Humans of Gaming 178 | Yannick LeJacq on Health Insurance, Games Journalism, and Religion Part 1

SHOW NOTES

Yannick LeJacq joins Drew and Chris for the inaugural 2021 season of Humans of Gaming! Reminiscing about their days as writers for Kill Screen, Drew and Yannick talk about the absurdity of the US health care system with its “gamification” of absurd roadblocks that benefit everyone but the patient. The conversation moves onto Yannick’s Jewish upbringing and his experiences writing for Kotaku.

Yannick is also recovering at the time of publishing from a double hernia operation and is in need of some love. Please consider donating to his GoFundMe campaign to show some love to this nerd.
