We’re back in cozy territory with Murder Past Due, a book about paternity scandals, inheritance fraud, and bringing your cat to a funeral. Despite a promising premise, Sunshine and Dana were underwhelmed by this college town cozy.
A hard-boiled cop reincarnated as a cat teams up with a tarot card-reading housewife to solve a murder. What could go wrong? EVERYTHING. Dana and Sunshine lament the terrible grammar, buckwild plot, and general insanity of the book that broke their brains.
You’ve heard of Mad Libs, but Cat Libs? Dana and Sunshine attempt to write their own cozy mystery on the fly. Tune in for ancient burial grounds, Burt Shmeynolds, and martial law!
This week, we travel back to the swingin’ 60s to read The Cat Who Could Read Backwards. The hero cat, mustache with ESP, and sendup of the snooty art world made us smile. The horribly antiquated gender roles made us want to smash the patriarchy even harder!
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!
Episode 7 tackles the monstrous, garbage-fire “protagonist” of The Cats That Surfed the Web. Tune in for savage burns, millennials who still use answering machines and the unmysterious mystery of who killed Gary in the basement.
In Episode 6, Dana and Sunshine discuss Victoria Hamilton’s Much Ado About Muffin. Prepare yourselves for muffins! Murder! And…meth?!
In a special mini-episode, we delve into the obscure (and unfortunately titled) Victorian cat dictionary, Pussy and Her Language.
Episode 4 is full of psychic cats, magical mansplainers, and juicy high school drama. Join Dana and Sunshine as they read Harper Lin’s A Hiss-tory of Magic.
In this episode, Dana and Sunshine talk about their adventures at CatCon 2017. Tune in to hear about terrible cat-icatures, fantastic cat activists and more. More from CatCon 2017:
