Thank you to everyone who’s been listening to Polygamer since the show launched in July! In less than three months, we’ve had guests on the podcast discussing feminism, cultural gatekeeping, LGBT issues, indie development, and gender-inclusive game design — and we’ve barely scratched the surface. In the coming months, I’ll be talking with industry and community leaders about mental health, ableism, imbuing games with social value, and cyberbullying.
To ensure Polygamer is accessible to as many guests and as wide an audience as possible, all future episodes will be available as audio only. If you’re already subscribed on iTunes or Stitcher, you don’t need to change a thing! The only difference is that there will no longer be YouTube videos accompanying each show. The video edition served primarily to market the show’s debut to my existing audience of 35,000+ YouTube subscribers. It did not add significant value to the Polygamer experience, and so, with it having served its purpose, I’m happy to retire it. Gamebits’ YouTube channel will continue to host my other podcast, IndieSider, as well as Let’s Plays and unboxings.
If you have any feedback about Polygamer — compliments or complaints, guest nominations or death threats — please fill out the contact form, or hit me up on Twitter. There are tons of great content and conversations coming, so stay tuned!
