Hi Tanya, hi David,

I just wanted to say how much I love your podcast! These conversations
are so important and you always have such interesting guests.

I've always felt like gaming was such a white boys' club and never
really felt welcome in these spaces (as a bisexual afrolatina). So I
didn't really get into it until a couple of years ago and I'm
especially grateful for the alternative -- and safe!! -- spaces these
conversations are creating, which allow for thoughtful discussions of
gender, race, sexuality etc. in games without being immediately shut

I haven't listened to all of your episodes yet, but I really enjoyed
the DA2 girls' night episode, it was so much fun to listen to.

Also, will you be doing a Mass Effect episode as well? I just thought
it would be interesting, since the games deal with themes such as
genocide and medical violence etc.

Anyway, thank you so much for the work you do from an avid listener in

PS. Please excuse my awkward English, I'm not a native speaker.
