The Big Boo Cast, Episode 153

Well, we have been to Amarillo, and we both absolutely loved our trip. So we kick off this episode talking about All The Fun we had with Jamie and Erin and Knox and the Amarillo Angels. Plus, you know, Torchy’s Tacos.

We also talk about Homecoming in the here and now and Homecoming in ye olden (Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock) days, along with a couple of new products Melanie has tried and our (unexpected!) shared reality TV boundary. Plus, you know, our favorite person to follow on Twitter.

As always, thanks so much for listening. Hope you enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 152

On this episode we chronicle Melanie’s recent football heartache, we talk about our upcoming trip to Amarillo, and we break down some thoughts about the fact that the leopard print trend has arrived with authority and apparently intends to stay.

We also talk about the difficulty of persuading our eyes to wake up in the mornings, along with some potions and salves that are bringing Melanie some real hope. And in what might be one of my favorite topics ever, we dig into an offhand comment where Melanie reveals that the Shankles own an extra set of tires. COLOR ME FASCINATED.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 151

True to form, we cover a wide array of unrelated topics in this episode, including Melanie’s sassy new haircut and her Ross Gellar leather-ish leggings. We also talk about how assembling a 25-cube storage organizer nearly sent D and me to counseling.

And as you can imagine, I’m delighted to announce that there’s an interruption by P that caught Melanie and me both off guard, along with a run-down of a few products we bought during the Sephora sale (well, I only bought one, really, but I love it with my whole heart and expect to use it for the rest of my days).

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 150

We didn’t have what I would call a *hard* outline when we started recording this episode, but oh my goodness we had us some laughs. We talk about Caroline’s first day of 11th grade and the fact that her school now has a coffee bar, we break down some of our thoughts about Southern Charm, and we get very tickled talking about Melanie’s potential plans when it comes to cosmetic procedures.

We also discuss communication strategies with teenagers and some of our menu options now that our kids are back in school. You might notice that Melanie’s hair brushes against the microphone a lot in this episode (we’ve since talked about it and secured a supply of hair ties for the next time we record), but all is forgiven because when we talk about skincare she makes up an entirely new word and uses it with authority.

This is all I could ever ask of my podcasting partner.

Please do enjoy.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 149

Well, you’ll never believe this, but something is weird with my sound on this episode. WHY? I have no idea. My phone was across the room, my FitBit was across the room, and I can’t think of anything that might have been causing the problem. So the solution? PRETEND LIKE IT’S NOT HAPPENING.

And while you’re pretending, you can hear us talk about our favorite vegetables, Melanie’s recent family trip, and my issues with eyeshadow. What’s not to love?

Please do enjoy.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 148

We kick off this episode with some awe and maybe a tiny bit of lamenting that our kids are officially licensed drivers, which is totally surreal but at least gives us opportunities to watch them swing and catch their keys a lot while they contemplate where they’d like to go next. As teenagers do.

We also talk about a few books I’ve read lately, some books Melanie is about to read, and some shows that have grabbed our attention. We have a lengthy discussion about this last season of The Real Housewives of New York City, and all I know to say about that is please don’t judge us for having such sophisticated television taste.

Last thing: at the end of this episode there’s a clip of this month’s Patreon Q&A, and if you haven’t joined us on Patreon yet, well, come on over. The first bonus episode will be out on Friday, August 9th. The Q&A, which is the second bonus episode, will be out on Monday, August 20th.

Happy 148, everybody! Hope y’all enjoy.
