The Big Boo Cast, Episode 174

You may not have known it before now, but what you will realize after about fifteen minutes of this episode is that apparently it is Festivus, and Melanie and I have kicked it off with our annual Airing of the Grievances. From her missing book foreword to my feelings about an unexpected credit card charge to Mel’s preferred schedule for visits from the exterminator, we spend some time and also energy voicing our frustrations. 

Also, there’s a whole running discussion about the coronavirus. I remain fascinated by the information Melanie shares with all of us.

Finally, we have a lively discussion about sunglasses, and I even try to do a little shopping as we visit. Basically we’re just one step removed from our very first podcast episode when we read InStyle magazine together. Seems like old times, etc.

Hope y’all enjoy!

    Melanie, I think I heard you say Caroline uses DEVA spray. Please go to Jennifer Allwoods Instagram and read about her hair loss. Evidently, all sorts of people have been having terrible side effects from Deva. Just concerned.

  2. Sena Spofford says:

    I think the Gold Dust link is accidentally links to Kimberly’s Instagram.

  3. This episode made me remember the origin of “upper rib fat cancer”–which I have been saying for years but had forgotten where it came from!

  4. I laughed so much with you ladies in this podcast! Thank you for making a dreary day brighter!
