Why are we talking about World of Warcraft on a show about sexuality? If you’ve ever spent time in an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game), chances are good you’ve experienced some ugly sexism, homophobia and racism.

Dylan Szewczak figured out a way to create an abuse-free oasis in World of Warcraft, and Steven interviews him to find out his secret. Spoiler alert: It’s something we can all do every day to create abuse-free environments in the real world.

This week, we talk with our guest Verita Black Prothro, about Black Panther, its evolved gender roles and how those affect the onscreen relationships. We also address the issue of toxic masculinity and how loneliness could be contributing to our nation’s shooting crisis. And then there’s drunk sex, and what we all need to understand about consent.  

Note: Listen to this podcast only after you have watched Black Panther, unless you love spoilers!
