September is #Bioware month on Fresh Out of Tokens!

This month we’re lucky enough to have not one, but two guests from Bioware joining us behind the mic!

On September 9th, we’re recording with Allan Schumacher, SDET on #MassEffect:Andromeda. We’ll talk about gaming, diversity and things he’s seen changing in the industry in his time at Bioware.

Then on September 23rd, we’ll talk with David Gaider, who’s moved on from being Lead Writer on the Dragon series; specifically this IGN piece on making Dorian Pavus for Dragon Age Inquisition. We’ll also talk about diversity in gaming and other topics.

Really looking forward to both of them on the show.
