The #GamerGate Episode Guide

Since the consumer revolt against corruption in the media known as #GamerGate exploded in August 2014, we have done several episodes featuring extensive news, analysis and discussion of  the issues, each with a corresponding Show Notes post with the many, MANY source links and videos from which we drew our topics. As many hours as we've spent on the show talking about it, it's but a mere sliver of the vast bulk of information out there.

While it's by no means all-inclusive, it does provide a substantial basis for our listeners to read for themselves the side the corrupt and ideologically-biased media specifically refuses to admit exists and actively lies about in their reporting. Unlike the biased media, we present the evidence and allow you to determine its veracity. We don't just say "listen and believe" us; we want you to KNOW and THINK for yourselves. 

This post will be updated to add episodes with significant segments (i.e. more than just a few quick items) about #GamerGate.

UPDATE 8/13/2017: We are tagging the episodes discussing the Google Memo here because it heavily features how the media has distorted the actual contents of the memo to advance the false SJW narratives. (i.e. If you see it described as "anti-diversity", you're looking at lies.)
