Week in Geek: Andrew (and Dan) get caught up in the latest nostalgia-driven mobile free-to-play game, Final Fantasy Record Keeper while Dan watches yet another Hayao Miyazaki movie (this time, it’s Porco Rosso).
Vorpal, Shoot Between Heartbeats: Dan sits down with previous guest, Jason Tudor, to talk about Jason’s new sci-fi, espionage webcomic, Vorpal, creative goals, inspirations, and philosophies. This is a very truncated version of a much longer interview, which is available as its own Shortcast.
Free to Play Games: With the previously mentioned Final Fantasy Record Keeper, Dan and Andrew talk Free-to-Play games––also known as “Freemium” games––and what their trend in gaming means to gaming and nerd culture at large.
Marvel Takes a Dare…devil: Not to ignore some major nerd news, Andrew and Dan discuss the recent Netflix Marvel TV show, Daredevil, and what it means to Marvel and TV watching in general.
