what is herocast again?

herocast is a desktop Farcaster client for power users aka superhuman for Farcaster. No one knows what it means, but it's provocative. It's gets the people going!

It has support for multiple accounts and can switch channels faster than you can say 'Memes'. It supports Cmd + K (command palette) to control everything. You can navigate with j and k through all lists, l to like (lowercase L) and r to recast. Switch channels on Feed page with Shift + 1 to 9. Open external links in a cast with Shift + o.
