The Big Boo Cast, Episode 210

This week Melanie and I dig into some areas of personal dysfunction – practical things in our lives where we have largely operated as if we had no choice but to participate in poorly functioning systems (that sounds really serious, but I can assure that our discussion is not). We also spend some time celebrating the #5 Texas A&M Fightin’ Aggies before we jump into the main focus of this episode: our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide, this week with gift ideas for teenage girls and guys.

All that to say: it’s links aplenty in this week’s show notes, and we hope that some of our gift suggestions will make your life a little easier this year. Next week we’ll talk through our gift ideas for women and men, so GIDDY UP, everybody.

Hope y’all enjoy!
