The Cat gets temporal (via a dingey side-alley packed full of flashers) with special guest Alan Baxter, award-winning author of Sallow Bend and The Gulp, and bona fide kung fu master. While Kaaron remembers a story from primary school and Aaron remembers his first kiss, Joseph blows the lights in the bus station. Al chases a flasher through the streets of London. Time is discussed, as is nostalgia, and the sadness for things in one’s life that no longer exist. Al shares his grandma’s secret past in MI5. Aaron forms The Breakfast Club of senior citizens and Kaaron serves cocktails on the veranda. Parenting advice is offered. Everyone agrees that Horror – the genre of honesty – is the BEST genre. (Take that, Fantasy!)
