Season 3, Episode 17 - Furries
Alright gang, this week we're taking a look at the world of furries.
With the help of some willing furries, I learn about 'fursonas' and how they can be either be a mirror for somebodies personality or a sense of escapism.
What role a pursuit plays in all of this and whether being a furry is an identity, a lifestyle, a hobby or all of the above.
We also touch upon the possibilities of sinking too deep into an invented character and whether or not furry culture itself warrants the sexual reputation it has.
