The 42cast Episode 100: Six Nerds in Search of a Plot (Who Shot R.G.?)

Episode 100

The 42cast turns 100 as the cast celebrates a century of episodes. First up, Nathan answers your questions about himself and the show. After that, we pull in a cast comprised of some our most prolific guests as well as some of the people who inspired the show’s creation. Sam speaks to us about the definition of an archive and how archives and archivists are portrayed in media, Mike talks about neck injuries sustained playing Call of Duty on the big screen, Anji goes gaga for online D&D tools, Shaun discusses DIY conventions. Juliette talks about Covid safety, and Nathan asks if releasing films straight to streaming is a good thing. We also discuss the perils of season finales as we contemplate the death of one of our own.

As this is an anniversary episode there is no five-minute controversy.

Its a full ship this week as Shaun, Anji, Juliette, Sam, and Mike join the cast.
