Interview with Pawsry Owner/ Operator of International Furry Broadcasting Service (IFBS) who since FBN announced a possible merger has been all over social media.
AW: Could you tell me a little about yourself and how you got involved in the furry community?
IFBS: I’m currently a 17-year old student, and I love playing on the piano. I’m a big mascot fan too. I found this community thru mascots.
AW: May I ask what part of the world you are from?
AW: I am in Chicago so there is a bit of a time difference. What is the furry community like in Singapore?
IFBS: It’s quite nice, we sometimes do furmeets on a ad hoc basis. We are quite tight knit here.
AW: That is good to hear. Have you ever been to Furry Lah? Singapore’s Furry Convention?
IFBS: Nope. I joined the fandom last August. I’m set to attend this year’s furry convention, Little Island Fur Con, from June 8 to 9. Little Island Fur Con this year is inaugural, after 2 years of Singapore having no furry conventions.
AW: Thanks for the information.
I guess I should ask what is on everyone’s mind “What exactly is IFBS?”
IFBS: The IFBS, short for the International Furry Broadcasting Service, strives to be the world’s very furst furry-centred broadcasting service. Imagine a television station, but 100% furry.
As of now it’s just 2 video series in my YT channel bearing the IFBS’ name, IFBS The Furry Show, a furry-oriented talk show, and IFBS The Furry Report, IFBS’ flagship news programme on the latest from the furry fandom.
AW: Very ambitious
They proposed a merger between the IFBS and the FBN
Should both sides merge, the IFBS will be focusing on furry news and content, while the FBN focus on furry music.
AW: Interesting. Any Future plans?
IFBS: For the IFBS
AW: Whatever you want to talk about
IFBS: I’ll begin making my own fursuit soon, and also I possibly will plan to go to fur-ther furry conventions next year
AW: It was nice talking to you.
IFBS: This Sunday (in Singapore) after the verdict, should both the IFBS and FBN merge, both sides will discuss about what’s going to happen, to restructure the FBN, or keep things same or something
They maybe would implement a reporter (correspondent?) system after the merger which is something to look forward to (that is if the merger is confurmed)
