The Big Boo Cast, Episode 171

We may not have watched the Oscars this year, but that doesn’t stop us from having big opinions about 1) the dresses and 2) the current relationship status of Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak. In this episode we discuss both topics in great detail. We also talk about the fact that college baseball starts this weekend (!!!), and I dig into my thoughts about the State / A&M women’s basketball game this past Sunday (here’s a hint: both teams were fantastic).

It will not surprise you to learn that Melanie shares some beauty product updates (she is breathing, after all), and she has also discovered a new serum she can’t wait to try. Her skin care persistence is both inspiring and admirable.

Enjoy, y’all.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 170

Well, both of us recently watched “Miss Americana” – the Taylor Swift documentary on Netflix – and man-oh-man did we ever have some thoughts about it. We share about 278 of those thoughts in this episode. We also discuss some upcoming pop culture events we’re excited about (to be clear, I didn’t realize when we recorded that the Hamilton movie doesn’t come out until 2021, so please know the realization that I have to wait OVER A YEAR has been borderline heartbreaking).

There are some beauty product developments as well – and news about what may well be the finest mascara we have ever tried. Yes. You read that correctly. THE BEST MASCARA WE HAVE EVER TRIED. Eyelash dreams do come true, everyone.

Enjoy, y’all.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 169

Now that I think about it, it might have been a good idea to call this episode WELL WE HAVE WATCHED SOME THINGS. We talk about Broadway shows and TV shows and why I might have watched the recent two-part Garth Brooks Biography special four-ish times. Plus, Melanie has some very strong feelings indeed about Marriage Story – and we both have very strong feelings about Jennifer Aniston’s wardrobe in The Morning Show.

We also discuss a game we have both been obsessively playing on our phones – and we share some recent beauty favorites, too. So basically it’s a fine time indeed on ye olde podcast.

Enjoy, everybody!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 168

Melanie has a bit of a cold on this episode, which means you may start to wonder when I started recording a podcast with the ghost of Barry White. OH, I KID. And listen – are we all ever glad that Melanie toughed it out and recorded the episode despite her upper respiratory challenges, because she comes in strong with an update on 1) the raccoons that live next door to her and 2) the latest Royal Family news. We are in her debt.

We also discuss a couple of things we’ve cooked (and enjoyed) lately, and we share our thoughts about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Just like when we were young and full of collagen and it was 2002.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 167

Well, if you have dreamed of an in-depth weigh-in on the current Royal Family shenanigans, this may be the episode you’ve been waiting for. Suffice it to say that Melanie has some thoughts, and oh, has she ever done her research. We also discuss our new favorite Netflix show, and I don’t mean to brag, but I’m pretty sure I PR’d in terms of viewing time. You’ll be happy to know that I blazed through those six episodes like a champion.

We also talk about our friend Travis’ FANTASTIC new album called Spirit Rise (Melanie and I both adore it) as well as our realization that we don’t really care about awards shows anymore. Our 20-something selves don’t know how to process this development.

The Big Boo Cast, Bonus Episode – Mike Leach (!!!)

Today we found out that Mike Leach is the new head football coach at my beloved Mississippi State University.

Needless to say, Melanie and I needed to talk about it.

This is just a little bonus episode, but our enthusiasm, of course, knows no bounds. So all that to say: we invite you to share in our joy. :-)

Happy Weekend, everybody!
