This week we’ve gone back to the well again, and this time we came up with Randark from the Return of the Retro podcast and blog. Like the similarly titled episode before it, which guest starred Wolfy’s Eyes, this is a show where the community member comes up with the topic for discussion and we delve into it. As you will hear during the introduction, I plan to make this a regular feature, probably somewhere around once a month or so, and if you are interested in joining us, let us know in the comments or via Twitter. Of course, if I don’t hear from anyone by the time this comes around again, I’ll put out the casting call on Twitter myself. This time around, Randark wanted to talk about the Toxicity of Gaming Communities, so we spent quite a bit of time talking about League of Legends, Smite, MMOs, and forum and blogging communities. We also try to come up with some solutions to the problem, but as we all know, there hasn’t been a great way to solve this problem yet, and it’s not going away. Anyway, enjoy the show.
