Humans of Gaming 135 | Greg Lobanov of Wandersong on Shared Adversity and Community


About This Episode

Greg Lobanov of the hit indie title Wandersong talks with the crew about his 6 month trek across the United States on his bicycle that taught him about shared adversity and community. Starting in the North East, Greg and a small team made it all the way to Miami, FL before everyone backed out of the trip leaving him alone to complete the journey West. During this time he encountered both feelings of fear and elation as the best of humanity’s compassion presented itself to him and bikers he crossed showed solidarity with sometimes no more than a nod of the head.

Greg also talks about his family from Russia where Bibles were illegal during his youth and how a CIA agent smuggled Bible’s into the country and helped to baptize his mother in secret. Growing up in Philly, Greg attended a Roman Catholic school and while he does not follow the teaching of the church, he believes in the soul and the need for all people to be kind and do good to make the world a better place.
