This week:

Kimzilla and Emily decide that it’s time to go hunting for that big story. Furries! This episode is too good to fit in one hour, so it’s going to be broken up into two parts. This is part 2. Tonight we talk to Dr. Sharon Roberts who is a researcher that is focused on the science behind Anthropomorphism.

Haha....Good ol' Monty Python!

Haha yes!

I made the Monty Python mice reference last week on your board
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:03pm ultradamno:

Would mouse furries fear owl furries?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:03pm JakeGould:

Is that a pic of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:06pm Sully, A British Fox:

@ultradamno Depends how comitted the mice are to the rp, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:06pm JakeGould:

What Emily said is the same about food prep people who take your money after preparing your food.

good heavens. is this one more aspect of modern life i don't need to know about? :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:09pm ultradamno:

It's a funny thing only if it's done well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:09pm dale:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:09pm melinda:

@Linda I found this more interesting than the Harry Potter show, if that helps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:10pm Linda Lee:

good! :-D
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:10pm Listener Robert:

Tommy, does WMFU come in in Neversink? In stereo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:11pm common:

Night at the opera has the funniest scene ever filmed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:12pm dale:

was it a sexy gorilla outfit from party city?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:12pm Linda Lee:

so this is animal drag?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:12pm Linda Lee:

some of us are busy enough doing drag as humans!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The WFMU Marketing Division should sell a line of furry character pajamas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:13pm duckiekiller:

squirrel scout cookies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:13pm dale:

i went to school at fredonia. supposedly they got booed off the stage of the opera house there and they used that later but no proof.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:13pm RomanDogBird:

i liked it when bob uecker called them furriers
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:14pm Sully, A British Fox:

Well for what it's worth, you've changed my mind on media coverage, Even if I'm still wary of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:14pm Linda Lee:

i see by the photo you're allowed to make up animals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:14pm dale:

furry fandom scientists should work on cancer instead. resources better used.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:16pm melinda:

I heard some people on Youtube making references to Furries as sex fetishists and I felt sort of defensive on behalf of Furries, after listening to last week's show.
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:16pm Sully, A British Fox:

@Linda We call them hybrids. And yes, It's totally allowed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:16pm Richard S:

Hello! Sorry I'm late; I was getting my laundry out of the dryer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:17pm Linda Lee:

don't we generally understand that it's pretend no matter what we do?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:17pm melinda:

Not that there's anything wrong with a sex fetish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:17pm dale:

oh - this is the wally cox dude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:17pm duckiekiller:

@ Linda Lee so true
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:19pm ultradamno:

I think a lot of people stop pretending (and playing) out of insecurity regarding their own maturity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:20pm Tommy in Neversink:

Melinda....that's where people always go with these kind of things. They don't understand something more nuanced could be going on
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:20pm Emily:

Tech gremlins, guys!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:20pm Linda Lee:

so, they then begin pretending more conventionally.
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:21pm Emily:

Sorry...oof
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:22pm Tommy in Neversink:

People seek power , I don't mean in a bad way. We want power over our reality. Creating a fantasy character or world is a way of achieving that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:23pm duckiekiller:

its hard for adults to look silly in our culture
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:24pm Linda Lee:

i personally think an awful lot of them look damn silly every day of the week!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:25pm Listener Robert:

I'm interested in the distinction between play AS a pretend character, and play WITH a pretend character, such as a doll or dummy. Late in life I revived Wolfie, my wolf doll, in play with friends. It started with my participation in the boxed RPG Toon from Steve Jackson Games. My character, illustrated by the doll (which had been in retirement since my childhood), was a hit so he kept putting in appearances, making phone calls, faxes, and e-mails, etc. He gossips about me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:27pm Linda Lee:

Robert, i was just talking with our friend Buddha In Suburbia about her bear, Nounours. he has an active social life; he's lived in Paris and New York: he has his own warddrobe, a facebook page..
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:28pm Listener Robert:

There was the interview on "This American Life" with Duckie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:31pm duckiekiller:

@ Linda Lee, I agree! unfortunately I don't think you and I are using the same ruler most people use.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I wonder if people bring their furry pets to conventions ... with furry costumes on the pets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:32pm Linda Lee:

i can't seem to hear what's being said without filtering it through a trans sensibility. some of us embody our truth in public & because we're seen to pretend, we're murdered for it.
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:33pm sim:

