More about Let's Talk About Cats
So a cat person and a non-cat person walk into a coffee shop… and next thing you know, they’re making a podcast together. About cats.
It’s true. Host Mary Phillips-Sandy has been a cat person her entire life. Producer Lizzie Jacobs—well, Lizzie doesn’t care much about cats, and never has. But she does care about people with fascinating and funny stories, and as it turns out, cat people are people too, and they’re full of fascinating and funny stories. Let’s Talk About Cats began as an idea Mary had in the spring of 2014. For various reasons—now there’s a story! a long one!—it languished in the back of her brain until the spring of 2018, when a friend sat her down and said, “you need to make that cat podcast now, and I know someone who can help you.” A few days later, Mary and Lizzie met for the first time at a coffee shop in midtown Manhattan. Lizzie proceeded to impress Mary with her thoughtful ideas about podcast production and storytelling. Mary proceeded to alarm and intrigue Lizzie with her passion for cats, as well as the secret reason she really wanted to make the show: she believed (and still does) that talking about cats is a way to understand the deepest, darkest, weirdest, most personal parts of our selves. Also she had a bizarre yet catchy theme song all ready to go.
The rest, as they say, is history. Let's Talk About Cats is part of the Acast family of podcasts. Guest have included Choire Sicha, Chris Barron of The Spin Doctors, Ana Marie Cox, Sachi Ezura, Dulcé Sloan, Evan Ratliff and many more.
