Ep 123 Summary


Greetings, Guardians!

Wanted to throw together an summary of the last episode, for those who might not be regular visitors to the Podbean site.

As always, if anyone has any questions or concerns, my door is always open.

Blue out


Episode 123 brings Blue, an extremely tardy Justin, Green, Beard, and returning special guest co-host PurpleChimera back together to discuss a rather hot topic at the moment – the “problem” of biased presentation of in-game story information. Namely – is it a problem? The group hashes it out among them (and yes, we’re back to the familiar group of Blue and Beard not really being on the same page), using figures such as the Speaker, Osiris, Toland, and even real life examples such as stereotypes in music, the historical research and experiences of Purple, and the dangers of angering abstract artists (GG, Justin).

Also be sure to weigh in for the community question for this week!
