  1. Hey, great post! I’ve just started listening to the Downbelow Podcast and loved it!

    Would you mind if I reblog this on freebabylon5.com? You’ll get all the credit, I can assure you!

    • Thanks, Ben, and welcome to my blog.
      Absolutely no problem. I want the information out there. All part of the #FreeBabylon5 efforts.

      As you may see, there will be more, but I think the JMS announcement last night takes precedence re.: a new post 😉
