The Big Boo Cast, Episode 206

This week was a real home run as far as our technical prowess, because something extra bizarre happened with my sound file the first time we recorded – so we had to re-record two days later.

We’re just trying to stay on brand with 2020, apparently.

So what we have here is a barely-edited episode (which is why it’s a little longer than normal) – just edited enough to put the ads in their appropriate places – and you’ll have to trust that we did our best to stay enthusiastic even though what we would have really liked to do is quit. Look at our perseverance!

Enjoy, y’all. :-)

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 205

There’s only one way to sum up how the college football weekend turned out for Melanie and me: it was not ideal. So on this episode we discuss our respective disappointments (in fairness, Melanie seemed to handle things much better than I did) and do our best to believe there are great football days ahead. You can almost smell the optimism.

We also talk about what Melanie’s watching, why she wants some new living room chairs, and what in sam hill is going on with her computer (I complain a little about that last thing). If all that weren’t enough, I confess some sentimental feelings and share my new booties obsession. DOESN’T THAT SOUND LIKE MORE FUN.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 204

Normally Melanie and I try to show some restraint during college football season, but this week, between the start of SEC football, Mike Leach’s coaching debut with Mississippi State, and my Bulldogs winning in Baton Rouge, WE HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY. Thank you in advance for your patience with us during this very exciting time.

In addition to talking about football, football, and LO, MORE FOOTBALL, we discuss my day-o-fun at a student leadership retreat and five of Melanie’s current favorites.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 203

If listening to Melanie and me troubleshoot our technical issues is your idea of quality podcast material, then this, my friends, is going to be the episode of your dreams. Our ish-ahs are thanks to a clicking noise that I believe to be the result of a short in one of Melanie’s USB ports, but what matters most, I think, is that Melanie’s reactions to the whole situation are SOLID GOLD.

In addition to our showing off our technical prowess, we also spend some time in this episode talking about SEC football, homegating food, Coach O’s Power Hour, the delightfulness of dresses, and Melanie’s 162nd closet cleanout of 2020.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 202

If you listened to last week’s episode, then you won’t be surprised to learn that the first thing we address on this episode is WHAT IN THE WORLD HAPPENED WITH THE BOOTIES? It might well be the biggest cliffhanger in the history of our little podcast. Our own version of Who Shot JR?, only with shoes. And no oil fortune. And no guns. But other than that, IDENTICAL.

In addition to a booties update, we talk about foot problems, Perry’s upcoming 50th birthday, books, and my new favorite socks. And of course we talk about high school football and college football because we sort of enjoy it. You may have picked up on that.

Thanks for listening, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 201

You’ll be shocked to know that we talk about football on this episode (including our favorite stay-up-to-read-the-post-game-news wins), and we also break down a little Real Housewives because, well, WE ARE STILL IN A PANDEMIC.

On top of all that excitement, we discuss what we’re reading, five things I’m enjoying right now, and the harrowing situation with Mel’s most recent booties order from Nordstrom.

Please do enjoy.
