We chatted up Eve Eschenbacher about her work in localization, gaming, translation, mental health issues in the industry, and about being a Young Adult author. Somewhere along the way, a spell was cast and we wound up at the witching hour.
We have tees, and other items in the #INeedDiverseGames spreadshirt shop. We’re splitting the profits 50/50 with Chachibobinks. There’s a blog to compliment the show! Follow us at outoftokenscast.com If you have questions, compliments, hate mail feel free to drop a note there as well. You can also @ us on twitter; @OutOfTokensCast or email us email@example.com.
