The Big Boo Cast, Episode 80

bigboographic

It’s always a treat to have our friend Travis Cottrell on the podcast, and this episode is no exception. We cover a wide stretch of conversational ground: favorite football snacks, the wonder of an Amish donut, our ever-growing kids, current Bible study options, and, of course, our obsession with rose hip oil.

(That last one was more of a discussion between Melanie and me. But Travis was as patient as he could be when we talked about it.)

(Or maybe he was just distracted.)

We also reminisce about shampoos from the 70s. I would try to give you some context, but it’s probably just easier if you listen for yourself. And no joke:¬†Melanie must have taken her one-liner pill before we recorded; there are some Shankle Gems (I think we may have to trademark that phrase) (only not really) scattered throughout.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 79

bigboographic

I think it was last summer when Melanie and I first talked about Last Chance U. We both binge-watched season one of the Netflix series, and in addition to discussing it on the podcast, there were several times when we talked on the phone about it because we were so fascinated by a certain player or could not believe how someone reacted. Then, in episode 78 I mentioned that I’d watched season 2 and found it just as magical as season 1 (however – and I’m not sure if I mentioned this – the language is terrible).

:-)

Anyway. All that to say: you can imagine our delight when Brittany Wagner, the academic counselor on LCU, agreed to be our special guest on episode 79.

It was THE MOST FUN.

So, in this episode, Melanie and I talk to Brittany about football and clothes and beauty products. (I should mention that I make a critical error and identify Mississippi State’s season where they were ranked #1 as the 2015 season…but it was 2014…so I beg a thousand pardons.) We also hear about some of the players she’ll be watching play D-1 this fall – and how her new career adventure got started (it’s such a neat story). After Melanie and I finish our conversation with Brittany, we launch into a discussion about music, what we’re cooking, and a whole host of unrelated items.

In other words: business as usual.
