In this episode, I pointed out Blizzard workers at Pride. I mentioned some game companies who want to protect their worker’s access to health care. The ABK Workers Alliance had things to say, and so did ABK Watch. Blizzard acquired Proletariat. I also talked about content from the Diablo community, including a bombshell of an announcement from the guys at Maxroll!
