#16 Jeremy Wyatt

Having a character who is clear, open, and positive about her faith was a wonderful experience for me.

Jeremy Wyatt (Astral Era Podcast) joins us this week to discuss faith and queer identity; particularly, how Final Fantasy Tactics allowed him recontextualize his evangelical upbringing and come to terms with his homosexuality. Jeremy talks about his family's struggle with poverty and addiction, as well as time as an outreach worker for at-risk youth. Together we discuss our individual issues with organized religion, and our love of Supergiant's Pyre depiction an uplifting and progressive character of faith.

Also we talk Arizona's regressive politics, queer identity, Westboro Baptist Church, falling asleep in job interviews, friends in the church, secret baptisms, what it means to make your own family, and Robert uses Pastor K as an excuse to rave about Night in the Woods yet again.
