Welcome to

Dr. Lisa & Richie Redding on Pet Life Radio

Comics with Pets Talking to Vets!

Pets and Punchlines is the podcast that happens when a hip young veterinarian is dating a professional comedian.  On a regular basis some of the best comics in NYC call Richie so they can talk to Dr. Lisa and get free vet advice for their pets.  Ever since they moved in together, this has been a weekly occurrence that always starts off serious and winds up being funny.

This was the genesis of Pets and Punchlines. It's the only show of it's kind, pairing practicing veterinarians with pet loving comedians for a discussion that is serious, funny and smart.  The show is basically what it's like to hang out with Dr. Lisa and Richie Redding… it's going to be hilarious, informative and slightly inappropriate.

Episode 6 - Cat Training and Puppy Breath!

Richie's comic buddy Andy Fiori sits down for a hilarious conversation and he's full of questions. He's a great stand-up comic and host of Raw Report on Sirius XM. We hear some hysterical stories about his childhood pets as well as him becoming a scofflaw to save a cat!!! We also get all sorts of input from Dr. Lisa about important stuff like cat training and why puppies have such good breath.
