The Big Boo Cast, Episode 254

Since The Big Boo Bowl was this past weekend, we obviously have a few Mississippi State vs. A&M-specific things to discuss on this episode (spoiler alert: the game turned out to be an early birthday present for me). Melanie also offers her Side Eyes of the Week, along with a new segment that features the applause function on her little gadget that has primarily booed up until this point. It’s a joy.

We also talk about the Shankles’ new phones and how I thought for a split second that P needed to talk to me this past Saturday. Plus it’s Melanie’s turn for Five Favorites – always a delight.

Hope y’all enjoy!

  1. Did you ladies realize that ESPN is part owner of the Longhorn Network? Maybe that explains why game day shows up the Longhorns so often.

  2. ALSO,,, game day really blew it by not being in College Station last week and having Sophie and Melanie as guest pickers for the BigBoo bowl! sheesh who IS there scheduler???

    Congrats on a great win. I can hardly wait for this weeks podcast to hear all about it!!

  4. Such a fun podcast! Have y’all tried Frownies? I just saw an Instagramner mention them and it looks like something right up Melanie’s alley! I hope you’ve tried them and love them because I need something!!

    Checking OFTEN for this week’s (Oct 13) podcast. CANNOT WAIT to hear Melanie about the A&M/Bama game, if she survived all the excitement!! Baylor Bear here – and we are even happy Bama lost! Sophie, I’m sure you deserve some type of award for getting her through the game – just wondering HOW MANY TEXTS did it take?? In homage to your book “Get It Up, Sophie” – we are anxious to hear!!
