This week, we are joined by returning guest Andrew Hackard – the Munchkin Czar! We take a look at a “controversy” in the gaming world caused by the inclusion of 13 women on a 25 person slate of gaming professionals to be featured on the Industry Insider program at Gencon this year. Apparently, some gamers are butthurt that they managed to find so many qualified women to sit the panels and feel some men were “unfairly” excluded. Hack, who is an industry professional, gives us the rundown on this really dumb argument and we talk about the inroads women are making into gaming and the ways gaming has been working to be more inclusionary.
