Soundbytes Podcast - EP 7 - Diversity with Haroon Thantrey and Katie Tarrant

May 1, 2017

Hello! Welcome back to the seventh episode of our monthly podcast about games and game audio. This month we decided to tackle the incredibly important issue of diversity in games and game development. We were lucky to be approached by many people who were intrested in discussing the topic, and for this episode we are joined by our good friends composer Katie Tarrant (Rare) and sound designer Haroon Thantrey (Rebellion). We talk representation in games, breaking in and experiences of the industry, and the future of diversity within game development.
