The Big Boo Cast, Episode 365

This week Melanie and I discuss what we won’t be cooking for Thanksgiving (here’s a hint: TURKEY), as well as the latest with our respective football programs and their coaching searches. We also break down my recent experiences at a couple of concerts, and Melanie shares about some of her post-live show introverting.

There’s some delightful bonus content at the end of the episode (an excerpt from our recent Patreon episode with Cole Cubelic), and it’s Melanie’s turn for Five Favorites.

Hope you enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

  1. One of my favorites. Thanksgiving is the only day of the year I can live as a vegetarian.

  2. Thank you for your timely description of a turkey! I told my husband that this is the last time I’m cooking s turkey. I hate cooking it, I hate the leftovers, I hate the obligatory stock making with the bones, and I hate the taste of the stock. It’s all disgusting ????

    The book All the Light We Cannot See is AMAZING!!! Better, as always, than the movie, but the series did a great job. I highly recommend the book – one of my all time favorites, and I’ve read a lot of books!! Also, The Boys in the Boat is a terrific book. The movie starring George Clooney comes out Christmas Day. No way can the movie do all that the book did. Another all-time favorite of mine.

    This whole Cole Cubelic situation just tickles me pink for the 2 of you!! I feel like the hair clip incident is going to be your Chewbacca event (Candace Payne). Look what the Lord will do!!
