I can't believe they left that story in.

I did note it in the tags, I couldn’t resist.

When Michael mentioned it online I thought for sure it was going to be about the guy in Enumclaw.

That story stands on its own as a perfect three minutes of podcasting.

It's what we all remember best from this episode, right? It was a good episode! I enjoyed it! But if you asked me what the most vivid section was...

Well I can tell you that the first time I screamed was when Wolf told Klein at their first meeting ‘you look like someone who’s been raped’. Not the last time.

Ironically I have had the ebook of Doppelgänger out from the library for a couple weeks before this came out but I hadn’t started it and now I am desperately trying to finish it effort the loan expires.

I got about halfway through before the library yanked it back and I was okay with that; I felt like I'd read enough.

I can’t find the invite link for the discord; is it only for the higher tiers?

Maybe that's why Patreon is down. We're all rushing to see the horsecuddlin'.
