Almost one year ago a mish-mash monster in the Salt Lake City furry scene embarked on a journey which would change his life. Join the Fur What It’s Worth cast as they follow the journey of Hayrider, who receives his first fursuit and goes to his first cons in costume. Learn why someone would want to put on an animal costume and parade around and what its like inside. Done in the style of the famed NPR program This American Life, we bring you the most powerful episode and final release of Season 2.
New episodes resume on June 2nd, 2013! We will re-release two fan favorite episodes during the month of May.
Show bonus: Fursuit swapping, misdeliveries, and hot tub action – Syd Stoat & Monk-A share their fursuit stories.
