'Unleashing the Inner Beast'

I was recently interviewed by writer Tim Richards for an Age feature, 'Unleashing the inner beast'.  It's about the strange world of furries: anthropomorphic animal characters, and the folks who dress up as them.  A sample:
When we mix man and animal, we get to play a little. They're still very human stories, but in a parallel universe, where fables and legends are alive. This can help us to see our familiar human condition with fresh eyes; and realise what virtues we value, or ideals we prize. Sometimes an animal is more obviously human than a human.
