It’s always a joy to talk to Felicia Day, whom I previously interviewed for my blog back in 2015.
Over the past decade, Felicia has been a pioneering icon of positivity, tolerance, and self-acceptance among those who had previously been labeled outcasts in society — the nerds, the geeks, the enthusiasts — who love what they love without reservation.
She also loves tech and gaming, and we have shared a few tech-related exchanges over the past few years related to Prodigy, her book, and a special Commodore SX-64 that she sent me earlier this year. In this interview, we talk about all of that and more.
Hope you enjoy it.
