We've been trying to think of more things we could do specifically for the Patreon crowd and decided that we would start up a little series for the people who help us keep the lights on! Enter what is being tentatively called Women & Tropes & Games. Remember how a few years ago a pop culture critic decided to do a series of videos about tropes in video games as viewed through a feminist lens? Well, that conversation got really toxic for a long time, and five years later things seem to have cooled off. So, we're taking another look at the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games series! Each episode of this series will zero in on one episode from the TvWiVG videos and try to break down the trope and talk a bit more in-depth about the specific points Ms. Sarkeesian is making and whether we agree or disagree. The videos were always intended to be a starting point for a larger discussion - hopefully you learn some things or find the conversations interesting! This first episode will be available via the traditional channels, but after that we will be releasing them for patrons only (with maybe one or two exceptions down the road). Y'all are fantastic and thank you so much for bearing with us as we continue on our podcasting adventure together.
