Humans of Gaming 189 | Ryan Bowdre of true[X] on Earning the Right to Speak

SHOW NOTES

Ryan Bowdre is a pretty nice guy. An L.A. native and avid¬†Super Smash Bros.¬†player, Ryan started with Disney Interactive as a QA tester before joining the team at Blizzard as a test analyst. Though this time at Blizzard, and now true[X], Ryan was active in his faith but believed that you had to earn the right to speak into someone’s life, something that runs counterintuitive in a day where social media gives everyone a platform to say what they think. Drew and Chris talk to Ryan about his experiences at Blizzard before the lawsuit from the State of California and how he grew up in L.A.
