PopMatters' Moving Pixels Podcast

PopMatters Logo

Back in May I was approached by Kris Ligman from PopMatters' multimedia section, which is the portion of the site dedicated to games (supposedly other media, but I have only ever noticed games), to appear on their podcast about inclusivity. After a bit of planning, our very own FaePuck joined me, as did Alexandra Raymond from The Border House (who was on the same panel with TinyDancer at this year's PAX East). The final cast was us three along with Ligman hosting, and Moving Pixels regulars Nick Dinicola and G. Christopher Williams.

The topic was generally about inclusivity, and that included topics of sexuality, race, sex, gender presentation, and all such like things. We broached topics like representation, larger studios versus indie and who can do what, communities, why sites like ours and The Border House exist, et cetera.

One of the questions towards the end is coming up with developers we thought were making interesting cases for inclusivity in their games, and both Alex Raymond and I realized after that we forgot to give a mention to Choice of Games (who haven't released anything new in a while...). Of course, if you have further suggestions, I would love to hear them.

To listen to the podcast, you can either go to their site and download it directly, or I've embedded the file below so you can listen right from the comfort of this browser tab.

Many thanks to the Moving Pixels staff for inviting us, and to my fellow guests, FaePuck and Alexandra Raymond.

Great podcast. I hope there will be more like this around the gamesphere. There is so much out there worth talking about when it comes to our games and social issues and inclusivity and what works and what doesn't.

I'm just now going through my feeds after taking a break thanks to surgery, but I'm pleased as punch with how the podcast turned out and I want to thank you and Puck as well as Alex for joining us! As a queer gamer myself, being able to collab with a site like this is a bit of a dream come true for me. Thanks for the awesome write-up!

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
