What pushes someone not only to read a story but to pass it on?"

This video is a 10 minute recap of all the facts that I’ve compiled, to show you all just how well connected the show really was. I know that not everyone was satisfied with the answers we got, but I’ve found that all the dots are there for us to connect.

I hope you all enjoy!” - @SeriableJim108

I’d buy this record, wouldn’t you?
