One of the more common themes that tends to come up on this regards the fact that being a furry can be expensive! And there's few better examples of the cost of being a member of the fandom than furry conventions. For a lot of members, this is one of if not the most expensive thing they participate in while being a furry, but it's not uncommon for furs to look at their bank statement after attending one and wonder "where did all that money go?" On this episode, we explain the answer to that inquiry, and explain the reasons why furry conventions can be expensive to go to! And of course we also discuss ways to make it cheaper as well, because every furry should try to attend a con, because they are just that special.Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Furry, Explained (hey, that's this show!): Ways to Enjoy your Stay at a Furry ConventionFurry, Explained: What is a Furry Convention and How to Enjoy Attending OneSolarSaber: Your First Furry ConventionThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

One of the most fun things that furries do is create and design their fursonas! Not only is it just an amusing challenge, it's also an important one, as the fursona that one has in the fandom acts as their identity as a furry, and therefore is how everyone else in the fandom preceives of them! Because of this, it can be worth taking some time ensuring that the design of a fursona is done with some care. So on this episode, we explain why it's worth not rushing the design process, and go over some tips on how to make a 'sona that one can be happy with for a long time! Which is the goal at the end of the day, to be a furry as long as possible. At least the way I see it...Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Pocari Roo: Tips for Fursuit DesignFurry, Explained (this very show!): How to Make a FursonaThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

It should be no surprise that I talk to a lot of people about the furry fandom. But one of the questions I get the most frequently regards fursuits and more specifically, why the cost so much! It's a question that I've answered very generically in the past, but upon further review, the answer is a lot more complicated than it may seem. And this show likes complicated, so on this episode, we explain the various reasons why fursuits cost what they do, and how anyone can get a piece of the fursuiting experience for a fraction of the cost of a full suit!Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Stormi the Folf: Why are Fursuits so ExpensiveHow Much Does it Cost: FursuitsThe Cost of a Full-Body SuitThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

It's hard to dispute the idea that the furry fandom needs the internet; it wouldn't be where it is today without it! But, in the grand scheme of things, the internet hasn't been around for that long, and we as a society are still working out collective rules on how we want to act and communicate whilst on it. The furry fandom is no different in this endeavor, and while it too continues to adjust as time goes on, there are some general guidelines that follow what a majority of furs would agree to be common courtesy. On this episode, we explain some of these online courteous acts and more importantly, why their important to review.

One of the most common questions that furries find themselves answering is what got them to be a furry in the first place. And for good reason; almost everyone has a unique story of how they made their way to this rather weird community. We've discussed before on this show about why one may want to join, but how one ends up joining can be equally as interesting. On this episode, we explain the different ways how someone goes from a regular person to assimilating themselves in this weird, fascinating fandom!

Our quest to uncover the secrets of furry fandom original species is finally coming to a close, and what better way to end than with one of the most popular original species out there! Yes, we saved explaining the Protogen for last, not because they are the "best" original species, but one that best encompasses everything that we have looked at that makes original species in the furry fandom so special.Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Malice-Risu: The Complete Guide of Primagens and ProtogensFandom.com: ProtogenRael the Protogen: Lore of the ProtogensThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

Our journey looking at furry fandom original species continues, and things get a little interesting this time around. The Wickerbeast is another fantastic example of the creativity this fandom can provide, but today we focus no so much on the species itself, but the community surrounding it, and how in many ways, calling them the Wickerbeast community isn't the most apt description after all...Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Wickerbeast Home PageWickerbeast Official BlogBetaEtaDelota: The WickerbeastThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

As we continue our journey looking at furry fandom original species, we find ourselves explaining one that has a lot of information on it. And there is a lot, so much so that it can be hard to find just one thing that makes the Sergal so special. So we spare no expense, and spend nearly a half an hour talking about what makes the Sergal so out-of-this-world!

