The Big Boo Cast, Episode 241

I DON’T KNOW IF YOU HAVE HEARD, but Mississippi State won the college baseball National Championship last week in Omaha, so Melanie and I talk just a *little* *bit* about that on this week’s episode. We also discuss the fact that lo, the Olympics are almost upon us, which means that Melanie will be living her best life as she learns about all the Meaningful Life Stories and cheers for athletes from all around the world. Let’s be honest: watching the Olympics is pretty much a Shankle-tacular.

In addition to the sports news, we share about what we’re reading and talk a little more about a show we’ve both recently watched and loved. Plus, it’s my turn for Five Favorites, and we have some exciting news about our Amazon shop. Or maybe “exciting” is a stretch. But nonetheless, we have news.

Hope y’all enjoy!
