8. A Trojan Horse of Information

This week is another interview, this time with GGS community member and science writer Jeni Hackett!

Robyn and Jeni discuss being kids raised in video game households before Jeni explains why it’s so important to not leave out the arts when discussing STEM. Critical thinking, fandom as a doorway to wellness, and the dangerous accessibility of BS in an information age – all of that and more on today’s episode!
