Indoorswomen - Episode 81 - Justice for Cats!

Cats: unfairly maligned by pop culture or true villains of the animal kingdom? In this episode, we explore how our furry feline friends are represented in media and wonder why they get a bad rap. Topics include cat tropes, witches’ familiars, cat shapeshifters, cartoon kitties, cat-like aliens, and much more. Listen meow!

Plus, we play a rousing game of Wed, Bed, Behead, and we wrap up with our Random Recommendations: Alias and Fever Dream by Of Monsters and Men.

Our intro/outro music is "We Are Highscore" by Krackatoa.

*Note: we apologize for a few small audio issues - Jen was having microphone/audio troubles, but it is totally listenable (better quality than our old google hangout casts!)*

Today we talk conventions (San Diego Comic Con, Denver Comic Con, Fanime, Silicon Valley Comic Con), geek news (Simon Pegg in the Ready Player One movie?).

We also talk a little bit about attending Felicia Day’s book signing! Embrace your weird!

The main event for this podcast is our love of Hayao Miyazaki movies. We discuss our favorites: Princess Mononoke and Laputa: Castle in the Sky, particularly their themes and the contrasts between them (and why we recommend them wholeheartedly!).

As usual, our awesome intro/outro music is “We are Highscore” by Krackatoa!
