James “Grim” Desborough is a game designer, author, YouTuber, and expert on Gamergate. He is the author of “Inside Gamergate: A Social History of the Gamer Revolt”, which he wrote as a participant on the “other side” of the Gamergate controversy.  

I talked to Jim about the lead up to that, how the original Internet wasn’t like this, the impact that GamerGate had on the culture wars we find ourselves in now, what it means to be the “wrong kind of lefty” in the current climate… and whatever else happens to come up.
