May 29 is the 9th anniversary of KRL! It’s been an amazing 9 years that have seen a lot of changes. Thanks to all of you who read KRL and I hope you continue to do so for many more years to come. It has also been almost a year since the first episode of Mysteryrat’s Maze Podcast went up! The new year ahead of us will likely see many more changes, but we will always stay true to our core and you will always find mystery, theatre, animal rescue and more in KRL and KRL News and Reviews!
