Microphone GAIN

By Jim Munroe
The Game Arts International Network is hosting a number of online sessions to share information of interest to game arts organizers and curators. The format we're starting with will be a live discussion between two people, one with experience on a topic and one seeking more information on that topic, while anyone else who's interested can listen in. At the end this audience will be able to add their comments and ask questions. We will be recording these sessions and releasing them as a podcast for those who aren't available or who find out about it later.
