On Wednesday, this reporter was interviewed on the Gaming Morning Show, a radio show hosted on Twitch by Ryan Goff, Shawn Barnes and Mike O.

Topics were drawn from recent gaming coverage at Technical.ly, including stories on downtown Baltimore community center┬áM.A.P Technologies, and a feature from Technical.ly’s How I Got Here series with VR game design pro Karen Chang.

The full Gaming Morning Show runs from 6 to 9 a.m. PST — that’s 9 a.m. to noon on the East Coast.

In the video below, the interview starts around the 1 hour 25 minute mark, but check out the full show. It’s filled with great discussions on the power of community, the nebulous rules of monopoly, sports, and this episode’s topic of the day: bubblegum.

For bonus points, tell Technical.ly Baltimore and Gaming Morning Show your favorite bubblegum (mine is Bubblicious) on Twitter.
