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!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 134

Full disclosure: the sound isn’t great on this episode – it cuts in and out a lot and who could possibly know why because we do everything the same way every single time but for some reason this time I (Sophie) sound like a gravelly-voiced DJ from the 70s and WHATEVER, STUPID MICROPHONE – but despite the subpar sound, we had ourselves some fun. We discuss our deep lack of understanding re: taxes, we chronicle all the reasons we aren’t cooking, and we discuss a couple of things we’re really loving on Netflix.

Melanie also outlines some new decorative goals for Caroline’s room, and we discuss our favorite means of social media procrastination when we’re writing as well as our suggestions for better, more meaningful social media experiences. The sarcasm meter is running HIGH, y’all.

Enjoy, everybody!

If you are intrigued by The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as well as charcuterie boards, well – DO WE EVER HAVE AN EPISODE FOR YOU. We also talk about our low-key Valentine celebrations (“celebrations” is a *strong* word, really), discuss the wonder of a harp-playing raccoon, and break down what we love about some Nivea cream recommended by our good friend Jamie Golden.

Finally, we share some exciting news (to us) (probably not to anyone else) about some inexpensive jeans *and* a sassy jumpsuit. We do hope you’ll share in our joy.
