The Tavern Chat Podcast - E 137 - Meltdown in the Roll20 SubReddit Makes Newsweek



How often does our corner of the universe make it to a news outlet like Newsweek? I'm not talking major announcements, I'm talking dumpster fires.
First, thank you for all of the support. It means more than you know. We have voicemails from Jason Hobbs and Old Man Grognard. The news section is about Roll20 moderator, cofounder and manager Nolan T banning a Reddit user, the backlash and dumpster fire that resulted and the actions taken to resolve the public relations nightmare.

  1. Must be a really slow news week at Newsweek.

  2. Thankfully for Roll20 and Nolan T. Jones, Newsweek left out the 5 white men comment. Sexism and racism on top of crapping over loyal customers!
