New life for Clone High, fake life for VTubers
Elizabeth explains the strange resurrection of an early-2000s cartoon, and then introduces Karen to the ever-uncannier world of manufactured entertainers. She totally wrecked her YouTube history for this, so enjoy!

- JFK compilation
- Nothing bad ever happens to the Kennedys
