Hot and fresh from Gozer’s mind, to my lips, to your ears, it’s episode six of Fighting Words, the fastest podcast on the internet. Yes, I am still making that claim until somebody tells me otherwise. I’m also still calling the podcast Fighting Words no matter how many letters I’m sent from that libertarian podcast also called Fighting Words. Bring it on, libertarians. I’ve read Robert Heinlein. I know all your secrets, and I know how to get a free lunch.

In this week’s edition, I talk about being a gamer, how gamers have let the lunatic fringe dominate the discourse, why I’m sick of the mainstream media defining who I am as a gamer, and my very simple solution for rehabilitating the word.

Remember that you can subscribe to Fighting Words on iTunes and get a new episode downloaded to your iDevice each and every week.

Here’s the audio.
