Failcast is a community-focused podcast featuring Destructoid's regular users. It is recorded every Tuesday night and (usually) is released on Thursday. Every ten episodes, Failcast features a Destructoid editor.
If you want to be a guest on the podcast or have an audio segment to contribute, send an email to Failcast@gmail.com and we'll get back to you. Keep in mind that we have a long guest list, but you will be put on it; you'll just have to wait. Any audio segments should be in MP3 format, with a bit rate of 128 kbps and a sample rate of 44.100 kHz.
It took us over a month to schedule a date to do it, but tonight, Failcast finally dies. In keeping with tradition, our 4 intrepid hosts will come together and record a badly organized whinefest where we bitch about the old days, and literally tens of people will listen.
In all honesty, it sucks that we haven't been able to record this last episode until now, but then again what do you expect from us? Leave it to Failcast to announce a final episode and then take a month and a half to organize it... pathetic.
Anyway, tonight's episode will feature... something secret.. maybe. Or not. I can't promise anything. Or maybe I can. Who knows? IT'S A SECRET. But as always, we want you to leave us your questions, comments, and hate mail. Especially hate mail... Yashoki and I really enjoy it.
Ever since Failcast put out its first episode, we've heard rumors that Failcast was ending. Well, not so much rumors... more like biting comments, such as "you suck", "why are you doing this it is terrible", and "worst podcast ever but it has sound so 11/10". Despite the (justified) hate, we've kept on going strong, and it has been an awesome 2+ years. We've laughed, we've cried (from laughing so hard), we've trolled Necros into the depths of hell and back... but all good things must come to an end. As such, here is the announcement we'd like to make:
Failcast's last episode will be recorded next Tuesday, and then we will fade into oblivion and obscurity, forever forgotten by everyone. In short, it's what we deserve.
Ok, in all honesty, the last 2 and some years have been amazing, and it's all thanks to our listeners. Without you guys, there would be no point in doing any of this. We've had our ups and downs as a show, but you guys have always been there to keep on listening, commenting, and reminding us why we were doing the show. The fact that I got a chance to sit down with 3 of my close friends and record ourselves having a weekly alcohol-fueled conversation, and then people actually wanted to listen to it... it just blows my mind. Bringing in guests every week gave us a chance to really get to know this great community that we have, and I've made some wonderful friends through doing so. Failcast has been nothing short of amazing for me, and I hope that you all have enjoyed the show each week/month/whenever we put episodes out.
And that's precisely why Failcast is not going out with a whisper, but with a bang. We have some excellent content planned for our final episode, and we wouldn't be Destructoid's first officially unofficial community podcast without extending the last show to you guys. If you want to send in a shoutout, a message, a segment, a tearful goodbye while you masturbate, a scathing rant about how much Necros sucks... whatever it is, it goes in the show. Failcast has always been about the community, and we want you, the faithful tens of listeners, involved just as much as we are. Just email your stuff to failcast [at] gmail, and we'll be sure to include it.
Again, we can’t stress enough how appreciative we are of you for your support of us over the years, in spite of how terrible this show has always been. Thanks for the laughs, the memories, and the memes. Without you guys we're just some losers talking about the vidya. Now if only we could get Necros to give us his sister's phone number......
That's right faithful listener (thebez, I'm looking at you), Failcast returns to entertain literally tens of you this week. Seeing as this show is a multiple of 10 and Necros has some weird rule about "special people" every 10 episodes, tonight we feature the one and only Dale North as our guest. Send in your questions, comments, or commands and wet yourself in anticipation of the smooth sultry voice of Señor North, as he regales us with tales of his exploits in the world of... whatever the hell he does.
Also... if you want... you could, if you have time, check out our sister podcast Animucast, where king, Yash, and Stella Wong talk about all things weeaboo. It's... it's not like we want you to listen or anything.... we're just saying........
You know, faithful listeners, I’ve always wanted to travel the world. See the sights, go on adventures, explore the unknown… until now. After hearing about the horrors that await Down Under, I’ve been convinced, thanks to nebones, to never ever visit Australia. Ever.That place is mad bananas
So anyway, we did a show, it featured nebones, and it was awesome. Here’s the part where I’d write something witty about how much we suck or something, but honestly I’ve slacked off enough at work for one day, so here it is. I hope you hate it.

Sorry kids, but there will be no Animucast this week due to scheduling conflicts, real life, and Second Impact. In lieu of the awesome weeaboo goodness, we have a challenge for you, the listener! Though we love our big brother Failcast, we will be splitting off and creating our own RSS/Itunes feed/Account etc. As such we're going to need a header for our posts, and we are too lazy/artistically impaired to do it ourselves...
"So what's in it for me?" you ask. Well, I (king) recently purchased a bunch of blindbox figures in order to complete a couple sets, and ended up with a few extras. Make the best header, and these figures are yours. And yes, I'll ship them anywhere. We'll be announcing and displaying the winner's entry next week, so get crackin (because we're too lazy)
