Posted this preemptively before the show aired. I have added some notes since the show. Here are some things I mentioned in my intro:
- Speaking out Against Hate Directed at Women: Russell Glasser
Anita Sarkeesian’s Damsel in Distress: Part 1 – Tropes vs Women in Video Games
- I was asked in email to say what was the book I read about extremists and conspiracy theorists. The book is Them: Adventures With Extremists by Jon Ronson.
The crew is aware that there were technical problems again with the live Ustream feed. They have ruled out problems with the laptop hardware. The current working theory is that the public access studio has limited internet bandwidth, and this is somehow interfering with streaming. It might be fixed in the future by switching to a lower quality stream.
