Space-Cast! #7. This Critical Land

Wee Aquinas *likes* being caned. Ew, Wee Aquinas. TMI.

Today on the Space-Biff! Space-Cast!, Dan is joined by Tom Russell, who answers questions about his controversial title This Guilty Land, discusses research and responsibility in crafting board games, and answers the two most difficult questions of them all: what is your favorite dinosaur, and what is art?
