Let's Talk About Cats

Comedy Podcasts >

Tired of listening to people yammering about things that aren’t cats? SAME. Hi, I’m noted cat lady Mary Phillips-Sandy, and all I want in this life is to talk about cats with fellow noted cat people. My guests include comedians, writers, journalists, athletes and other people with interesting careers that we will not talk about, because we’re just here to talk about cats. My producer Lizzie (who doesn’t even HAVE a cat, long story) would like you to know that this is a fast-paced, off-kilter interview show with exciting segments like the Cat Quiz challenge and the Hot Topic debate, where we resolve a divisive feline issue once and for all. Then it’s time for hard-hitting questions: Has your cat helped you through a breakup? Is there inter-cat drama in your house? What’s the best thing your cat has taught you? How do you and your cat handle being apart? Expect a lot of laughs, some accidental revelations and approximately half an hour of reasonably intelligent banter. Produced by Lizzie Jacobs. Featuring an original theme song by Poingly, plus additional music by The English Muffins. Show logo by Julia Emiliani.

Ana Marie Cox, host of With Friends Like These, stopped by the day after the midterm elections to take a break from politics and discuss her cats Luke and Leia.

Warning: there’s a bad pun in this episode. It is not Claudia Restrepo’s fault! You know her from BuzzFeed’s Pero Like, and today she tells us all about Oscar, who—like so many other residents of La La Land—is handsome, talented, and difficult. Claudia also lets us in on the peculiar challenges of working among dog people, learning to let go when Oscar heads outside, and breaking up—and finding new love—with an incorrigible cat in the picture.
