I think this is a good example of a piece that maybe could have been a little differently. I'm still trying to formulate thoughts around the documentary. But it's definitely the kind of thing I'd like to deconstruct with everyone. Dave, this could be really good as it relates to the D&D documentary because I feel like this piece is a little unfocused from time to time; I want our piece to have focus.

As I'm writing, I think I'd be interested to see/hear more about the evolution of influence (like the graphic at 00:7:30).

It would be a lot more impactful, I think, to talk about one subject at a time (fashion, sports, music, movies) and possibly dive deeper into some more unknown influences. Then maybe at the end mash them all together.
