    Thanks for another great podcast and for dilligently trawling the ‘net for DW fan stuff (because I know I wouldn’t) and bringing to our attention some real gems. I think you were maybe a teensy bit harsh on Bex19’s video because it was clearly lovingly and expertly assembled (Billie’s contrasting hair-dos and clothes notwithstanding). Honestly, my mind boggles at how hard it must be to find these clips and then put them together so well.
