Is all exposure the same? What does it mean to add media coverage to a subject? On this rebroadcast of an older episode of Intelligame Radio, Josh discusses the difference between shining light on a topic, and fanning the flames of a trend.

So many of the issues of our current moment stem from unequal power dynamics, people using their power to exploit others. In the game space, discussions about power dynamics come in all shapes and sizes. For this week's episode, we air a conversation from early May with Lana Polansky, video game critic, labor reporter, and host of the indie-focused showcase The Freak Museum. Her eye for unique games and her blending of criticism with historical grounding makes this conversation one worth listening to. ----------- Here's how you can help support Intelligame: 1.

2020's been a tough year for most everyone around the globe, but the past couple weeks in particular have been heavy for Black people in the United States and abroad. The murders of George Floyd, Briana Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and more have returned the spotlight to discussions of racism, anti-Blackness, and police brutality. For our first episode back from our break, we start by saying: Black Lives Matter. This episode features an interview with Zoe Schneider, Community Manager at Harmonix, as well as a public speaker and activist. We talk about what it means to be a creator at this moment, and some of our personal experiences as Black professionals. We also discuss what it means to have platform at a moment like this, and how to work towards progress for all. This week's game recommendation is SweetXHeart, a game created by Catt Small about being a Black woman in the Bronx. The main character, Kara, goes through a typical week in her world: working, going to class, and dealing with microaggressions. Still, the game isn't just about pain: it's about life, and the particular issues that take place for those who have multiple forms of marginalization they deal with on a regular basis. Thanks for listening, folks. -Josh ------ Here's how you can help support Intelligame: 1. Tell a friend! Share a link to a podcast episode or an article that you found important. 2. Follow!

Highlighting developers present at both Game Devs of Color Expo 2017 and PixelPop 2018, we take a look at the ways positive representations benefit us all.
