Jenny McCarthy Interviews Dr Roberts for her SiriusXM Show!

Jenny McCarthy wanted to know more about the fandom, and like most who are curious, started with the misbelief that it’s a fetish, but she was kind enough to have a Furscientist on to explain it! The show was live and broadcast on SiriusXM Radio Channel 109, but for those of you who don’t have a SiriusXM Satellite subscription, the Jenny McCarthy Show was kind enough to give as a copy, and let us post it here, so everyone could listen.
