    Each episode of the  Diversi Podcast addresses a different diversity issue and how it relates to games industry, culture and communities ­ all in a positive and approachable manner.

    In season one of the podcast, the hosts help to develop an understanding of what’s meant by ‘diversity in games’, the work which has already been done in this area, and what has yet to come. Along with special guests including David Grundström (IGN Sweden), Liam Esler (IGDA, GX Australia) and Inger Ekman (TjejHack), the podcast explores topics including games for girls, sexuality in games, game accessibility, diversity in games media and ethnic diversity in games.
