Why Am I Ryan Shacklett

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Ryan Shacklett.  Ryan has multiple fursonas with his main as Wild Acai.  For the uninitiated, that means he attends conventions and events dressed in an insanely impressive animal suite…often referred to as a “furry”.  Not only does it provide a place to explore parts of your personality, but also allows for a lot of creative expression.  Not only does he participate, but he also gets to give these experiences to others through his own multi employee company that creates these impressive suites.. Help us grow by sharing with someone!
