Ep. 33: Program Manager/"Problem Solver" James Ridgers from Blizzard Entertainment
Program manager, self-described problem solver, and “English Guy” James Ridgers from Blizzard Entertainment joins us for a remarkably wide-ranging and thoughtful conversation about about solving problems, happiness, compassion, helping out wherever you can, how not all gamers are griefers and trolls, choosing what to believe, coming to terms with your failures, not being late (ever), his newfound love of wine, and much more.
After the credits roll at the end, there’s another bonus conversation where we do a deep, deep dive on British music (“BritPop”) in the mid-90s, the political and cultural atmosphere behind the music, how an era’s music always reflects the anxieties of the time, and how the social media age has changed how we express ourselves and thus the art we make (or don’t make).
