Episode 3 – Media Influences: Books and Comics

The third episode of the podcast and the start of a three part series on things that have influenced the cast over the years, and has being a member of the Furry Fandom impacted the media we consume? The first episode covers books and comics that were enjoyed while growing up, and then tales that have been enjoyed post-Furry. This is not intended to be a deep dive into any of the topics, and a lot of things are mentioned, or glossed over in the flow of conversation. With the exception of Xavier’s epic monologue on Terry Pratchett and Discworld.

If you’d like to know more about any of the things covered in this episode, there will be links in the show notes to Amazon affiliate pages. So if you fancy purchasing anything, you’ll be supporting the podcast without costing yourself any extra. Everyone’s a winner.
