IARP is an ongoing study of the furry fandom with team members in three universities, and the first such group to have our research published in a scientific journal. Further, our team travels to several furry conventions and has a growing number of friends in the furry fandom. As such, we are often invited to share our findings with journalists, websites, documentarians, and entertainers. Here’s a selection of interviews with IARP team members, blog and podcast appearances, and works citing IARP studies, as well as several of our popular “Furry Psychology” panels from the conventions we’ve attended.

Nuka is a regular contributor on the furry podcast “Fur What It’s Worth,” joining Roo and Tugs when the hosts need urgent furry psychology and research!
