Last week I got to meet Deirdre Kennedy the wonderful person behind Animals Aloud, a wonderful pet radio show on XM Radio and KPFA. We had a pretty humorous interview about Dogster and Catster which is going to be part of the next show.

The program airs Saturday the 17th 6pm Eastern/3pm Pacific on XMPR Channel 133.

It can also be heard on KUSF 90.3 in San Francisco at 2:30 pm Saturday December 17, 2005 OR you can hear it streamed live from KUSF’s web site at

On the 18th a recored version of the program was made permanently be available on their excellent website but has since been taken down. They used to have a bunch of previous shows you can listen too anytime.

Deidre taught me a new term. While I call Dogster a mental vacation, she called it virtual valium! I think she’s more precise. Take me away Dogster!
