Everybody's Talking At Once

By Drew Messinger-Michaels, Frances Michelle Cannon, and Lucio Valentino

A longform interview podcast mostly about video games, but also about design, storytelling, labor, and tech more broadly—not to mention music, books, movies, TV, theater, gallery art, food, and everything else that's important to the people who make games what they are. Trying to make sense of things, and sometimes even succeeding.
