Bloodlines Is Not A Dating Sim-Episode 208

In this episode, the Grills have our Book Club meeting!

We read “Lamb-The Gospel according to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore”

We enjoyed it, and talked about other things it reminded us of like some musicals and plays, and movies and games!

We forgot to mention how well female characters are portrayed in the book, oops.

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!
