r/LifeWithAlthaar Exists!

r/LifeWithAlthaar Exists!

December 6, 2020

PodBean subscribers and other readers...

A Reddit fan of Life With Althaar at r/AudioDrama suggested that there should be an r/LifeWithAlthaar subreddit, and I was dubious. They responded, basically, “If you build it, they will come.” And, hey, doesn’t cost us anything, so I did.

If you’re on Reddit, and have any questions, thoughts, or comments for myself, Berit, or anyone in the Althaar/GCW community, feel free to put them out there! We’re reading and responding.
