Episode 107: Black Lives Matter
Pandemics go beyond just disease and viruses. They have the capacity to sneak into the core of our being, society, and yes — our game industry. The pandemic of racial inequality is at the forefront of the discussion today, which comes at the heels of the latest surge of the Black Lives Matter movement. We would be doing our Debug Log community a disservice if we did not talk about the current political and cultural stage as it relates (and has influenced) the game industry.
