    Hey guys, great show. This was my first time listening and now I’m downloading more to get methrough my workday. I’ve got to comment on your reference to furries though. You stated that furries are people who have sex in animal costumes. This is basically spreading media hype. It’s like saying a gay man is someone who wears leather chaps and loves fisting. A furry is actually a fan of anthropomorphics, or animal characters given human attributes such as the characters in watership down or Mickey Mouse. Sure some people in the fandom can sexualize it, as in any community, but it is by far not what defines us as a group. a majority of furries are gay. Maybe you guys could do a podcast about it. 🙂

    • We’ve begged the Chicago furries to come on the podcast, still waiting to hear back from them!

      Just because someone isn’t on the show doesn’t mean we haven’t asked them. A lot of people feel awkward when talking about their sexual activities.

      I’ve personally gotten it on with a sexy furry, and I don’t think its an exaggeration to say the main thing about it is sex in costumes. Obviously there’s a deeper level and interest, but let’s take a look at what the majority of these guys are doing, flirting while wearing a mascot costume.

      I like your description of it as an anthropomorphic animal identity, that’s totally spot on.

      What a lot of people don’t realize is that these guys are usually in great shape, being athletes themselves and probably got turned on to it when being the mascot of their school team.

      I heart furries!

    I loved how you brought these guys out of their shell as the podcast progressed. Wonderful personalities (I could see you bringing them on for other stuff than just their Gay Gaming get together… maybe for Tech / Nerdy stuff or even an opposing perspective on younger guys in the gay community and what they do for alternative fun since I don’t think a lot of nerds do a ton of Bar Hopping. Maybe even Nerd Dating. In either case I love how you keep upping your game and keeping the show fresh.

    PS… I just clicked on their link thinking I would find all the hot gamers displayed. Instead it took me to a message board. How Geeky is that? 😉
