Dull characters and a shaky plot twist hindered this book, but we did get a scene where a cat goes to a funeral! Listen to our Murder …

Episode 8: The Cat From Outer Space

Disclaimer: we’re not astrophysicists, but we’re pretty sure The Cat From Outer Space defies ALL scientific logic. This is our first episode devoted to a cat film, and based on the quality of the film we watched, it may be our last. Listen in for psychic space cats, fraud, and good old fashioned workplace sexism!
