This Sunday we have the pleasure of Tonya Song joining us again, alongside we'll also have Shooky Luka join our conversation on the return of our series on Multi-culturalism in the furry fandom. Both have had experiences within the fandom that we'd like to dig into with more detail and hope that you as listeners will also join in to add your own questions to our conversation.
Some of our focus points will also ask about cultural differences as well as lived experiences within the fandom as a whole and we'll also be delving into more detail as to how we can improve the fandom.
So join us this Sunday evening for the South Afrifur podcast, exclusive to https://furry.fm
