The GamesIndustry.biz team gather around their mics to discuss the biggest news of the past week.

First up, we explore the current backlash Twitch is facing over increased hate raids targeting marginalised streamers, which has prompted content creators to plan a day-long strike from using the platform.

Twitch claims it is working to improve its tools, but the site's own transparency report and our exposé on the company culture aren't in its favour.

Next, we discuss the scrutiny around Roblox and its divisive monetisation model, further thrown into light by a recent investigation suggesting the company is exploiting young game developers.

Finally, we touch on the conversation around Boyfriend Dungeon, its triggering storylines, and the delicate balance between exploring sensitive subjects in games and impacting your audience in an unintended way.

Title music composed by Thomas Marchant. Episode produced by Thomas Quilfeldt.
