I had a chance to sit with Jeremy Yoder of the Geek Cross podcast to discuss race, activism, Asatru and #INeedDiverseGames among other topics. Take a listen!
Jeremy speaks with activist Tanya DePass, creator of #INeedDiverseGames and cohost of the gaming podcast Fresh Out of Tokens. Topics include: “accidental” activism; the one year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death; race in America; the Emanuel AME shootings; the beliefs and practices of the Ásatrú faith; and representation of Norse paganism in Marvel comics and films.
