Failcast Episode 6: We Gots iTunes, Bitches!



Today is the day, ladies and gentlemen, the day Failcast joins the proud, elite ranks of those podcasts deemed worthy enough to get listed in Apple's iTunes store. Yes, you read correctly, you can now find Failcast listed along with such essential fare as The China Millennium Monument and French Maid TV. This basically means that Apple has welcomed us into the fold, and to celebrate, we're making a few changes. From now on, all shows will be recorded in Starbucks while listening to Damien Rice. The entire show is now Mac-produced, with longtime PC gamers abandoning their beefy machines for Apple's highly-priced merchandise. And of course, as soon as you download this episode, it will become obsolete and be replaced with a new version. We look forward to this bright future of pretentious bullshit.

I'm kidding, of course.

We do have a rather unconventional episode for you this week, or at least it felt like it to me. Our scheduled guest Gamegoblin was unable to make it, so we called upon our official Failcast sub Droobies to pretend to be Canadian in his place. All I can say is that it resulted in something that you have to hear to fully comprehend how awesome Droobies is.
