Tanya DePass, #INeedMoreDiverseGames Founder Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast

We have an exciting show this week, a great conversation about gaming and diversity with Tanya DePass. I found out about Tanya and #INeedDiverseGames thanks to an article I read on Offworld. I'm conscious that the majority of my guests so far are a bunch of white guys, I'm interested in talking to a diverse set of interesting people from around the world so I thought it would be great to find out more about the "I Need Diverse Games" community with Tanya.
We have a lovely conversation about Tanya's background as a gamer, both video games and tabletop, her time spent in Japan for studies, her background in computer science and human computer interaction, how #INeedDiverseGames started as an angry tweet from Tanya and grew into a full time activity, her activities as a diversity liaison with conventions like GaymerX and more.
Tanya also co-hosts a gaming audio podcast, Fresh Out of Tokens (iTunes / Stitcher), that I also highly recommend you go check out, there are some great conversations about gaming and with game designers. I've listened to a couple of episodes so far and thoroughly enjoyed them.
