SoundBits: The Popularity of Jokerette’s ‘Big Brother’ Show Is No Joke

For a woman whose recent shows have averaged more than 7,000 live listeners each – to say nothing of thousands more downloads - Cat LeDévic (aka Jokerette) is one cool cucumber. Within minutes of our request for this interview, the host of Joker’s BB Radio returned her answers, complete with a fascinating array of biographical tidbits that ran the gamut from classic teen-sex flicks to perilous Mideast adventures that sound like something out of a Jason Bourne book. Not only that, the Nashville, Tenn., resident – and onetime model who attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC – has also found time to pen a novel. But in typical Cat fashion, that 2006 thriller, titled The Scroll, is just the first in a series of three she has planned for its heroine, technical troubleshooter Maggie Purcell. In the meantime, Cat, a technical writer by day, enjoys her time at home with her companion and their six cats. (“Three Siamese, two Egyptian Maus, and one rescue, who eats nonstop,” she tells us.) By now you’re no doubt chomping at the bit to hear from Cat herself, so we shall tarry no longer.