We set the bar pretty high by starting our investigation of fandom original species with the Dutch Angel Dragon. But there are some species in the fandom that may not be as well known, but can fill a particular, important niche that no other animal in the fandom has had the opportunity to do so. And that's what makes the Manokit not only a great furry fandom original species, but a great example of how the fandom finds ways to ensure everyone can be represented by a fun, furry creature!Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Wikifur: ManokitThe Official Mankit Species GuidebookDubMutt: Official Manokit InfoThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

When choosing a species for a fursona or character, the vast array of real and fictional animals just doesn't suffice for many furries. To solve this, some furries make their own fictional creatures, and allow other members of the furry fandom to use them for their creations as well! On this episode of Furry Explained, we start a new series on furry fandom original species! We'll be taking a deep dive into five species examples, but to start, it's good to define what exactly an original species is in the context of the furry fandom at large.Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Wikifur: Original SpeciesStormi the Folf: Original Species!Solarsaber: Original Species in the Furry Fandom!Thank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

Part of the reason why the furry fandom has been around for so long is that it's traditions have evolved and adapted with the times. However, like a lot of traditions, that's hasn't been without some pushback, and the dissolving of some furry traditions have been met with some pushback as the fandom continues to grow. On this episode, we explain one of the more well-known traditions that is starting to fall out of favor with furries in the fandom: breaking the magic. We not only take a look at what that phrase means, but also present both sides of the idea to see why some may want to avoid it's increasing popularity and also why it's so popular now in the first place. And for the special few who happened to have heard this episode last week, enjoy your week off from the show!

Along with all the art and fursuits and cute anthropomorphic animals, one of the biggest draws the furry fandom has is the opportunity it provides to cultivate relationships! And that is not just reserved for meeting significant other;  the fandom allows for all types of relationships to originate and grow stronger overtime. In fact, for many furries, most if not all of their interpersonal relationships come from other furry fandom members! On this episode, we explain some of the more common relationships that can come from the fandom, but more importantly, also take a look at why they work so well in the fandom specifically!

Attending a furry convention can be one of the most fun activates one can do as a furry! These large gatherings of members of the furry fandom are seemingly filled with parties, dancing, and hanging out with friends. But despite what they may seem at face value, the most common activity that occurs at cons aren't parties or dances. They are actually based in education, where furries present to other furries about things regarding the fandom... Kinda what we do here. On this episode, we explain what these presentations, or panels, are, what their role is at furry conventions, and how you could go about doing one for yourself! Which can be a nice change of pace, before going back to partying late into the night...Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:WikiFur: Furry Convention PanelStormi the Folf: How to Run a Panel at a Furry ConventionCheck out any schedule of a previous or upcoming furry convention to see examples of different panels that are givenThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!

What are Furry Props

What are Furry Props

There are many things that furries can have to externally express their connection to their fursona. But typically, these fursona artifacts are large and all-encompassing like a fursuit, or something small and easily discarded, like stickers. But there is a middle ground, and is something that many fursuiters carry around with them to augment their performance as their fursona. On this episode, we explain what these middle-ground objects, otherwise known as props, actually are, and why they can be special for anyone to have, not just fursuiters!

To most furries, being a part of the fandom is simply a hobby they do for fun. But, with all the money that gets thrown around in this fandom, it's not hard to find something that a majority of members of the fandom need, and provide that for them... for a price. Unsurprisingly, this works, and there are a lot of furries out there that make their side hustle or primary job providing goods and services for the furry fandom. Which is great! If you love what your job, you'll never work a day in your life... right? On this first episode of 2022, we explain how businesses in the fandom work and some examples of how some furries have truly made their biggest hobby into, potentially, their biggest source of income!

It's no secret that furry conventions are one of the ultimate ways to enjoy the furry fandom. In fact they are so impactful, we really don't want them to end. But they do eventually end, and that crash from the high of being with immersed in the fandom can be tough to handle, so much so that it's identifiable by name.

That is, until the next furry convention, where the cycle begins anew again...Follow Me On Twitter for Updates and Info about the Show: @FinnThePantherSources and Stuff to Check Out:Wikifur: Post-Con DepressionFurScience: Post-Convention DepressionAce of Hearts Fox: About Post-Con DepressionThank you for checking out the show! iTunes/Apple Podcast listeners: make sure to leave a rating and review!
