The Big Boo Cast, Episode 182

It’s a big week in the life of our little podcast, primarily because on this particular episode Melanie commits to trying a recipe that will require her to deal with raw chicken.


We also talk about our latest quarantine-ish developments (that is to say: what we’ve watched on TV / pondered in the stillness of our hearts), and we share some Mother’s Day gift ideas. This might be helpful to you if 1) you have no idea what to buy your mom and/or mother-in-law or 2) you need to print out a list for your people, along with maybe a subtle note that HERE IS WHAT YOU TURKEYS CAN PURCHASE FOR ME IN ORDER TO SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION.

However you feel like you should address that is totally up to you.

Hope y’all enjoy!
