That’s My Secret, I’m Always Hungry – Episode 209

NineOf12 and Reiaino are joined by Author J-F Dubeau in this episode.

We catch up on what’s new in our lives, and then chat about J-F’s upcoming book Song Of The Sandman, which is a sequel (2/3) to A God In The Shed.

You can read a bit about J-F here: https://www.jfdubeau.com/

Other works we talked about are a podcast he is on: 40K Radio Podcast | The Freebooter’s Network (freebootersnetwork.com)

Of course, there’s also Achewillow, which you’ve heard about before either because J-F (the show’s writer) and Amy (who narrates it) have been on our show before-or because we talk about it all the time. https://www.achewillow.com/

We hope you enjoyed our conversation, and tell your friends!

The Angriest Crocheting – Episode 204

This is a difficult conversation about the content of the lawsuit brought against Activision/Blizzard, and their response so far.

It’s emotional, it’s potentially triggering, but it’s a discussion we feel we MUST still have (unfortunately) over and over again.

As promised, here are links to a lot of the content we referred to in our talk:

The Lawsuit: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/aug/08/activision-blizzard-lawsuit-women-sexual-harassment

Contract based employment:  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-08-27/video-game-contractors-receive-poor-treatment-and-low-salary-as-business-booms

Unionization: https://www.axios.com/games-industry-unionization-4e63a526-ae3a-4f7c-8946-c9a765d6958c.html

This is an episode we did in april of 2019. We talked a lot about how we thought the state of streaming and podcasting for women had gotten better…women getting seen as “real” gamers and becoming less objectified. Too bad the actual development industry didn’t keep up!
