The Big Boo Cast, Episode 82

bigboographic

Well, the first thing I should probably mention is that we recorded this episode while we were having a thunderstorm in Birmingham, and Hazel was losing her fool mind over the weather. Just think of her barking as soothing background music. 

The second thing I should probably mention is that we talk a LOT about college football this time around. It’s just that time of year, y’all. So we break down the latest with Melanie’s Aggies and my Bulldogs, we discuss Melanie’s need for some football boundaries, and I break down my most recent trip to Starkville. 

(Full disclosure: Melanie and I recorded this episode just a few days after Mississippi State’s decisive victory over the LSU Tigers. It was a glorious time. Since then, however, the Bulldogs have experienced the heartache of a loss to the Georgia Bulldogs. Needless to say, we recorded a quick post-State/UGA follow-up segment to address this sad MSU turn of events, along with the outcome of the A&M/Arkansas game. Stay tuned at the end for that.)

We also talk about Homecoming dresses (because CAROLINE IS THAT OLD NOW, HOW DID THAT EVEN HAPPEN?), rose hip oil (who’s surprised?), and TV. These are a few of our favorite things.

Hope y’all enjoy it!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 81

bigboographic

Well, first of all, we recorded this episode with Melanie talking on her phone because her microphone was in the guest room where P was napping. Sure, we could have waited until another day so that the sound quality was better, but when you’ve only recorded 80 podcasts over the last 10 years, you take the recording opportunities when they present themselves – no need to wait for pesky sound equipment.

Second of all, we answer several of your questions in this podcast, including how we navigate arguments in our marriages and whether watching This Is Us is worth it (short answer: YES). We also discuss fall fashion, disagree about whether booties have run their course, and marvel at our current state of skin care contentment.

Finally, we talk about workout pants and granola because, well, of course.

Enjoy, y’all!
