The other show in the network is a new show, with the first episode to premiere this week! The Chromatic Life Podcast features Javier Payano, Matt Lancaster and me talking about everything from current events, gaming, life, education, etc through a diverse lens.
Last thing, I’ll be on the next episode of Heroine Podcast, which is part of the BTA (Bitch Team Alpha) network. I had a chance to talk about #INeedDiverseGames, the inception where it is now, where it’s hopefully headed and I was able to give Heroine the scoop on our next big name guest on Fresh Out of Tokens. You’ll have to listen to hear who it is. 😉