Isn't creating and inhabiting a fantastical persona an escape from reality?
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:33pm Kamp Climax:

Visual: Watching Tom Brady at presser speak about upcoming game against Chargers in a $500 hoodie (sound on mute); Audio: Kim and Emily and a discussion on flurries and fandom.
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:33pm Sully, A British Fox:

Acrilic fibers tend to melt. The backing material's probably flamable though. And the cuts to vision and mobility won't help in a burning studio.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:33pm Kamp Climax:

I love life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:34pm ultradamno:

I recall a Justified episode with a furry dying at a brothel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:34pm Linda Lee:

well, then we circle back to definitions of 'reality'..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:35pm melinda:

I wonder if there's any overlap between Furry and Otherkin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:35pm Richard S:

Anyone else remember the Bob's Burgers episode "The Equestranauts"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:36pm Linda Lee:

what is this 'broken people' she keeps referring to?
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:37pm Kamp Climax:

Why is "broken people" even a precept?
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:37pm Sully, A British Fox:

@melinda There is. Therians more so, but some Otherkin too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:39pm Linda Lee:

oh dear. fantasy is a book, reality is not-a-book? how about Americans' conviction that we live under a democratic system? what is that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:40pm Linda Lee:

@Kamp Climax ~ no kidding!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:41pm duckiekiller:

maybe "broken" means unable to be comfortable in their "skin"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:41pm Linda Lee:

she said 'roaring conversation'! :-)
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:41pm sim:

Defining reality creates a map of the territory. Engaging reality becomes the great adventure.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:41pm Kamp Climax:

Dr. Roberts made herself clear later on in the interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:42pm Richard S:

HOW CAN ANYONE NOT LOVE THE MARX BROTHERS????
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:42pm Linda Lee:

'everyone else in the world' is *not* miserable all the time! goodness me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:43pm duckiekiller:

@ sim yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:43pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Banana Splits looked like they were having a good time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:44pm duckiekiller:

@ Ken-oh my god someone else remembers the Banana Splits!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:45pm ultradamno:

The Banana Splits DEFINITELY made everyone else in the world seem miserable by comparison.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:45pm Linda Lee:

i remember them very well. i couldn't help thinking of very, very hot people trapped in those furry suits under show lights. i could barely watch!
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:46pm Emily:

@Linda Lee I’m with you there. I’m not! For example...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:46pm dale:

are there posers who pray on these folk and are considered faux furries?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:47pm ultradamno:

And this guy from Far Out Space Nuts: 1.bp.blogspot.com...
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:47pm Kamp Climax:

Yes, they are called sport mascots.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:47pm dale:

a wink a blink. and a nod.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:48pm Linda Lee:

i had the same trouble with Lidsville!
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:48pm sim:

The supermundane. Oxymoronic? Like the most boring number would no longer be a boring number.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:49pm ultradamno:

Well, bringing up sports mascots makes me want to bring up Gritty again: files.greatermedia.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:51pm Linda Lee:

Dr. Roberts is highly invested in furry legitimacy, for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The koo koo kookiest!
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:52pm Kamp Climax:

Linda Lee is spot on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:52pm Linda Lee:

the ki-ki-kickiest.
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:52pm sim:

I crave a subset categorization of furries called Muppet-Americans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:52pm Richard S:

These past few shows have been AMAZING.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:53pm ultradamno:

As far as being miserable under hot lights, it's probably a lot harder for an act like Gwar...
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:53pm Kamp Climax:

No, no, no, please name the Gen X movie that your going to put up with the Marx Bros.? do not end show till I hear what that movie is?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:54pm Linda Lee:

either way it takes a bit of disposable income.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:54pm Kamp Climax:

Do not end the show, I must hear what that movie is?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:55pm Linda Lee:

i'll bet they don't know yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:55pm duckiekiller:

First episode to the last: These are the people sitting next to you on the subway, driving your cabs, waiting on you at restaurants, living next to you in the burbs, wake up to our diversity!
  Wed. 1/9/19 7:55pm sim:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:55pm Richard S:

Breakfast Club? Dazed and Confused?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:56pm ultradamno:

Repo Man?
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 7:56pm Kamp Climax:

Maybe Willie Wonka, I will offer up that one and Duckiekiller hit the nail on the head.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:57pm melinda:

I never really liked John Hughes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:57pm dale:

friskies treats and hartz flea collars are catering to the furry community.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 7:57pm Linda Lee:
