We chatted with Amy about gender disparity in voice acting, queer indie games research, WoW Raid design and starting a feminist gaming club at her college among lots of things!
We were featured in FemHype’s Sunday Loot on August 2nd! They had a piece every Sunday about a different topic or highlighting folks in the gaming space. We got a lovely write up along with our Brookago bro’s Spawn on Me, AppleCider Mage and Tzoefit on Justice Points, Anna Tarkov and Jessica Dennis from Unconsoleable, BTAPodcast Network, along with a few other podcasts we didn’t know about.
