Radio Interview about Furry Fandom on Dublin 98 FM

Earlier today, Dublin 98 FM did an interview about the Furry Fandom with unclekage. (They originally contacted me, but I don't make the best spokesman, so I referred them to Kage. :-) )

Thanks to Audio Hijack, I managed to capture the stream to disk. It is available for a short time:

http://www.claws-and-paws.com/files/Dublin_98_FM_Interview_with_Uncle_Kage_November_8th,_2006.mp3

The file is about 14 Megs and the interview lasts for about 9 minutes. Be sure to listen for some amusing commentary from the hosts after the interview.

[Update: omnibahumut made a transcript of the interview. It can be read in his LiveJournal.]

Kage is the best spokesperson we could possibly have, but we will never truly deserve him.

Oh, bah! I try to be a good spokesman because it is something I believe in. And you certainly deserve someone to believe in you.

(especially someone with training in dealing with the media!)

It's not so much that you have training in dealing with the media, heck, I have training in dealing with the media, and I wouldn't come off sounding nearly as good as you do.

You have a certain finesse when dealing with the media that seems to come naturally to you.

Regardless of how deserving we are or are not of you, we are lucky to have someone as talented and intelligent as you to represent us to the media.

I'll have to agree with you on that although I don't know him as of yet.Great speach and you summed up everything verry well. :)

A really nice and informative interview for anyone who knows nothing about furrys.

That was great. Very nice interview. Thanks for capturing it.

BTW, can I add you?
I saw you on Kage`s post about the radio show and after checking out your page, noticed that you run Claws and Paws. That was actually one of the very furst furry sites I visited when I joined the fandom. I was just like "whoa! No way!" One of those reactions ya know? Plus you sound like an interesting person yourself.

> BTW, can I add you?

Sure, feel free. I rarely make locked entries, so most of what I post is publicly readable.

Hmmm...LJ ate my last comment.

Mind if I crosspost this interview to my personal Journal? Kage does a fantasic job explaining the fandom....much better than I ever could.

Also, do you have any problems with my downloading a private copy of the interview to my laptop?

I have no problems with either, feel free.

Thank you!

Hah, I loved how obviously dodged the word "yiff". They were trying to get it out of him, but he nicely dodged it.
