Secretly Timid Quickie : Catching Up with Cool

As in life…sometimes 69 doesn’t turn out the way we expect. A meteor crashed into the cat studio and Episode 69 was damaged in the fire. Some audio clippings were salvaged. Among the found clippings is this conversation with Diane, who is currently Between Here & Cool. Some shorter clips were also saved and will be posted here via our SoundCloud account. Follow Diane’s journey via Between * Here & Cool and prepare yourself for next week’s episode 69!
