As you may or may not know, the Armchair Gamer Podcast has been undergoing some changes in the last calendar year. What began as an irreverent, off-topic show with low sound quality and little effort has turned into a focused, calm(er) look at the world of video games. Basically, my idea for the show going forward is:
What if NPR made a video game show?
You see, though the video game podcast space is very crowded, I feel that AGP does (or is in the process of doing) something more unique. Rather than featuring a loud, crowded roundtable chatting about games and the news of the week, I am trying to offer a one-man show that uses the voices of others (through interviews and such) coupled with my own to seriously discuss not only the biggest game news, but the art of games itself.
Today, as I was arguing (rather heatedly) about some serious sexist issues in the industry on Twitter, I realized how little I knew about these issues. I realized how much I didn't know, but I knew others did.
I want to bring that wealth of knowledge to the podcast space as well. I want to be able to talk to people who know about the issues rather than just try to pretend to know myself.
That's where anyone whose interested comes in.
I am looking currently for a woman who has some knowledge about feminism and such issues to talk on the show about the some of the issues that plague females in the industry. I'd like to have someone who has some experience in the realm of games journalism to talk to over controversies regarding that. If you are a programmer, perhaps you might like to spend a little time on the show now and again?
If anyone with a unique message about games, or who is interested in coming on, wants to join me- feel free to say so. You can write a comment if you want, send a Direct Message, Tweet me (@Gamebeast23456) or email me email@example.com.
With the help of gamers, I hope to make a more dynamic show that people can enjoy.
Thanks in advance from Braden Fox
