About UsThe Border House is a blog for gamers. It's a blog for those who are feminist, queer, disabled, people of color, transgender, poor, gay, lesbian, and others who belong to marginalized groups, as well as allies.

The Border House Podcast – Episode 8: Kickstarter and Crowd Funded Games
[caption id="attachment_8792" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Green "Funded with Kickstarter" badge."][/caption] We recorded a podcast about Kickstarter/crowd funded games awhile back and I neglected to put it up on the site right away. I apologize to everyone for that oversight. The audio quality of this one isn't ideal but the enthusiastic discussion we had was a lot of fun. We were joined by Deirdra Kiai, Jonathan Lavallee, Kimadactyl, and it was hosted by Gunthera1. Are there any Kickstarter projects that are of special interest to you right now? What do you think of some of the projects that have been funded recently? Finally, if there are any topics you would like to see covered in future podcasts then please let us know in the comments.
