The Big Boo Cast, Episode 261

It’s no secret that Melanie and I share a love for Garth Brooks (remember: “every blessing is a curse, and every curse – is a blessing”), so we kick off this episode with a recap of the Garth show I saw at The Ryman this past weekend. We also talk about college football (of course) and the fact that Caroline is home for Thanksgiving.

On top of all that, we break down a movie that we both loved, and it’s my turn for Five Favorites.

Hope y’all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are super grateful for each one of you.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 260

If you’re wondering if we talk in this episode about Mississippi State’s comeback win against the Auburn Tigers, you’d better believe we do – not to mention that we break down a big high school football milestone from this past weekend, and Melanie comes through with her side eyes and I see yous.

We also discuss an exciting new cracker option and Adele’s CBS special (this is going to be our topic for our last November Patreon episode, and we cannot wait). Plus, Melanie has Five Favorites this week.

Enjoy, everybody!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 258

It was a weekend-o-wins on the football front (well, Texas A&M had a bye week, so that just means Melanie was extra relaxed), so naturally we had lots to talk about in this episode regarding The Sports. Plus, Melanie shares an update on Mabel, who has spent the last several days getting some really good care at the vet (we love you, Mabes).

There’s also some closet clean-out news (Mel’s favorite, as y’all know), and, as always, Five Favorites.
