For this year's CJRU fund drive, we partnered with the station's gaming show, "Built to Play," to bring you "Crisis of Toxic Nerds," a two-part documentary investigating where the toxicity in geek culture comes from, and what we can do about it.
In this part, BTP hosts Arman Aghbali and Daniel Rosen focus on toxic masculinity in gaming specifically. They talk to talk to Laine "Superphrenic" Yuhas about Dota 2, sexism and her organisation, Desoladies. Later, researcher Emma Vossen, an expert on gaming and gender, gives them a run down on what it means to be a gamer, and why that sucks for everyone.
This episode was originally broadcast on CJRU 1280 AM in Toronto.
