State of the KaktusKast 8/22/17

Hey everyone, djkaktus here.

Just wanted to give you all a brief update as to what's going on around here. It's been a few weeks since the last KaktusKast, and in that time I've been laid up a bit and working diligently on SCP March Madne- err, Autumn Anarchy, which we're going to be launching soon on this website! It should be great. 

Our next show, featuring WrongJohnSilver, will come up before too long. More updates to follow! Don't forget to send those questions in, and we'll see you at the next show.

The KaktusKast Ep. 24 - ArtKast2017

Great writing communities are defined by the fanartists who depict their work. Or, at least this one is. On this episode of The KaktusKast, djkaktus is joined by Perelka_L, Zhange, and SunnyClockwork to talk about art, inspiration, and the sex appeal of the highest levels of senior staff.
