Carpool

In 2007, I saw a production of Wicked starring Nigel Planer as the Wizard, and in my search for a clip of it on YouTube later, I discovered Robert Llewellyn’s YouTube channel.

New from Channel Flip

I discovered Channel Flip in a much earlier version of it, probably about three or four years ago, because Robert Llewellyn had a channel on there where he talked about machinery called Machine of the Week Report. I wasn’t into machinery, but I noticed that Channel Flip had a lot of cool shows. For those…
