The Mic Drop is a collaborative podcast with the sole purpose of creating a space ‘for migrants by migrants’ exercising agency and exchange through a shared space of collective thinking, storytelling and debate.
This week we'll listen in on a conversation between games industry presenter Shay Thompson, Mic Drop superstar Arthur Britney Joestar and artist Larry Achiampong. They'll be talking all things gaming, from Super Mario to Cyberpunk 2077 - how does gaming bring us together, do we feel community when in game space and how are we represented within this space?
