LiSTNR just dropped the pawfect road trip mystery:

UnTrue: The Underdogs – Catch a Cat Burglar


All parents and carers know those four little words: ARE WE THERE YETThey may have worked brilliantly through the comedic genius of Eddie Murphy (Donkey) and Mike Myers (Shrek) in SHREK, but in REAL LIFE and to most parents, they represent the monotonous verbal anthem of millions of holiday trips across Australia.


All is not lost, LiSTNR has just dropped the pawfect antidote: UnTrue: an (un)true crime podcast for kids - LiSTNR Podcasts


LiSTNR’s UnTrue, is a hilarious new (un)true crime fiction podcast series that’s both a fun mystery for kids AND a ‘true crime’ comedy for grown-ups. All episodes are now out which means it’s the PAWFECT road trip binge for both kids AND adults to listen, get involved and try and solve the mystery!


The first paaaawzling season of UnTrue: The Underdogs – Catch a Cat Burglar is adapted from the children’s graphic novel ‘The Underdogs - Catch a Cat Burglar’ by Kate and Jol Temple and illustrated by Shiloh Gordon. Over eight episodes, kids and parents alike will be drawn into the gripping and hilarious mystery of ‘The Cat Burglar’ as investigated by true crime dogcaster, Trudie Poodle, and the second-best detective agency in Dogtown – The Underdogs. Trudie and The Underdogs will sniff out clues - and chase their own tails – as they come closer and closer to unmasking the felonious feline behind Dogtown’s most paaw-zzling unsolved ‘Cat Burglar’ crimes.


Parents will recognise some of the voices in the cast, including The Chaser’s Chris Taylor who voices Detective Barkley and fellow Chaser Andrew Hansen who voices four characters, and Zehra Naqvi from the Octonauts who voices Dr Spots and Rita Ringus.


PLUS, in other barking news and in an Australian first companion-game initiative, LiSTNR has re-created Dogtown within Roblox, the global platform that brings people together through play. With familiar locations and characters, players can help the Underdogs find gems hidden by the Cat Burglar and be awarded a virtual Underdogs badge.
