The Big Boo Cast, Episode 90

Our good friend Travis Cottrell is with us on this episode of the podcast, and we talk about all manner of unrelated topics. We dig into some Christmas traditions, discuss our favorite Christmas music, break down the college football play-offs (along with our coaching changes), and ponder the deep well of teenage sarcasm that is currently full to overflowing in all of our homes.

Also, you’d better believe that Neil Diamond makes an appearance. Or two. Or three.

Be warned: Melanie, Travis, and I talk about so much stuff that you may never get through all the links. But in case you’d like to try, you can find most of what we mention below.

Hope y’all enjoy this one – we sure did have a blast recording it.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 89

If you’ve listened to our podcast for any length of time, you know that from a technical standpoint, whatever can go wrong typically will go wrong. Because Melanie and I have somewhat limited technical / production skills.

Well.

On this episode Melanie and I talk to our (hilarious) (also deeply gifted) singer / songwriter / comedian friend Dave Barnes, and unfortunately I forgot to hit “record” for the first 15-20 minutes of our conversation. SO THERE’S THAT. And what that means for you, dear listener, is that when I finally did in fact hit the record button, we were smack-dab in the middle of a conversation about the Enneagram and introversion / extroversion. So just stick with us during what will certainly feel like conversational whiplash. It’ll all make sense soon enough.

And despite my personal technical ineptitude, I have to say that talking with Dave was super encouraging for Melanie and me (and I think it will be for you, too). He has such great perspective on writing / creating, and the way he thinks through that whole process was really therapeutic for us. We talk a lot about calling and the vulnerability involved in walking out whatever that calling happens to be – not to mention that we laugh a ton.

We also talk about the State / Ole Miss rivalry. Because OF COURSE. Just keep in mind that we recorded this episode before Mullen and Sumlin left the Bulldogs and the Aggies, respectively (WHAT WE DIDN’T KNOW, y’all. WHAT WE DIDN’T KNOW).

Enjoy, everybody!
