Furry writers talk about writing and furry.
|Host(s)||Kyell Gold, K.M. Hirosaki|
|Launch date||July 22nd, 2009|
Unsheathed is a podcast about furry writing, hosted by K.M. Hirosaki and Kyell Gold. Engineering and technical support are provided by Kit Silver. Early on it was billed as a furry erotica podcast, though in practice, the majority of the material covered applies to writing in general. As of September 18th, 2012 there have been 92 regular episodes, and seven Unsheathed Presents episodes. Through May 2011, new episodes were being released at a rate of approximately once per week, but were sporadic for the latter part of 2011 and early 2012, with most of the released episodes being live convention recordings. As of September 2012, more regular updates have resumed.
Since Summer of 2012, the hosts have also been conducting live episodes on Livestream where viewers can ask questions and prompt discussion topics in live chat. The episodes are roughly a half hour in length, and are archived on the Livestream site for viewing after the fact. There is no set broadcast schedule for these episodes, but they are typically held on Mondays, and are announced ahead of time via the hosts' respective Twitter accounts.
The Unsheathed Presents episodes feature a story reading. Thus far, all stories featured have been written by one of the hosts.
Guests who have made appearances on the show include Not Tube, Flain Falcon, Jeff Eddy, Rikoshi, Buck Hopper, FuzzWolf, foozzzball, Savrin, Lovejoy, Donryu, Colson, Jakebe, Zia McCorgi, Cyanni, Catherynne Valente, and Dick Power.
