ShackCast Season 2, Episode 1: Super Tennis

By Nick Breckon, Mar 23, 2008 12:18pm PDT The ShackCast is back for a second season, bringing with it the same goofy commentary in a tighter package, as well as a few other surprises. We'll be playing with the format as we go, and have some interesting things planned for future casts. Do continue to send in your questions and comments to Shackcast@Shacknews.com.


Today on the Cast, the staffers adjust to the tyrannical, yet pleasant rule of their guest host. Also, the week's news is briefly digested, Faylor counteracts a dull release period by gushing on golf games, Steve squeezes cows into submission, and Aaron professes his perverse love of video game olfaction.

Music provided by Shacknews community band Jesuit Arrival.
