So, Mr Spohn

I think the Parahumans Propertied Worm and Ward by Wildbow would make for an outstanding any number of episodes. As far as
Guests, the hosts of We’ve Got Worm/We’ve Got Ward

This is a really fun podcast, and I always find myself looking forward to the next episode! Andrew clearly puts a lot of work and research into each episode, and that makes for a great listening experience. I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone who’s a fan of theme parks!
