FWIW in 2016

It’s the time of year when lists recapping the last solar orbit come out. Most of these lists are run of the mill, but this time we decided to jump in with our 2016 summary of FWIW. We hope you find it interesting!


2016 saw the show shift from Season 5 to Season 6. Despite some setbacks, we released about the same number of episodes we released on 2015. This year we launched our Patreon page, overhauled the FWIW site, and upgraded our mixer board to a new USB audio interface from Zoom. We also launched a new regular segment, Get Psyched! with Dr. Nuka, and saw the return of Fifty Sheds of Grey. Finally, we also launched our Telegram chat, letting us connect with listeners any time, any place. (You can join the chat, too! Check the FWIW home, it’s linked on the sidebar). Here’s an in-depth look at Fur What It’s Worth in 2016:
