Episode 9: Neuromyths with Laura Flores Shaw

Our current episode is about Neuromyths. Given they are so voluminous, varied, and undying (even flamethrowers don't seem to work on them), this will be just one of many. Jayme couldn't make it this episode, but Laura Flores Shaw joins us to chat!  Also, we sip Lemonade in honor of Beyonce (Deb saw her live just before the podcast was posted and has been torturing everyone around her by talking about it incessantly).  Also, Deb guested on the Not Your Mama's Gamer podcast with the amazing Samantha Blackmon and Alisha Karabinus, so check it out!
