The Optional is a fresh take on the world of video game coverage. We believe that there needs to be more diversity in the games media world. There aren't a ton of games podcasts out there with hosts who look and sound like us.
Not only just people of color but those of us who don't necessarily subscribe to the status quo's template for what a gamer should be. We also want to connect with everyone out there who may want to jump back into games or jump in for the first time.
This is video game commentary for the rest of us.
