The Big Boo Cast, Episode 268

We waited until after the National Championship game (congrats, Georgia Bulldogs!) to record this episode, so naturally we talk about the game and all the reasons why we felt like it was the best of college football. We also discuss Melanie’s weekend with Caroline and her college friends, plus a new kind of exercise I recently tried for the first time.

On top of that, we offer our thoughts on the Duchess of Cambridge’s 40th birthday portraits, and it’s Melanie’s turn for Five Favorites.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 267

Well, we’re kicking off 2022 with some on-brand audio issues (this time on my end – because my microphone didn’t connect to Zoom and I didn’t think to check it), so we hope that will be a comfort to you. Since we didn’t realize that I sounded like I was talking in a canyon, we still enjoyed some lively discussions about home deer and the Chick-fil-A drive-thru and #lowlevelgoals.

We also share some thoughts about bowl games, and it’s my turn for Five Favorites.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 266

Well, it’s a post-Christmas recap on this week’s episode, complete with our thoughts about what we ate and what we watched and what we’re looking forward to in this last week of the year.

Also, Melanie shares her thoughts on the Aggies’ bowl-game-that-wasn’t, and she has a fantastic list of Five Favorites that resulted in me buying not one but two things before we even finished recording.

Hope y’all enjoy!

It’s our last episode before Christmas, and we spend some time lamenting our respective weather forecasts (that is to say: it’s not going to be anywhere close to cold). Also, Melanie shares her recent Paris Hilton fascination as well as an update on Caroline’s Christmas break.

As always, we wrap up with Five Favorites (it’s my turn this week). We hope y’all have the merriest Christmas!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 264

This past weekend Melanie went to a wedding and I went to an art exhibit, so clearly we are living Very Fancy Lives. Naturally we talk about All The Fanciness before I recap Alex’s Christmas choir concert (a 2021 highlight for me) and we discuss our thoughts on bowl season / the College Football Playoffs.

On top of all that, it’s Melanie’s turn for Five Favorites, which is always a delight.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 263

There wasn’t as much college football this past weekend, but there was still plenty of real life to talk about, including how our dogs like to encourage us to take them for walks and what we’ve been watching lately.

Plus, Melanie shares an interesting theory re: a favorite vegetable, and it’s my turn for Five Favorites.
