Hi Tanya, hi David,
I just wanted to say how much I love your podcast! These conversations are so important and you always have such interesting guests.
I've always felt like gaming was such a white boys' club and never really felt welcome in these spaces (as a bisexual afrolatina). So I didn't really get into it until a couple of years ago and I'm especially grateful for the alternative -- and safe!! -- spaces these conversations are creating, which allow for thoughtful discussions of gender, race, sexuality etc. in games without being immediately shut down.
I haven't listened to all of your episodes yet, but I really enjoyed the DA2 girls' night episode, it was so much fun to listen to.
Also, will you be doing a Mass Effect episode as well? I just thought it would be interesting, since the games deal with themes such as genocide and medical violence etc.
Anyway, thank you so much for the work you do from an avid listener in Germany!
PS. Please excuse my awkward English, I'm not a native speaker.
