This constant barrage of deadnaming can be very psychologically and emotionally harmful.

Hi from Iran. The show was great and I just wanted to say that you’re so right about showing your face when streaming or recording videos (specially this kind of tutorial) and me as “a person who his first language is not English”, it’s way more better when I can see your face.

I found this podcast to be very difficult to listen to because of has broken English. I spent more time trying to make sure that I understood exactly what words he was trying to say, rather than trying to focus on the content and value that he was going to provide us.

I found his story to be intriguing, however I had a very difficult time listening to this podcast because his English was so broken. I spend an awful lot of time just trying to put together what he was saying, instead of paying attention to the value that he was giving and what he had to say
