Humans of Gaming 175 | Mxiety on the Tangled State of Mental Health Discussion


About This Episode

Drew and Chris host author and streamer Maria “Mxiety” Shanley as part of our series celebrating women in the game industry. M, as she likes to be called, tells an amazing story of her youth: being kidnapped by her mother to Russia, public panic attacks that ended one career and helped push her on the path to the one she wanted, and how the movie Tangled changed her life.
