1) the dresses and 2) the current relationship status of Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak. In this episode we discuss both topics in great detail. We also talk about the fact that college baseball starts this weekend (!!!), and I dig into my thoughts about the State / A&M women’s basketball game this past Sunday (here’s a hint: both teams were fantastic).

It will not surprise you to learn that Melanie shares some beauty product updates (she is breathing, after all), and she has also discovered a new serum she can’t wait to try. Her skin care persistence is both inspiring and admirable.

Enjoy, y’all.
