Today, you’re in for a treat, T.A.A. Fans!
Your lit. rat had the chance to interview two memebers of our growing extended family of in-house fantastic fauna.
Our favorite pig and cat duo, Swinebert Glockchester and Dempsey Woyzeck, from T.A.A. FM’s upcoming podcast series, “Swinebert & Dempsey.“
Taurean: It’s so great to finally have a proper interview with you guys.
Swinebert: Agreed, we’ve put this off for too long!
Dempsey: Truly, we’re looking forward to this.
Taurean: Okay, let’s get started. How did you two meet?
Swinebert: Our humans are friends, and decided to move in together, so by association, me and Dempsey became roomies.
Dempsey: We didn’t get along at first. We’d met many times before we all started living together.
But being in the same house meant the things we couldn’t stand about each other stood out more than when we only saw each other every now and then.
Taurean: What kind of things bugged you about each other?
Swinebert: Dempsey seemed like such a stick in the mud! He kept to himself a lot, always had his snout in a book, and didn’t say much to me, and when he did, it was usually because something I did was driving him nuts!
Dempsey: Swinebert has a very dynamic and impactful personality, as you well know…
His Brooklyn accent threw me for a loop in the beginning. He always sounded “angry” to me at first.
Now I know it’s just how he talks, and find it endearing.
Plus, once I knew how S.B. sounds when he’s actually angry, his normal speaking voice became all the more endearing to me.
Swinebert: Thanks, I think…
Taurean: What are your humans like? What do they do for a living?
(Swinebert’s Human: Ferenc Süto, left youth, right grown-up)
Swinebert: My human’s Ferenc Süto. He works in a café by day and goes to night school four times a week. His dream is to one day open his own restaurant.
Dempsey: My human’s Vermont, Vernie for short. He works in a bookstore. Like me he LOVES books!
He’s still not sure what he wants for a career, but his dream is to inspire teens who don’t read for fun, to learn that love for literature. He also works part-time at a pub once a week, usually a Friday.
Taurean: Dempsey, I know you’ve mentioned in videos recently you have a girlfriend. Mind sharing a bit about her?
(Cèline, Dempsey’s Girlfriend)
Dempsey: Sure! Cèline and I have been together almost 8 years. We first met at a pet parents potluck my human Vernie threw trying to connect with more pet parents to find potential pet-sitters for Swinebert and me in case our usual one can’t make it.
Swinebert: Cèline’s human became our back up pet-sitter, and she’ brought Cèline to our place. Her and D clicked *claps hooves* like that. She was kind of freaked out by me at first.
Being a city cat she’d never met a studly hog such as myself up close before. But we’re buds now.
Taurean: That’s good to know. Have you got a sweetheart of your own, Swinebert?
Swinebert: Not at the moment, but I hope that’’’ will change someday.
Dempsey: I know it will, S.B. Hang in there. It took me several years before Cèline and I met.
