I knew nothing about games.
That was nine years ago. Since then we’ve recorded One Life Left around the world, hosted events like Marioke, and I even know what a Drivatar is.”
One of the episodes she is most proud of invited women developers, artists and journalists to talk about and celebrate their work.
This year Scantlebury wants to do even more, utilising her experience as an audio producer and director, and four years working in audiobooks to actually help make games.
