The Big Boo Cast, Episode 215

This week I share a terrible (okay – not really terrible – just exasperating) thing that happened when I had to go to Walmart and Target on the same day, and Melanie analyzes the Aggies’ College Football Playoff chances. We also have a discussion about Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, only I call it Sierra Mist Cranberry Blast, and clearly I have reached a point in my life where I just make up my own names for familiar products. 

And as a public service to readers everywhere, Melanie makes some book suggestions that feature war / espionage as a backdrop for brave actions by gritty heroines, and I share my Five Favorites. Only I forgot to include the Five Favorites background music. I hope you can forgive me. 

Please do enjoy, everyone.
