Mr. Bear reads the riveting work of Cathy Ulrich—dark, poetic gems featuring murdered mermaids, girl detectives, astronauts, and more. Each tiny story is part of a glittering, infinite, kaleidoscopic whole that will make your heart spin. (You can buy her book GHOSTS OF YOU from Okay Donkey!) In the musical spotlight are the “alternative frantic angular indie punk solo bass compositions” of Puppet Midnight (along with a mini-interview!). Plus, Miss Mousie has the scoop on poop, or rather, not pooping.
