    Episode 233: Mega Ran on His Former Life as a Middle School Teacher Before He Became A Hip Hop Star

    Raheem "Mega Ran" Jarbo wasn't always the hip-hop darling of the video game world. For almost six years, he was a middle school teacher in the Philly and Phoenix areas, helping shape a new generation of English class students and music lovers. Rather than solely discussing his hip-hop career, we dive into his background in the educational system, his own experiences at school, the teachers and students who impacted his life the most, how education has influenced his numerous albums throughout the years, what a Mega Ran music class would look like, and much much more.

    Episode 232: How the Women of the British Navy Won WWII With Tabletop Wargaming, With Simon Parkin

    Episode 232: How the Women of the British Navy Won WWII With Tabletop Wargaming, With Simon Parkin

    Simon Parkin, writer for The New Yorker and The Guardian, joins the show to discuss his new book "A Game of Birds and Wolves," a fascinating history of the women of the British Navy who developed a massive war game (much like the Warhammer and tactics games of modern day) to help win WWII, creating a strategy to combat German U-Boats, which routinely decimated shipping and combat vessels in the Atlantic. Joe and Simon dive into the band of misfits that were the Wrens, a special all-women division of the British military, how Captain Gilbert Roberts used his wargaming experience to guide the British Navy in developing invaluable counter-manuevers, and the roots of wargaming that have influenced games like Warhammer, Total War, Final Fantasy Tactics, and more.

    Episode 231: How California's AB5 Law Is Decimating Freelance Writers and Could Hurt Game Developers

    Episode 231: How California's AB5 Law Is Decimating Freelance Writers and Could Hurt Game Developers

    California's new AB5 law is here, and it's already harmed the lives of countless west coast freelance writers, photographers, musicians, and more. And it could potentially harm California-based freelance game developers, too. Long story short, AB5 originally intended to provide greater worker protections for exploited workforces like those working for Uber, Lyft, and other contractor agencies. Instead, the bill was written so broadly that it now arbitrarily restricts the number of submissions we can make to a company per year. Imagine only being able to write or produce 35 pieces of work, including smaller examples like a news story, PER YEAR.

    To that end, I spoke with Richard Hoeg of Hoeg Law, an experienced lawyer who's been following AB5 and its impact since mid-2019. We discuss the law's impact on the freelancer community, its history and background, why so many more powerful groups managed to get exemptions for their industries, and what the future holds for California companies and the freelancers they now can't bring on.

    If you want to speak up about AB5, contact your local representative.

    Episode 230: Michael Martin on Running Capcom eSports, Mental Health, and Why He Had to Leave

    Dear friend of the show Michael Martin spent the last year running Capcom Esports before unexpectedly stepping down. In this episode, we'll hear from him on what it was like to run the esports division of the franchise (Street Fighter) that shaped him as a young man, how working for the game's community impacted his mental health, and ultimately why it's important to step away, even from supposed dream jobs.

    Episode 229: What Memoir Games Have to Teach Us About Therapy, with Emma Kidwell

    Episode 229: What Memoir Games Have to Teach Us About Therapy, with Emma Kidwell

    Memoir games - that is, a video game designed as a personal reflection on some part of your life. They have a LOT to teach us about ourselves, both their creators and the people who play them. Emma Kidwell is a former Gamasutra editor who's made a number of really beautiful memoir games (check out "Nod if You Can Hear Me" and "Half" on her itch.io page linked below), and she's learned a lot about herself, her craft, and also some negative stuff. While memoir games can be therapuetic, they can also easily be a crutch that game devs rely on. So Emma and I unpack what makes for a good memoir game, and what makes for a constructive experience making one. We also talk plenty about therapy in general, and how our favorite artform has impacted our journeys to healthier living.
