Dice Tower Network Podcast: Our Turn!

Our Turn Podcast is made up of a group of women who are pulling out the chairs around the table and inviting everyone to sit down and join the game and the conversation. Gaming is a fun social hobby that invites conversation, interaction, and connection between people of diverse backgrounds and points of view. Sitting across the game table and engaging in an entertaining pastime can break down barriers and open up lines of communication. We plan to use this podcast to be a positive, inclusive, and active voice in the gaming industry and the gaming community-at-large.
