The Columbo Confab Podcast

Dec 29, 2018

Our fearless podcasters face the daunting task of reviewing A Riddle for Puppets (1979), one of the few episodes of Mrs. Columbo still widely available.  Something's not quite right with ventriloquist Noel Abbott (Jay Johnson), who chisels his mentor to death and is convinced the only witness to the crime is his victim's puppet, Clown.  Is A Riddle for Puppets worthy to be considered Columbo canon?  Or should it be reserved for a midnight showing during a weeknight?  Listen in and find out what Steve and Sean thought!
