The Out-Cast: EP.10b – Mailbag Special #2

What on earth is the Out-Cast?
Well, this was a series of podcasts I did back in 2010~2012 on videogames and videogame culture in Japan for an old website with a completely different crew.
I’m republishing them here on DecultureShock, but for anyone who is interested, the original website can be found here.

Well, our next podcast episode is fully complete, ready to upload, and locked in a room that none of us have the key to… So you guys get a mailbag special instead! This time it’s just me and Kyle so get ready for the Out-Cast as you’ve never heard it before– without Gwyn keeping us on track!
