I recall not long ago when Twitch.tv streamed all the episodes, in order. At one point 200K people were watching, more than any other streamer, game or personality. More than DOTA, more than CS:GO, more than League. Over 700,000 followers, more than 14 million views on some episodes.

I cannot tell you why, but these facts warm even my cold, black heart.

I was one of the people watching. It was a coming together of a many cross sections of society, all because of a single person. And that is, and was, beautiful.
