#1 - Sy Sable (Mark Merlino)

Season 1, Ep. 1

Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Greymuzzle Archives! For my first episode who better to go to than one of the literal founding members of the furry fandom as we know it, Mark Merlino. Tune in to learn about what fandoms and geek culture were like in the pre-internet days, how LGBTQ+ members of nerd communities were treated during the AIDS crisis, and the experience of adult animation fans when anime and CGI first appeared on the scene.

To listen to Mark and his partner Rod O'Reilly talk more about their own experiences with furry fandom over the decade, check out their podcast Two Old Furry Fans at

  • 3. Tazel Sixpaws / Prismo Decatur

    In this episode we hear from Tazel Sixpaws, formerly Prismo Decatur. This four-armed fox or hermaphrodite hextaur has been a bright-indigo mark on the furry community for over twenty years, and it was really great to sit down and talk shop about the creative process with an experienced improviser, writer, and roleplayer. This was also the first time I was able to explore a paraphilia in depth, as Tazel is well-known for her love of multiplicity whether it be multiple limbs, multiple heads, or even multiple bodies whether they be individual clones or a shared hivemind. Also unexpectedly we got to talk a bit about independent local professional wrestling and 80s television, this is a wild one! In a good way! Catch Bloovoop Plays on Twitch, Sundays at 3pm EST, Noon PST Tazel's FurAffinity page The 'At Arms Length' webcomic by Darkwing, mentioned in this episode.The artwork used in the cover art is by Kobi LaCroix.The Greymuzzle Archives has a Telegram channel now!
