James is back this week, and it’s time to get serious

Also this week, we have John Carmack opening up about his thoughts on the current state of the video game industry, and we wrap things up with Hector going over ALL the Cyberpunk announcements from this last week.
Our Boss Room this episode is about all the horrible things going on to women in the world of game development.
