This week we’re chatting with community managers Victoria Tran (Kitfox Games) and Harris Foster (Finji Games). Join us for an in-depth discussion of the quickly evolving field of community management, our seasonal allergies, and whether social media is really worth the trouble anymore.
It’s the crossover event of the century. Kells (Calico) and Rand Miller (Cyan Worlds) discuss their distinct creative visions, pack-bonding with robots, and how Jimmy Eat World is basically the Pink Floyd of turn-of-the-century emo.
Our incredible guests Brandon Dixon (Swordsfall) and C. Spike Trotman (Iron Circus Comics), along with special guest co-host Ytasha Womack (Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci Fi & Fantasy Culture), give you a guided tour of Afrofuturism and Afropunk in games and fiction. Along the way, we'll discuss our parents, eating breakfast, and being old enough to remember the original She-Ra.
Cole Wehrle (Root, Pax Pamir) and Daisy Ritz (Exploding Kittens, Throw Throw Burrito) have a chat about stretch goals, the party that is the internet, and how amazing wearing a sheet around town could be.
Sam Roberts (IndieCade) and Mary Flanagan (Mechanica) take a deep dive into games theory and explore the experience of play.
Alanna Cervenak of Asmadi Games (1001 Odysseys) and Christopher Badell of Greater Than Games (Sentinel Comics: The Roleplaying Game) discuss the many roles and duties in game development, and how stressful it can be to just let someone else do their dang job. We also have an in-depth discussion about our many horrible adopted cats, which was fully unrelated and entirely delightful.
