Long time listener, first time reviewer. Love the podcast. Good interviews. Great blend of different content. Dark Side of the Ring is on my rewatchable list. Doesn’t get much better.
Your lucky to be alive. That Chaulk guy. I graduated from Westwood too but 1980. And my Dads in Gimli. And the car thing. Weird.
