Plagiarism isn’t cool

This podcast stole a good chunk of their info for the hurtcore episode from a YouTuber’s (Surviving Life) 3-part documentary on hurtcore. Scummy to not list your references if you’re going to blatantly take someone else’s work. Wish I could give it a 0/5 stars for the thievery.

Awesome podcast!
