We recap keynote events of two conventions with help from one member who had a presence at either con. Both conventions happened on the very same weekend - Furry Weekend Atlanta (FWA) and Motor City Fur Con (MCFC).

Topics covered:

  • FWA's laundry list of controversial events, from that infamous lobby incident to one dealer who'd leave a sour taste in viewers' mouths, and more complaints
  • How one donation at the MCFC auctions stirred such a reaction of joy, courtesy of our own first timer Folkvar
  • The Bully Hunters operation, was it for something noble or did it go bust?

April 20, 2018

Originally aired on April 1, 2018

In this episode, we find out exactly what a trainwreck in production feels like as we experience woes with a drunk host.

Topics for this show include:

  • Huffington Post writes an article smearing our group and concedes that "Nazi Furs" are the rational ones
  • The trend on furry Twitter, #PlusSizeFursuiter blows up and lots of fat pride and defending fatness is abound
  • Furry artists on Patreon, and one case where an artist declines a commission for a bizarre reason
  • Furry Visual Novel games. What's their appeal and why is it that the fandom can churn these types of games out in large numbers?

April 13, 2018

Originally aired on March 16, 2018

With a short-handed panel, we hosted a show with topics both difficult and easy to talk about.

Topics for this episode include:

  • The death of RC The Fox and the circumstances surrounding the tragic event
  • Has mob rule in the furry fandom and beyond gone too far?
  • World of Warcraft introduces a fennec-like character to the game. Now Horde players can get their fix of furryness! As if that game needed more furry appeal...
  • The death of Toys R Us and what it means. Those stores were an integral part of many childhoods.

April 13, 2018

Despite some sudden undesirable circumstances being thrown in our face such as losing our Discord chat and one host having a rocky start, we pushed on and published this episode!

Topics for this episode include:

  • The Anthro New England 2018 experience as recounted by Toony. The con was famed possibly for having some of the most overbearing hotel security ever.

RR Ep 5 - Blood Sports

RR Ep 5 - Blood Sports

April 13, 2018

Originally aired on February 19, 2018

We try out live Youtube streams for the first time going forward. We also play hypotheticals with some novel ideas and wonder what it's like if they turned furry.

Topics for this episode include:

  • The Texas Furry Fiesta 2018 Experience, as retold by Nio. Here, he shares what happened in his attendance there.
  • Which TV shows would make for good entertainment if reimagined as a furry version?
  • The current state of the comics industry and the direction it's heading in.
  • Internet Bloodsports, the hot new debate style sloating around Youtube. Maybe we could bring the furry community to it as a way of settling out drama while being entertained.

RR Ep 4 - No to Political Correctness!

RR Ep 4 - No to Political Correctness!

April 13, 2018

Originally aired on February 10, 2018

In this episode, we debut our intro song and our group website. Our topics this time are centered around the theme of political correctness going too far both inside and outside of furry.

Topics for this episode include:

  • Furnal Equinox 2018 cancels FirestormSix's DJ set, prompting him to not attend this year. The con scraps the fursuit parade. Is this a case of cultural appropriation too far? And is the justification of the parade being scrapped fair because it's a logistics nightmare?
  • We make fun of Leafland... err, Canada, where they changed the national anthem to something gender neutral. The Furry Raiders can throw in a few improvements, much better than the Canadian Government ever could. Plus more ribbing due to Canada's messed up prisons
  • We discuss whether redesigning childhood favourite furry cartoons such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is such a good idea.
  • Some drama happening because of the sexuality of certain Harry Potter characters and Rowling having a few hiccups about it.

  • Jolt
  • Tenacious

RR Ep 1 - Furry Fandom Divided

Before the Raiders podcast formally started, we figured we would have a casual discussion within our group that would be recorded.

Hosts:

  • Foxler
  • Orion
