Oh, start with Marielda or Twighlight Mirage then. Much better audio.

Friends at the Table! Another roleplay podcast and one that Griffin has cited as a major influence. I cannot recommend it enough, beautifully woven storylines and a really mature attitude to "roleplay" rather than "winning"

FatT fans be like "ooh, a full length episode"

I thought it was really good! I wasn't sure what to expect and I think they did a great job of sending off the characters and telling the story of Love Conquers All. Also Griffin is like "and the happy ending for the world is, communism"

I remember how much we used to laugh at people saying bitcoin would recover its price on the fempire and as much as I hate those people they were right about the bitcoin price

A lot of this stuff I'd like, shrug off IRL in an instant but would probably say something on like, a feminist facebook page? I've shrugged off way worse than those two, anyway. If it ends up being a whole discussion and they say it a bunch of times, or with regards to me specifically rather than in the abstract, then I'm more likely to correct them.

Yare Yare boys is a podcast about Jojo's Bizarre adventure where they watch two episodes per week and talk through about how much fun they are by smart4301in podcasts

It definitely helped me stick with it- stuff I missed gets pointed out, and (when GoT finishes and they're back off hiatus) 2 episodes a week is a nice leisurely pace to enjoy it

That's incredibly generous of you! If you're sure about giving stuff away I've always wanted to play a Serious Sam game!

You might recognise the hosts from postgame of thrones, a podcast that evolved from a slightly snarky criticism of the TV show into a cathartic "let's all suffer through this monstrosity together" group therapy session

Nick Robinson from Polygon might be a creep by oakreefin killallgames

[–]smart4301 2 points3 points ago

EDIT: just seen the timestamps here sorry. leaving this post in case it's useful for people but please nobody in this thread think it's intended as an attack, it's just my summary of the situation.

Numerous trustworthy big names have put their weight and support behind the allegations, which are not being posted publicly to protect the victims and prevent internet hate machine stuff. Austin Walker and Ali Acompora in particular have emphasised this was a persistent rumour for a while which after twitter user bloody honey posted this prompted a bunch of people to start talking- all that talk has taken place within the industry with a few exceptions. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind, based on people attempting to drop hints about this historically, that Nick Robinson abused a position of power in the games industry to harass women with impunity. I think the responses from close friends and colleagues like Griffin & Justin McElroy and Ben Pack speak to this.

Abnormal mapping is a games podcast by two nonbinary people that focuses on an interesting or historically significant game each episode rather than following the news and the hot takes by smart4301in podcasts

[–]smart4301[S] 1 point2 points ago

They're frequently joined by an awesome WoC called Destiny and they explore how games made the feel, what they thought of the mechanics, how it fits into the wider gaming history. It's really good and I would recommend scrolling through to find an episode about a game you remember enjoying and then hearing what they make of it!

I think my favourite episode was the one about Myst which really explores how that game broke new ground for people's ideas about what games were and who they were for

(earlier episodes use a deadname for one of the hosts- their name is M, like, /ˈɛm/)
