About the Podcast

The Grasscast
A show about games, life, and everything in-between
What's the first game you ever played?
What's the best/ worst experience you've had with a game?
Do you consider yourself a gamer?

Welcome to the Grasscast! (a mash-up of the words grasshopper and podcast). The grasshopper is our icon, our symbol, and our spirit animal, which represents the ultimate game-player.

Listen to hosts Shawn Daichendt and Kwab Fordjour as they informally interview friends, family, and other cool people, and try to discover what games really are, and how they inform our lives and experiences.
