Escaping 2019: Day 1

To Listen, Click… Here


Looks like it’s that time again! Well, 2019 was a checkerboard of emotions, in that some squares were sad, some squares were angry. The key is to play your pieces correctly, turning some of those squares into happiness, or at least diversion. Perhaps that’s Chinese checkers. Regardless, Donovan and I (me, Harrison) are both big believers in the power of media, be it healing or escape or education. Big talk for John Wick 3, maybe, but don’t get me started. Or do, rather, as herein, cases will be made, tears will be shed, invites to join game will be sent.
