The Big Boo Cast
Authors / speakers Melanie Shankle and Sophie Hudson - also known as Big Mama and BooMama on their blogs - talk about all the important stuff: faith, family, friends, football, fashion, and food. Plus, of course, their hair.
The Big Boo Cast, Episode 45

Melanie and I never really know what we're going to talk about when we start to record a podcast, so maybe that will help explain to you why we spend far too many minutes in this particular podcast talking about fruit kabobs.

Yes. I said "fruit kabobs."

We also talk about the books I read at the beach (I definitely don't recommend Gone Girl; it is a page-turner for sure, but the more I think about it the more I wish I hadn't read it), our expectations about Amy Poehler's book (I was sort of expecting something like Hilarious Hijinks with Tina Fey, and it's not that at all), and why we expect more out of book characters as we get older. 

I also make Melanie talk about her new book, Nobody's Cuter than You, which comes out Tuesday, April 7th and will basically make you laugh and cry and then plan a girls' weekend with all of your closest friends. It's wonderful.

And then, for some reason, we segue' into a lengthy conversation about brunch foods, the aforementioned fruit kabobs, foods that make us a little sick when we think about them, the resurgence of cauliflower, and why we're no longer very interested in lettuce.

It it every bit as compelling as you'd expect.

Finally, of course, we talk about our skin and sunscreen and basically WHY ARE WE OLD.

Shockingly, we do not mention Amy Grant even one time. I have no explanation for this other than pure negligence.

Enjoy, y'all!
