Episodes of The Woof Meow Show, a Maine-based radio show all about pets, is now available as a podcast at http://woofmeowshow.libsyn.com/webpage and at the Apple iTunes store. The show is on Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. and Sundays at 8:30 p.m. on the Voice of Maine WVOM, 103.9FM & WVQM 101.3FM.
First airing in 2005, the show is hosted by Don Hanson and Kate Dutra of the Green Acres Kennel Shop in Bangor. The show focuses on educating dog and cat parents about their dogs and cats.
Topics in the past have included: Dealing with a Barking Dog, Picking the Perfect Pet, Insurance Issues for Pets, Veterinary Acupuncture, Estate Planning for Pet Parents, Pet Nutrition, the Benefits of Spaying and Neutering, Litter Box Training and many others. Past guests on the show have been veterinarians (Dr. Mark Hanks, Dr. Judy Herman, and Dr. David Cloutier), authors (Steve Brown, Kathryn Miles, Pat Miller, and Joel Walton), representatives from various pet food and pet product companies and experts on behavior, training and pet care.
Hanson, who also produces the The Woof Meow Show, stated “Kate and I are really excited to have the show available via podcast so that it can be accessible to those that don’t live in Maine or those outside of the WVOM and WVQM broadcast area. While some of our shows are local in nature, most cover topics that will be of interest to pet parents anywhere. In fact, many of our guests are from outside of Maine. For example, our most recent guest was Professor Chad Montrie, the Massachusetts filmmaker behind the documentary Tough Love: A Meditation on Dominance and Dogs. In the five days since that episode was broadcast we’ve had over 140 people, from all over the world, download it as a podcast.“
Hanson indicated that the current library of podcasts goes back to October 2012, but that he will be uploading older shows as time permits.
