Hello friends, this is Taylor, your host for the Riverhouse Gaming Podcast. We’ve past the first rotation of our segments, so it’s time for another lap. We’re starting round two with another episode of Game Closet, our show about queer and LGBT gamers. We’re airing this one out of order actually, as we had recorded it before my chat with Caitlynn Belle. We’re all a little nervous about recording, and thinking “should we really be people with a show?” but after editing, I think we did a great job. In this episode, I sit down with the majority of the cast of the other show on our network, The Leviathan Files. We talk about that show, how we met & started gaming, and a little history of queer representation in gaming sourcebooks. As always, share and enjoy!
