The Big Boo Cast, Episode 140

Well, we start off as Mamaw and MeMaw this week, here to tell you all about our failing eyesight, but eventually we return to some of our favorite topics: kids’ activities, college baseball (at the time we recorded Mississippi State and A&M were about to play a weekend series), and the most wonderful sporting event of the year, the SEC Baseball Tournament.

We also talk about why we’ve avoided any sort of discussion about the current state of the Royal Family (stay tuned for a discussion about preciouslittleangel Archie sometime next week). Finally, we dig into whether Taylor Swift was inspired by Beyonce’ or if she borrowed from Beyonce’ – and then we go on and on about our very favorite sunscreen.

So you might say that we cover some content bases.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 139

We kick off this episode talking about pillows (yes. pillows.), then hear about Melanie and P’s recent weekend of attending polo matches. AS YOU DO. 

We also talk about one of my favorite nights of watching lacrosse and speculate about what it might be like when our kids graduate and we don’t have the sports any more. Our conclusion is that we need to prepare ourselves for all the sadness.

Finally, we talk to our friend Lincee Ray about her new book that comes out April 30th – and we spend a significant amount of time talking about the ways we used to fold our notes in high school. It’s a lost art, everyone. 

Hope you enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 138

A few days ago we asked the good people of Instagram if anyone had questions for us. And as it turned out, there were questions APLENTY. We spend the bulk of this episode digging into six or seven of those questions, which means we dig into the story of how we met, the reason only one of us records our ads, and the restaurants we love the mostest in Birmingham and San Antonio (also known as the cities where we live).

We also talk about what Melanie means (exactly) when she references “the ranch,” and we tackle the question we get asked almost more than any other (besides how we met): what about that one-child situation? We laugh a lot, we answer lo, even more questions, and we recap (well, Mel does, at least) the latest with Britney Spears. Just as you might expect.

As always, please do enjoy.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 137

Well, we didn’t plan it, but on this episode we break down the Enneagram dynamics of our respective families, and OH, ARE WE EVER A STUDY. We also talk about the impressive amount of media we’ve consumed (no need to judge, everyone) as well as an exciting retail discovery that could very well CHANGE OUR WHOLE LIVES.

NOT TO BE OVERLY DRAMATIC.

On top of all that, we discuss the music we have in common with our kids and the necessity of training your toes to cooperate with wearing sandals again.

So many hard hitting topics. So little time. Please do enjoy.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 136

On this episode we rehash the Hudson family Spring Break shenanigans, we celebrate the fact that Melanie has finished writing her latest book, and we talk about (another!) new TV show that Melanie and Perry are watching.

We also discuss some very exciting news regarding our dear friend* John Mayer.

*To be clear, John Mayer doesn’t know us from Adam’s house cat.

*The fact that he doesn’t know us is in no way a hindrance to our friendship.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 135

So once again the sound for me (Sophie) is horrible, so I am picking up on the subtle hint that perhaps I need a new microphone. WHY ARE YOU SURPRISED. But actually I don’t need a new microphone because sound is fine on ads, just not when Melanie and I record. I don’t even understand. WHO AMONG THEE IS TECH-Y?

Subpar audio aside, we thoroughly enjoyed catching up in this episode. We talk about college baseball, Melanie’s newfound career as a stencil artist, Alex’s 16th birthday, and How Is It Possible That Our Kids Are About To Drive. We also discuss an exciting (for Mel) new skincare option and how we’re both a little socially awkward right now.

All that to say: good times aplenty. Hope y’all enjoy!
