Can I Pet Your Dog?
Animal-loving hosts: Allegra Ringo and Renee Colvert

Tall tails: In each episode, Ringo and Colvert gush about the pooches they’ve met on the street, in coffee shops, and more. The pup-centric program also includes Mutt Minute (a deep dive into various breeds) and interviews with writers (like Lin-Manuel Miranda), artists (Lisa Hanawalt), and comedians (Nicole Byer) who dish about the cherished canines (Tobillo, Indy, and Charlie, respectively) in their lives.

Oh Behave!
Animal-loving host: Arden Moore

Tall tails: If you want to understand why your dog gets spooked at the vet or how to enrich your indoor cat’s life, pet first-aid instructor and behavioral consultant Moore has answers. Her program digs into aspects of animal behavior both adorable and aggravating, and includes tributes to military dogs, pet fashion tips (be wary of fur-related Velcro injuries), and Q&As with everyone from ur-pet-lover Betty White to emergency vets.

The Purrrcast
Animal-loving hosts: Sara Iyer and Steven Ray Morris

Tall tails: It’s a meow mix of personal kitty updates from Iyer (mom to mixed breed Samba) and Morris (dad to short-haired tabby Miss Penny Lane), sprightly interviews with cat people (because “we can’t talk to their cats”), and discussions about the highs (early-morning snuggle sessions) and lows (spilling wet cat food on yourself) of sharing a home with felines.
