by STEM Read Staff

On this episode of the STEM Read Podcast, we’ve got three perspectives on technology, empathy and e-sports. Host Gillian King-Cargile (@gkingcargile) and Kristin Brynteson (@kbrynteson) interview George Couros, author of The Innovator’s Mindset, about creating a positive atmosphere for students by using technology to bring people together.

Next, Gillian talks to NFL-kicker-turned-sci-fi-author Chris Kluwe about sports, e-sports, empathy in gaming, and how all of that informed his first novel, Otaku. We interviewed Chris Kluwe at C2E2. Special thanks to C2E2 and Tor for making the interview possible!

Finally, Gillian talks to Keisha Howard, co-founder of Sugar Gamers, about representation in the video game industry and ways to support girls and women in all aspects of gaming. All of these experts share great advice to help you teach, shelter, and stay positive during these unprecedented times.
