Somehow, against all odds, ignoring the fact that we have all of five listeners, Failcast has managed to make it - to episode 50. Honestly, we're as surprised as you. And in a way, we're sort of sorry about it too. Thanks for tolerating us and even, from time to time, enjoying the trainwreck we put out here.
To celebrate, we're releasing the episode late as always! And on this episode of Failcast is one of Modern Method's renaissance men, Brad "DMV" Rice, an editor on Destructoid and Tomopop and editor-in-chief of Japanator. He joins the cast to talk about anime, being around near the beginning of Destructoid, and what it was like to live with Necros. Hilarity ensues. Also, stay tuned for a Failcast exclusive bit of news from Niero!
