The Big Boo Cast, Episode 26

Well, I’m afraid that Melanie and I have hit an all-time podcasting low in terms of our topics. Because we discuss all manner of mundane matters. There’s weather, feet, postpartum, the African dust storm (I had no idea this was even a thing), more weather, pajamas, college football – and that’s not even the half of it. We even managed to work salads into the conversation.

I’m not gonna lie. If you make it all the way through this one, it’s probably because you’re a relative.

Nonetheless, we’re just as tickled as we can be that we have recorded and lo, even posted our fourth podcast of the summer. This is surely some sort of record.

Well, I would say that this is our special 4th of July podcast, but that would imply that we had 1) a plan or 2) a theme. However, please feel free to light yourself a sparkler before or after you listen to it. There’s certainly nothing wrong with adding a festive touch.

Since Melanie and I didn’t get to talk much last week, I was so excited about recording this podcast just so we could catch up a little bit more. I will warn you that the sound is doing something a little weird in places, but I don’t know how to fix it since I’m not exactly sure what the problem is. I’m starting to think, though, that a new microphone might be in order. Maybe one of those fancy ones that I can wear like a headset. It’s high-time that I made my eight year-old dream of being a DJ come true. Well, sorta.

Anyway, this week we’re talking about what we’re cooking (again! with new developments!), what we’re reading, and then we spend some time talking about the wonders of Amazon Prime. Also, about mid-way through this episode, the folks who are replacing Melanie’s roof start working on the roof with great enthusiasm, which means that there are all sorts of sound effects we never intended. There may have even been a moment when I wondered if someone had fallen through Melanie’s ceiling. This level of professionalism and quality is no doubt what you have come to expect from us.

And on a serious note: It seems like lately there’s been one heartbreaking tragedy after another. We’re holding the families and friends of the nineteen Prescott, Arizona firefighters extra close in our prayers.

Before I do anything else, I want to make sure to mention that there’s a group of Compassion Bloggers in Nicaragua right now. And when you get a chance, be sure to read this post of Edie’s. She must have been exhausted – utterly overwhelmed – when she wrote it, but it’s a beautiful reminder of how child sponsorship through Compassion changes lives.

Now.

On to (much) more trivial matters.

Melanie and I decided this morning that we were going to record a podcast. There was no particular reason – we would never dream of creating anything resembling a plan or a schedule – but it just seemed like a good idea. You may decide otherwise after you listen to it, but hey! Two podcasts in one year! We are on a roll!

As usual, we talk about everything and nothing: what to cook for supper, the College World Series (GO BULLDOGS), the wonders of coconut oil, the NSA scandal (well, kinda), technology and banking (well, kinda), and movies / TV shows we probably had no business watching when we were children.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 23

So yesterday I was sitting outside The UPS Store while I wrapped up a conversation with Melanie. The conversation only lasted about five whole minutes because I was bound and determined to plow through my to-do list, and Mel was on her way to eat lunch with a friend. But just as we were about to hang up, she said, “Hey. We should try to podcast sometime soon.”

And I said, “Okay. How about tomorrow?”

And she said, “Sounds good.”

So we did. We recorded a podcast. And in addition to that, we managed to record a podcast where 1) you can actually hear both of us 2) the Internet connection was reliable and 3) I was able to upload the file without incident.

I am totally unfamiliar with how to respond given this unprecedented series of events.

Anyway. We cover all sorts of stuff: college baseball, working out, the length of shorts, phobias, skin care, and Taylor Swift. I can’t promise that it’s entertaining, but I can promise that it’s, you know, there. And quite frankly that is more than I’ve been able to say for the last eleven months.

Please do enjoy.

Melanie and I recorded this one yesterday morning.

Right after I’d consumed two very strong cups of coffee.

So I’m afraid that I’m a little bit WOUND UP, and for that I do apologize.

As usual, this particular podcast is a total hodge podge of topics; we (very! enthusiastically!) go from Southern accents to The Bachelorette to politics to music videos to fashion to memorable Miss Mississippi talents and even more stuff that I can’t remember.

So all that to say: if you enjoy random, WELCOME.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 20

Melanie and I might as well call this one A Special TV Edition.

Because we talk a LOT about TV. That might have something to do with the fact that I’ve been watching a lot of TV lately. But we also talk a little bit about health and beauty issues. And fashion. And duets from the 80s. And soap operas from the 80s. And how we’re not really watching The Bachelorette but still remain somewhat fascinated by it. Which brings us right back around to that whole TV thing that I mentioned earlier.

So see? It’s all very structured and organized.

Except for the fact that it’s a total train wreck.

But if you’re a person who likes to start 15 different conversations without ever really finishing any of them, odds are that you’re going to feel right at home.
