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.

Well, if your idea of a good time is hearing <a href="http://thebigmamablog.com" target="_blank">Melanie</a> and me talk about how we can barely muster the will to leave the house this summer, then this podcast is for you!

And really, we are leaving the house. We would just not choose to leave the house, necessarily, if we weren't responsible for the care and socialization of some very active pre-teens. 

We also talk about how we met (I thought most people who read our blogs knew that story already, but I'm always happy to share it), a video thing that we're doing with Christy Nockels and my resulting hair insecurities, the holy re-do of Melanie getting to spend time with Christy and her hair, and the very exciting possibility of Melanie making a guest appearance on John Tesh's radio show.

I also have some disappointing Sheerlume news. I just want to prepare you for that in advance. 

We also discuss our favorite summer candles and answer a few more questions from y'all, too.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 48

Melanie and I definitely want to record podcasts more frequently this summer, but even still I'm a little shocked that we managed to put together one last week and this week, too. 

IS THIS WHAT PRODUCTIVITY FEELS LIKE?

Continue to keep those expectations low, though. It could very well be next April before we get our act together again. We're gonna try to do better, but keep in mind that we kind of pride ourselves on our consistent inconsistency.

On this podcast we answer more of your questions; we talk about Melanie's experience with Mr. Pillow, our favorite summertime breakfasts, Melanie's new couch, and my brief foray into obsessive scrapbooking. We also address Melanie's Aggie baseball heartache and discuss our commitment issues when it comes to our calendars.

And of course we talk about Sheerlume. However, we fail to mention either Amy Grant or Christy Nockels, so we probably need to pay some sort of podcasting fine.

Enjoy, y'all.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 47

Y'all were kind enough to submit a whole bunch of questions for this podcast, and we managed to answer about eight of them over the course of 50-ish minutes. We're gonna do our best to re-visit the list-o-questions next week; maybe the question answering will become a summertime tradition for us.

Honestly, that possibility sounds close enough to an actual plan that it makes me a little bit nervous. We do like to fly by the seat of our podcast pants, you know.

Anyway, we talk about Melanie's washing machine, the Sheerlume, how we (try) to balance the things that we do, what we're (maybe) writing next, what we're (probably) talking about at dotMOM, our favorite Starbucks drinks, and a whole host of other stuff. 

Please do enjoy.
