Jen’s Lore Corner – King Kanai – Episode 011

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast.

New content started with Episode 010.

In this episode, I talk about the lore of King Kanai, the beloved true king of the Barbarians. The character was named after a real person.

Before I started recording this episode, I put together a blog post with everything I know about King Kanai. It has screenshots from the Diablo III game, and links to all my source material.

Capitalism is the Problem – Episode 045

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote a few days ago. The inspiration was the recent layoffs at Blizzard/Activision/King.

It turns out I had a whole lot to say about not only that situation but also about capitalism.

Capitalism is the Problem

I’ve noticed a pattern – and I’m not the first one to have seen it. The inspiration for this piece of writing, sadly, comes from the news of the massive layoffs at Blizzard/Activision/King.

Layoffs like these keep happening. Why? The problem is capitalism. Fortunately, there are solutions to this problem that can be implemented in the United States if enough people get together and push for change.

An Open Letter to an Anonymous “Pro-Life” Commenter – Episode 044

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote on January 7, 2016, on a blog that no longer exists.

It was written in response to a random, anonymous, “pro-life” commenter who left and incredibly long and angry comment on a blog post I wrote about a bill that would prevent women from accessing abortion.

Jen’s Lore Corner – Valla – Episode 010

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast.

Episode 010 marks the beginning of brand new content.

In this episode, I review the lore of Valla the Demon Hunter. Her story is scattered through a short story, different parts of Diablo III, and an entirely different Blizzard game.

Before I started recording this episode, I put together a blog post with everything I know about the story of Valla.

Someone Posted a Dick Pic – Episode 043

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote in 2015, on a Tumblr blog that no longer exists. It is about a website called Twenty20 that I was participating in at the time. It is entirely possible that things have changed on that photography website between now and when I wrote this piece.

This piece of writing is not safe for work.

Someone Posted a Dick Pic

I wrote this piece on July 23, 2015, on a Tumblr blog that no longer exists. At the time, I was participating in a photo website called Twenty20. It is entirely possible that things have changed on that website between now and when I wrote this piece.

My experience there was largely disappointing, and I ended up pulling all my photos off of the site and closing my account. The thing that made me realize that Twenty20 was not for me was when someone posted a Dick Pic.

Jen’s Lore Corner: Zunimassa – Episode 009

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast, with new episodes to follow.

In this episode, I dig into the little bit of lore we have about a powerful, influential Witch Doctor named Zunimassa. Everything we know about her comes from the flavor text of the Zunimassa’s Haunt set.

My Thoughts on Diablo Immortal and BlizzCon 2018 – Episode 042

In this episode, I share a piece of my writing that I wrote shortly after returning home from BlizzCon 2018. It is about a mobile game called Diablo Immortal – and how people reacted to it.
