Love, Romance, and Representation [Part 1]

Abu (@abu_zafar) and Leo (@LeoWigginsVO) are joined by MJ (@ihoardlibraries) from the Reignite podcast to explore romance and representation in Mass Effect.

MJ shares how the Mass Effect series played a role in shaping her identity (4:44), everyone reveals who they first romanced in the games (11:43), and we wrap up with a discussion about both the good and bad steps BioWare took when it comes to represenation in the series (23:48).

In Part 2 of this episode, we dive into an in-universe exploration of how society's views on love, romance, and sexuality change when aliens are introduced.

This is an [Easy] level episode, which means you will be able to follow the discussion even if you haven’t played the game. Expect spoilers.
