On July 21st the State of California Department of Fair Employment and Housing announced it was pursuing litigation against Activision-Blizzard due to multiple claims of harassment and discrimination against their female employees. Nick and Katie discuss the news ranging from their reaction to their concern for the victims and their disappointment with Blizzard and attempt to process what happened. Thank you for listening to The Tauren & the Goblin. Please believe women and fight harassment and discrimination wherever you may find it.


Nick Zielenkievicz

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
