Jay And Miles’s X-Temperaneous Livestream

HI! Jay here! I was in Portland this past weekend, and Miles and I decided to take advantage of being in the same city with a semi-spontaneous livestream, now preserved for posterity.

Jay & Miles Storytime Special (featuring the PDX Broadsides)

In the aftermath of Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival, we sat down for a wholesome, old-fashioned read-aloud, followed by a visit (and performance!) from the PDX Broadsides!

Special thanks to Max, without whom this monstrosity would never have been possible.
