Jack is joined by streamer and all around swell guy Kazuma Hashimoto to talk about the remastered version of Final Fantasy XII, giving the game a much needed second look! It's a lot of talk about imperialism and occupation through the more digestible lens of a JRPG. In Part II, Jack and Kazuma cover the narrative beats of the game, going deep into spoiler territory on a quest to discover the themes and secrets it holds.

This week Jack interviews Tanya DePass from I Need Diverse Games. Tanya works as a consultant helping companies improve the way black and brown people are depicted in pop culture. She was kind enough to allow me to publish the full interview with her after talking with her for a piece on Extra Life (which is still in the works). The full conversation was really interesting and it was wonderful having her on to get her perspective.
