The WhaleCast Episode 0

WhaleCast LogoDork Shelf is pleased to introduce the WhaleCast, our new gaming and culture podcast featuring Dork Shelf Games Editor Eric Weiss and independent game developer Jon Remedios (SSMP). In the first show – dubbed Episode 0 so there are zero expectations – we argue about FramedDust: An Elysian Tale, and a game in which you play as a bartender serving a large group of Corgis. We also touch on console exclusives and the recent Bit Bazaar in Toronto.

We hope you enjoy the show. Be sure to let us know if you have any feedback.
