ShackCast 21: Gerstmann Edition

BOOM widget 114559 Because yesterday's ShackCast 20 was recorded prior to the Jeff Gerstmann firing controversy, we felt we should get back on the mic to discuss it.

Chris Remo, Chris Faylor, and Nick Breckon discuss the facts and rumors regarding the firing from GameSpot/CNET, general trends in game journalism, and the relationship between publishers, ad sales, and editorial. We also take a few questions from readers regarding this specific incident and the larger environment that surrounds it.

Finally, for those bothered by the annoying voice clipping in yesterday's episode, that should be fixed today. Sorry about that!
