02:07:17. Rob MacLennan. Apart from the hat, is there one piece of wardrobe which is mandatory for the proper Bard-like appearance?

02:08:25. Rival Guy. This weekend was the Extra Life charity game stream marathon. What is a game (video, board, whatever) that you could play for 24 straight hours and not get sick of?

02:14:41. Casey Lee. I have a question for the Bards about the film The Little Mermaid. The moral of the story seems very offensive to women. This is not a joke, but I honestly find the film offensive and wonder why people show this to children as it seems to teach little girls to be silent and look nice. Do you think people are so enamored with Disney that they just give it a pass on everything they make or is there something else at work here?
