Here in Brookago we’re as learned as we are hilarious. Both of these traits are on full display as one of our own, Deborah Budding, PhD., stops by to share her love of pediatric neuropsychology and video games.

We delve deep into how these two disparate disciplines intersect throughout her work. Plus, we talk about what it means to be a good ally to marginalized folks. We also delve into some of the games we’re playing and then breakdown the latest Nintendo NX news!

Life for people of color is never easy. It’s never been more apparent than it is the upcoming title Easy Level Life. ELL creator Yvvy joins us to talk about the impetus for making the game, why it was necessary, and Yvvy’s love for all things JRPG. We get back to breaking down the news by talking about Pokémon GO and the Oculus Rift, and Cicero disappears into a thunderstorm!

Tim Rogers of Action Button studios drops in to talk about their new release, Videoball! While talking to the crew you get to experience a deep dive into the mind of a genius. We also learn where not to park when visiting Tim. If you ever wanted to know what a game dev’s brain sounds like, this is the definitive show for you!

With four different acts of police brutality happening in the past week, we take some time to parse our feelings and record them for you, Brookago.

Rest in peace to those taken from us. #BlackLivesMatter
