PodCastle editor Rachel Swirsky talks about the vision for PodCastle, the team behind it, the arc for the first few months of stories, and the launch on April 1.
Things are Officially Getting Rolling. We’re going to cast the first episode on April 1. An April Fool’s Day joke, you ask? I’ll let you determine that for yourselves.
