The Big Boo Cast, Episode 110

A few days ago some of the folks on our Big Boo Facebook page were kind enough to leave comments with some questions / topics that they wanted us to discuss, so that is exactly what Melanie and I do on this episode. We picked seven to start with, and my goodness: WE HAVE SOME THOUGHTS.

I actually couldn’t fit all of the answers into one episode (you’ll hear the rest next week), but we cover a lot of territory when it comes to grief (specifically in relation to my mama and Mel’s friend Jen), friendships, writing, and whether or not we enjoy crafts (I’ll take “NO” for $400, Alex). This episode is maybe a little extra personal, but we loved getting to talk about this stuff.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 109

In what is no doubt the complete opposite of a surprise, we had some sound issues with this one. We still don’t know exactly why. What we do know, though, is that I sound like a loud talker and Melanie sounds like a soft talker who is trying to subtly communicate to me that I need to PIPE DOWN. So thanks in advance for bearing with us; we’ll do our best to get that worked out for next time.

As for what we talk about, well, there’s a lot: college baseball (Mississippi State is headed to the College World Series!), a new show Melanie really likes, famous people we follow on Instagram, some new music I’m excited about, and a few new skincare / make-up finds.

So basically, you know, some of our favorite topics.

Hope y’all enjoy!

On this episode of the podcast we talk extensively about Southern Charm and caftans. AS YOU DO.

We also chronicle some of our current, um, hormone-adjacent frustrations, recap what’s happened for our teams so far in the college baseball post-season, and discuss some of our summer reading plans. Plus, Melanie brings us all up-to-speed on some highlights from The Bachelorette – and in doing so improves the quality of all our lives.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 107

If you’re in need of a little superficial to kick off your summer, this is the episode for you. We talk about nail polish, our nail-related frustrations, our favorite summer shoes, and all the reasons why we’re embracing the caftan for summer 2018.

We also discuss the fact that, in all of our Enneagram 9-ness, we are not ever concerned with any details at any point in time unless we’re talking about emotions. Because in that case we are HERE FOR ALL OF IT.
