“I’ve been talking to celebrities ‘furever’ and I’ve never heard as much passion as when they talk about their animals,” Scheetz said. “Celebrity Pawcast gives me a platform to ask about the one thing that they don’t often get questions on: their fur babies.”

Fans of the star-studded series will hear from the likes of ET Canada‘s Cheryl Hickey, Global News’ chief meteorologist Anthony Farnell and his famous sidekick, Storm the Weather Dog, country star Paul Brandt and Edmonton Eskimo Sean Whyte.
