This is our chance to show her how much of a difference she's made in everyone's individual lives, furry or not, just by having tons of submissions.

Is that...... a babyfur on the right?
Please tell me it's not.
Well, I'll be...
I was curious so I looked. It's Baby Tugs Puppybear.
That character on the right is Tugs, one of the show's co-hosts. Tugs is a also babyfur, among many, many other things. He has also appeared on Margaret's show twice and hosted her visit to Furry Unlocked. This isn't his first dance with celebrities visiting the fandom - have you listened to their podcast?
What does your question have to do with the article at all, anyway? And what's the problem if he is? Again, have you listened to their podcast? The fact the hosts are this or that barely comes up.
The fact the hosts are this or that bearly comes up.
The fact is the host barely comes.
Well, I'll be...
I doubt most Flayrah readers are regular listeners, which is a) one reason they posted here, b) why I suggested including information about the show, and c) why our readers are responding to that, including the show's banner.
Indicating that one host is a babyfur leads to it becoming an item of discussion, just like their species… and regardless of whether that fact is relevant to the show's content. (Though given that the FWIW "focuses on exploring how fans express different parts of their personalities through their characters", it might be reasonable to guess it is relevant.)
Now that the question has been raised, it is being discussed by those who do know a thing about the show. As a result, our readers are more informed, rather than having to guess from what was said and shown in the press release.
I stand gracefully corrected. :)
"Indicating that one host is a babyfur leads to it becoming an item of discussion, just like their species… and regardless of whether that fact is relevant to the show's content."
And you can trust GreenReaper as he speaks from experience from running Inkbunny.
"Babyfur" is about a useful term as "Furry", it can indicate quite a different number and levels of interests. I've been listening to the Fur What It's Worth podcast for a long time and (aside from tripping over a word occasionally) they discuss all sorts of topics from a respectful angle. If you're worried about "babyfur stuff" (whatever you think that is) being shoved in your face on the podcast, it doesn't happen. Occasionally they'll devote an episode to a mature topic, but most episodes don't go that far, and they're always clearly marked.
Just the right one?
Be nice, Roo's still getting over his shark costume gig with Katy Perry.
Somebody tell Twisted Sister or whatever his name is to shut up.
I'm sorry, this one made me laugh.
I'm in a mood, guys.
Don't apologize, 4channers coming up with HILARIOUS names for me is a proud tradition.
Well, I'll be...
Yeah, one thing I learned back in my Portal of Evil days is crossaffliction is hard to turn into a joke name.
"Yeah, well, that was dumb, cross ... cross ... CROSSFIRE! Um, no, CROSSAFFLICTED! CROSS ... CROSS ... affiliated? I give up."
Assaffliction. Crostafarian. Crostitution. Frostiflaky. You can just call me snatch.
Assaffliction isn't bad, but then, yeah, you kind of drift off.
I think the best/worst I've gotten is Google trying to correct "crossaffliction" to "did you mean crucifiction"?
Well if you do get a crossaffliction, hopefully you'll recover in three days.
Guess I'm going to hell now.
I do a joke at work when I'm at work training new cooks; don't mix the ingredients, that makes Baby Jesus cry. It's called "cross contamination," and if there's one thing Jesus doesn't like, it's "cross contamination."
Most of them don't get it.
Edit: Also, this subthread just got ... really fucking sad, actually. We've got a recognizable celebrity on a furry podcast, and we're all making off color jokes based on our screennames.
Well, I guess if the celebrity survives this, they'll survive the pod cast.
I dunno what to say about it though, it's just a press release and the show didn't happen yet. Ms Cho is fun to tweet at sometimes.
Well I've tried some furry podcasts and didn't get too far with them. I do really enjoy some other ones. But I like furry stuff more visually and people chatting at people probably holds my attention for 10 min while most of those are 2 or 3 hours. Am I missing much?
It depends on the podcast. Many of them start with the hosts goofing around and chatting for a bit, talking about what's new and so forth, before settling into actual content. The longer the opening banter takes, the more my attention span wanders, so sometimes I skip forward. :-)
