Radio Free Housepets! (RFHP!, formerly Housepets! Radio) is a weekly webcast and news-hub with topics centered around anthro webcomics. RFHP! is Hosted by SliceOfDog, former hosts include Nick Crotser, David Cramer, and Gary Shi (Lucarionation). It was co-created and is produced by artist Nick Crotser.
Due to the actions[clarify] of Shi between January 19th and the 21st,[when?] irreparable damage[clarify] was done to the already struggling webcast, a vote was taken and it was decided to put RFHP! on an indefinite hiatus. It is not yet known if RFHP! will ever return.
RFHP!'s theme song is a specially mixed version of Charger Paris Mirage by Conelrad. RFHP!'s official mascot is "Scruffy Joey", an officially approved variant of the character "Joey" from Housepets!.
Episodes are recorded and mixed on a computer running Ubuntu Linux 12.04 (LTS) and a mid-2011 MacMini.
Back-Up storage is divided between a PowerMac G4 running OSX 10.4 and an HP Proliant server running Debian 7.
SliceOfDog uses a Blue Yeti microphone.
Dismissal of Gary Shi
On January 19, 2013 Shi's posting privleges were temporarily revoked network-wide as punishment for multiple code of conduct violations. In the preceding few days Shi began making personal attacks on the remaining admins, and sabotaged the webcast's Facebook page, resulting in its deletion. This resulted in Shi's permanent dismissal as a member of RFHP.NET on January 21st.[when?]
