Back to our regular schedule! In this episode, we had a loadddd of technical issues which meant that we lost a bit of discussion, sadly (my poor old laptop couldn’t cope with a browser window being open while recording. Let’s just say old laptop has now gone to the “backup machine” pile now 🙁 but I have a shiny new laptop, so that’s nice!)
We were responding in this episode to the online discussions about women who game, and particularly this tweet, which was by a friend of mine, about women who play D&D. (The original tweet that Evelyn was retweeting was about how no women play D&D!)
Please RT if you know a woman who plays DnD, tabletop games, or video games in general. Also RT if you ARE that woman! I’m so sick of this mentality. https://t.co/k82evu04R1

The discussion we lost in the technicals was about ArenaNet, and how we like to give them money, but we don’t really want to any more because they basically not only fired a female employee for pushing back against mansplaining, but a male colleague who supported her. And we didn’t like that much. So that’s basically the bits you missed.
We are also launching a Patreon! You can see it here: https://www.patreon.com/notjustagame
We’ll be making more noise about it as we get back into recording more frequently. If you like what you hear though, please consider dropping us a dollar a show! It’ll help pay for our producer and more gear so we can record remotely while we are both travelling.
(PS featured image is my old retired laptop and some prep I was doing for a D&D game one time!)
