Revision Path is a Glitch Media Network podcast, and is produced by Deanna Testa and edited by Brittani Brown.
Catt Small has been one of our most requested guests over the past few years, so we’re starting off August by bringing her back on the show!
Our conversation began with her talking about her day to day work as a product designer at Etsy, and then she spoke about her projects: Good for PoC and the 2017 Game Devs of Color Expo through her game development company Brooklyn Gamery. Catt and I also discussed the state of the gaming community for people of color, the importance of funding (including the pitfalls of crowdfunding), and we chatted about her public speaking and what she wants to accomplish for the remainder of 2017. It’s amazing to see how far Catt has come, and I bet we’re going to see a lot more from her in the future!

2014 has been quite a busy year! I officially launched the podcast, and that has helped Revision Path spread to listeners in over three dozen countries. Not only that, we’ve gotten a few sponsors, so who knows what’s in store for 2015?
To wrap things up for this year, we’ve pulled together our ten most popular interviews here on Revision Path based on listens, downloads, page views, social sharing, and overall web traffic. Check them out after the jump and see if your favorite interview made the list!
Catt Small is her name and there’s no shame in her game. I talked with the Bronx-born UX designer/developer about how she got started, the need for greater representation in the tech field, her work with Brooklyn Gamery and The Code Liberation Foundation, and even geeked out over gaming for a bit and talked about fighters and racial and gender representation in gaming.
NOTE: The audio quality is a bit rough.
