The Watercooler: Issue #42 Raining Cats and Dogs

It’s raining cats and dogs! And all the other animals!

There is really no way to write this description without sounding like an advert for Animates, so we’ll keep it short and sweet. This month we get to see Alice Kirker, Jono Croucher, and Grace Cullen delve into the wondrous world of animals. We’ve got the dirt on all the animals in the kingdom including doggos, meow makers, fart squirrels, tall spotty horses, and the one and only legless psychedelic water gallopers. If none of that made sense, fear not! Come along and have all your pet and animal queries answered!*

*You are almost guaranteed to not have any of your pet and animal queries answered, not even one, but you should definitely still come.

Issue #42 is hosted by the ever-hilarious Donna Brookbanks, one of the pioneers of hit weekly improv show Snort, comedian, and actor. You might also know her from her work on Funny Girls, Jono and Ben and Shortland Street.

Inspired by many well-known storytelling events and podcasts held worldwide (The Moth, This American Life), The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell stories both true and imagined. Storytellers are given a simple brief to share a story inspired by the month’s theme, whether based on real-life experiences or entirely fictional.
