Ep. 31: "Qatherine is Qamp" (Catherine: Full Body w/ Sara Brown)
Gay for Play: A Video Game Podcast
This week we're joined once again by our friend Sara Brown: an iconic comedian & cosplayer who you may have previously heard on our Persona 5 Royal episode! She's back to talk about yet another ATLUS game, the super stylish, puzzle horror RPG Catherine: Full Body. And much like Persona 5, this cult classic misses the mark pretty heavily in regards to how it handles LGBT representation. (CONTENT WARNING for transphobia in this game that we discuss at length about halfway through this episode) We chat with Sara about Catherine's portrayal of straight culture, muse on authorial intent when it comes to characters with shitty opinions, and how ATLUS's attempt to course correct its transphobic content in the game's remake (Catherine: Full Body) resulted in a product arguably more problematic than the original.PLUS Laurence talks about Boyfriend Dungeon & the online discourse that has developed since the game's release, and Eric talks about his recent Vegas trip and his experience at Omega Mart, Meow Wolf's newest interactive art exhibit in Sin City. It's a jam-packed episode that'll leave you on the EDGE of your seat.

Episode 7 – Style and size inclusivityThis week we chat to phenomenal designer, influencer and size inclusive brand consultant Sara Brown @sarabrowndesign We jump straight into the boundaries between style and trends, how we grow and develop our unique styes and how Sara is challenging size inclusivity.We focus on how brands can start the process of making clothes available for more people and their need to do so much more. We scale it back and discuss how universities should teach the next generation of designers how to design, grade and make clothing that fit size and disability requirements and celebrate Sara’s journey.

Gay for Play: A Video Game Podcast
Hey oomfs and besties!! This week we're joined by Super Dating Simulator's Sara Brown to talk about PERSONA 5 ROYAL: Atlus's critically-lauded JRPG about living the life of a Tokyo high schooler who moonlights as a monster-fighting "phantom thief" crusading against injustice. (It's very anime.)It's a game all 3 of us love dearly... even though it misses the mark pretty heavily in terms of positive LGBTQ+ representation. So we get *into* it! We chat about why high school teachers dating their students is Bad™, commiserate over the protagonist's lack of gay romance options, and how Futaba Sakura is definitely mining crypto and robbing hedge fund managers blind! (we stan!!)We also chat about the game's themes of found-family, the struggle for justice, and its nuanced portrayals of masculinity. Despite its flaws, we love these troublemaking Tokyo teens to bits and we're so excited to finally dig into this massive game!Follow Sara (@saraisnotfamous) on Instagram and Twitter, and check out her show, Super Dating Simulator here!

We go deep on the show's history, how a modest animation budget led to some amazing battle scenes and even more amazingly static non-battle scenes, and the sheer cosmic horror of End of Evangelion.Plus, one do Netflix one better and actually end our episode with Fly Me To The Moon. Your move, NOTflix!

34: Leaving your corporate career after burnout with Sara Brown
The Sunday Soother
What happens if you’re in a long-term corporate career, you’re super successful, but you’re burned the hell out, and you dream of leaving to do … uh… something, anything else? Sara Brown did this. She is a Sunday Soother reader who emailed me a few months ago to say my journey of leaving my corporate career to start my own thing — and all my reflection along the way — resonated with her. After a nearly 20-year successful career in corporate PR and communications, Sara realized she was desperately burned out and she just… left. I wanted to interview her to hear her story as I think the Soother community — and the world at large — are in a moment right now where we’re wondering if our careers are what we want to, or need to be, doing with and for ourselves.Things Sara and I talk about:The surprising ways burnout looked like for usWhat it feels like to leave your job when you’re almost 40 and not sure where to go nextHow we both decided to make these decisions and leap How our careers were so crucial to our identities and self-worth, and how we are working to unwind thatOur favorite astrological tool Resources mentioned in the episode: Designing your LifeEzra Klein workism/burnout episode Buzzfeed burnout article The Pattern astrology app The Cut: The Ambition Collision Wit & Delight: My Only Goal This Summer is Doing NothingVice: If You Don’t Want to Have Kids, You Don’t Have to Want a Career InsteadDuke: "Love Your Job?
