Fur & Loathing

11:23 AM GMT+1 on May 19, 2024

    Fur & Loathing - The journalist Nicky Woolf, behind the podcast Finding Q: My Journey into QAnon and The Sound: Mystery of Havana Syndrome is back with a bizarre and compelling new podcast investigation series. 

    It looks at an American convention for a community of furries (that’s people who dress up in anthropomorphic animal costumes), which turns to chaos after poisonous chlorine gas is set off in a stairwell in the hotel, resulting in 19 people being hospitalised. Despite being one of the largest chemical weapon attacks on American soil in the last fifty years, the poisoning was overlooked and even mocked by the news media because of where it took place. In this series Woolf digs deep and tries to work out who has been responsible.
