EP 115 - Chatterbox
Do you ever wish you could talk to your cat? Be careful what you wish for. Tim and Rebecca talk about the Catterbox, a prototype product that gives your cat a human voice with a British accent. What’s next? How about an app that translates human conversation into feline language? Oh wait – that already exists, too.

Episode 112 - Max the Cat
Some animal stories go viral. Others don’t. Some animal stories promote commentary on digital culture, intellectual property and copyright. And all of this is just because a cat named Max wanted to visit a library. Max is nice. But he’s not welcome in the library. The library that is full of paper, books, shelves and comfortable seating. Poor Max. A building full of things cats love and he’s been banished. On this episode, listen while we discuss Max’s story and its broader implications.

Episode 111 - Asia's First Cats
Cats are gaining power all over the world, but especially in Asian countries. Several cats are particularly well-positioned to gain control of a few federal governments. They are “first cats,” meaning beloved pets of national leaders. All over Asia, cats are living in presidential housing, listening in on important policy meetings, making statements to the press and being extremely cute the whole time. Meowster hopes this “first cat” phenomena reaches North America soon. The U.S. hasn’t had a presidential cat since Socks Clinton and it’s about time there was another one, or two, or more.

Episode 110 - Anton & Cecil: Cats Aloft
Buckle yourselves in for a ride in a hot air balloon, the world’s first Ferris Wheel and an ice slide roller coaster as Tim and Rebecca discuss Anton and Cecil: Cats Aloft, the third and final installment of the adventuring cat brothers’ book trilogy. It’s a bittersweet episode as we’re thrilled at their high-flying feats, yet despondent as we’ve come to the end of their North American treks. Goodbye noble Anton. Goodbye valiant Cecil. We hope your golden years in Lunenberg are full of fresh fish and long naps.

Episode 109 - Cats Crazy
Do you think your cats are driving you crazy? Are you suspicious of houses that are overcrowded with people causing traffic accidents? If so, Dr. Tim thinks you should stay out of your yard. But seriously, recent research has conclusively proven that cats don’t make you crazy… at least clinically, that is.

Episode 108 - Cat's Eye
A big dog, a dark ride in the back of a truck, fast-moving traffic (both pedestrian and automotive), abductions by "greasy" people, ending up behind bars, and an epic battle with a troll. All this and more is what makes Cat's Eye, the 1985 horror anthology film featuring stories by Stephen King, the most terrifying movie for a cat ever made. It's got a great theme song, though. Which makes it good for humans.

Episode 107 - Cats Don't Dance
In this episode, we discuss an animated movie titled “Cats Don’t Dance” in which cats definitely do dance. In fact, the lead character is a cat who, along with his musically talented multi-species friends, dances up a toe-tapping storm. And if that weren’t confusing enough, a fish is best friends with a goat, a child star doesn’t appear to have any human relatives and Rebecca doesn’t seem to know the difference between Ted Turner and Steven Spielberg.

Episode 106 - Palme de Whiskers
“Bienvenue à la cérémonie annuelle des moustaches de Palme.” This is how Google translate imagines the feline guests would be welcomed to the Palme de Whiskers ceremony at the Cannes Film Festival. But whether the French translation is accurate or not doesn’t matter since the Palme de Whiskers and all the pomp and purrs surrounding it are a complete figment of film expert Barbara Scharres’ imagination. Take a trip to Cannes with Meowster Podcast to find out about Scharres’ take on make-believe meowing jury members and their opinions on the best international films that actually feature cats.

Episode 105 - Kitty
The shortest movie we have ever discussed turns out to be the hardest movie to ever find. Listen closely for the instructions so that you can find it, too. There’s a website, an internal search bar, an embedded video at the bottom of a page. But it’s worth it if you’d like to see a whisper of a film about a girl who becomes a cat. The short film, “Kitty,” is worth the effort. Sorry about the sound quality on this episode, by the way. It wasn't Harriet's fault, but we could have blamed it on her.

Episode 104 - A Street Cat Named Bob
Here at Meowster Podcast, we just saw a film performance by the best actor cat working today. And he’s not even an actor cat. In fact, he’s not trained in any of the performing arts at all. We watched “A Street Cat Named Bob” and we think you should, too.

Episode 103 - Oliver & Company
The kitten in Oliver and Company has probably inspired the naming of more cats than any other feline in popular culture. So what is this kitten all about? What makes him and this film so special? Is it the 80s pop music? Oliver’s adorable naiveté? Or is it the telling of one of the most confusing plots Meowster Podcast has ever encountered.

Episode 102 - Feral Love
Here's a joke for you: Q: What's the difference between a feral cat and a viola? A: Everything! Now, if you come up with a better punchline, let us know. Unfortunately, we don't have a better punchline because the documentary "Feral Love," doesn't ever truly draw a connection - either through similarities or differences - between its two main topics, feral cats and the art of the viola. These two disparate things are the passions of New York Philharmonic violist Dorian Rence, who is a fascinating and dedicated woman. And she may make a great documentary for a different filmmaker someday. However, "Feral Love" just isn't that film.

Episode 101- Cats and Divorce
Little furry scapegoats. That’s what cats are when they’re blamed for divorces. Little furry non-human vertebrates. That’s what cats are when they’re fought over in custody cases. In this episode, we were surprised to discover just how closely cats are linked to the history of American divorces and property law. But, for better or for worse, we’re never surprised to find out how much people love their cats.

Episode 100 - Kedi
It’s Meowster’s 100th episode and we’re spending it in Istanbul. The astoundingly beautiful documentary “Kedi” is our topic this time. If you haven’t experienced this stunning and spiritual film focused on the unique lives of street cats in Istanbul, do so immediately. Loving cats and loving this film go hand-in-hand. And just so all of this ardor and sincerity doesn’t confuse our listeners, stay tuned for a special 100th anniversary outtake featuring our feline producer and costar, Harriet.
