In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Shaun talks to DC, creator of the table-top role-playing game, Mutants in the Night. They discuss how Mutants in the Night utilizes the Forged in the Dark RPG system to explore marginalization, what inspired them to create RPGs in the first place, how RPGs allow us to create a space that isn’t plagued by problems of colonization, the way that language, ttrpgs, and jazz are connected, and their next project!
Then our special guest host, Tonia Thompson, founder and executive producer of Nightlight Podcast, talks to Chinelo Onwualu, Nommo finalist short story writer of the phenomenal “Read Before Use” and co-founder and editor of Omenana magazine. Chinelo shares the history of her writing career, the themes of “Read Before Use” and how they were inspired by her home country of Nigeria, how living between two worlds influences her writing, her work on and the goals of both Omenana and Anathema magazines, and so much more!
We hope you enjoy the episode!
