Howldy!

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but I have been working with Dusty and several other members of Therian-Guide to create a series of "podcasts" that will hopefully serve as an informational resource for the community.

As we continue the series, I'd like to branch out to get feedback and content from other sources, such as WL, to help build the community feel for future episodes. That said, recordings have only been with TG members to-date, but we're still working on fine-tuning some things anyways.

If it's fine, I'd also like to link future prompts for feedback or suggestions here, but for now, I'm just gonna dump the previous episodes.

I'm not sure if the forums will allow for various videos to be posted, so I'll direct to the episodes on YouTube. Some are also on SoundCloud, and we're looking for other places to publish them.

------------- Episodes -------------

Episode 1: "The Life of a Therian in the Real World" - a bit of my background, and probably not the pilot episode you'd expect. This touches some deeper subjects and sets the stage for future talks, and hopefully gives some food for thought.

Episode 2: "Awakening" - a discussion on what the awakening process is like, from Dusty's perspective.

https://youtu.be/-v8Oi47sXR8

Episode 3: "How the Therian Community has Changed" - we're joined by BearX who describes what the community was like as it began to emerge, how it has evolved over time, and where it is now.

https://youtu.be/VZhBsAlDsWQ

Episode 4: "Therianthropy and Religion" - Dusty speaks with Lycan regarding how religion and therianthropy clash - or don't - and how to find peace with the two.

https://youtu.be/ybhw7RxqS24

Episode 5: "Paganism and Therianthropy" - Elinox joins us to explains aspects of paganism, how they intersect with therianthropy, how they don't, and some things that are confused with therianthropy but can perhaps help some others understand our experience a little better.

https://youtu.be/AEnPLtgJpsw

Episode 6: "Theriomythics" - Shuual explains what his experience is like as a Kitsune, and how such a creature fits in with definitions of "therian", "otherkin" and more. Is it about the creature, or more about the experiences?

https://youtu.be/kAMwElRRrmU

Episode 7: "What? The Howls!" - Stormdancer and BearX discuss the history of Howls with me and we dig into what makes a good Howl. When did they start? When did they start to die off a little, and why? Why are they important? And, of course, why aren't they called "Caterwauls?"

We realize there are some audio quality issues and ask that you bear with us. I have absolutely no experience doing these and I struggle with intense anxiety in helping with these, and other staff members are also working to overcome similar things in helping with production, but the intention is important enough that we're all trying to produce helpful content.

That said, constructive feedback is certainly appreciated. Feel free to reach out to myself, or the others involved with this project, if you have any insights or things to share.

Thanks, and we hope you enjoy!

This is great, thank you for sharing! If you're looking to branch out, I'm more than happy to offer my knowledge/experiences! I'm not as active as I used to be or want to be, but I can always be reached via Twitter, Telegram, Discord, or email.

Sorry for non-response! I don't think I ever got a notification. Eep. I followed you on Twitter and will certainly keep you in mind for future content!

We're still working on getting these things out more consistently, so it may take a while, but I'd like for them to become a community effort in time. ^^

Howldy! So uh, I haven't updated this thing in a while. Sorry about that!

I've actually branched the Therian Talks off into a second podcast which has voices from across the community (not just TG), and we've published the first four sneppurrsodes on Podbean and Youtube.

https://werearewepodcast.podbean.com/

Snep 1: A general intro sneppurrode with lots of introductions and background stories. Feel free to skip if you're already familiar with therianthropy, since it likely covers a lot of what you already know.

Snep 2: Coping with Covid. Recorded much earlier this year, it's our cast's effort to explore the state of things and offer advice.

Snep 3: What, the Howls! Similar to the Therian Talks episode on this, but with a dash of "Sneppurrsode 2 means things have changed." How can the community work to continue to build itself when social distancing and isolation are the new norm?

Snep 4: Spurrituality. Intended as a high-level overview of some spiritual principles, and reflections on how things like spirituality have a place in the modern state of things.

The end of Snep 4 has some bonus content in the form of "Dear Badgie" - our new advice column with Wolfmage/Stormdancer, and meant to bring a bit of goofiness back while we're touching more serious subjects.

-------------

Additional updates:

Therian Talk 8 has been posted to YouTube and the link is here:

https://youtu.be/UHQeIW1FKE8

Topic: therianthropy in media. What are misconceptions? What are things we've done right? How should therians move forward with being understood by the outside world?

Therian Talk 9: Gear - is it necessary to have gear to be a therian? What IS therian gear, why does it matter, and who does it matter to? We discuss how "gear" can be vital to self-expression and connection and question when it's more of a furry thing than a therian thing.

Clicky here: https://youtu.be/FcLRnZLKedw

(I'm working on getting the Talks converted over to PodBean also, for those who want a more traditional podcast experience).

-------------

Sneppurrsode 5 of Were Are We is set to be recorded this weekend. In this sneppurrsode, we'll blend the topic of Snep 4 (Spurrituality) with Therian Talk 9 (Gear) to discuss gear in a spiritual context. Why is it important to some people? Could a fursuit be considered spiritual gear? Do some of these things differ from how pelts, headdresses and similar spiritual garb has been considered and used, traditionally?

Feel free to leave questions and I purromise I'll try to do better at checking here. I think I don't get e-mail notifications, ack. I'd appurrciate it if someone could ping me if I seem to drop off the face of the planet. XP

On that note, the Were Are We podcast could indeed use a voice from WereList as well, to help further expand the community feel of these podcasts and to make sure discussions capture some of WL's culture and community.

Anoulf (sorry, can't remember how to tag heh) - not sure if you still may be interested or if you purrhaps know of someone who could serve as a community representative for this project.

One thing, I'd like to ensure whoever it is is somewhat established here - someone who's been around a while, and can help share a well-rounded perspective of WL's insights, what the community needs, and more.

That's enough from me for now. Again, sorry for disappurring. I'm a cat. It's a thing. XP

Hoping to hear from you all soon!

Not sure if we could help out or not with anything but we'd love to offer what we can to the podcast.

Forexample, if you need any source materials for any reason, feel free to ask. We have a good chuck of the stuff that is out there. Everything from academic stuff to books to radio casts to news clips and more.

We're not sure what else we could offer to the podcast but if there is anything you think we could offer, please feel free to contact us.

Sneppurrsode 5 is up!

I don't know how to tag people here (gah). This time, I'm joined by BlueWolf, Stormdancer/ WolfmageX, BearX and Blackpaws.

This sneppurrsode centers around gear, spirituality and therianthropy, and digs a bit deeper than the previous Therian Talk or Sneppurrsode went. A more personal exploration.

Feel free to recommend topics! Otherwise we'll babble about what we babble about ha ha.

Hmm, also curious - can the name of this thread be changed to "Therian Podcasts" or something more generic? While some of what I post comes from TG, the other podcast isn't as specific.

There's also a chance we'll help hosting the Inner Wild podcast archive on our podbean account sometime soon.

Thanks!
