Christmas Cast 2015

Christmas Cast is Mega64's annual Christmas podcast special that has run for several years now (2006 - Present). The format of the special typically involves the core Mega64 crew often joined by both close friends, as well as people from the video game industry, consuming either disgusting or excessive amounts of one particular food until they are forced to vomit it back up - all in the name of the Holiday season.

Rocco Botte has stated that the inspiration for the idea came from the MTV show, Jackass, where the cast attempted to drink milk until vomiting. There have been a few Christmas traditions throughout the years - one being Rocco wearing the same Santa Claus jacket every year since 2008. He has also licked the never-washed jacket each year since 2015. Another big tradition was that Kevin Bushong would bring questionable/repulsive foods, progressively getting worse each year. That tradition almost came to an end in 2016, when Kevin brought surströmming into the studio. The stench of the surströmming, as well as some other factors involving insects and urine, are possible factors to the future changes in the format of the special. In 2017, the podcast became more of a tournament/"Battle Royal" eating competition - with Dr. Ryan winning and Garrett Hunter coming in second place. As per tradition, the podcast ended with Kevin bringing a carton of year-old milk to the set.
