How Twitch failed to create a safe space for staff and streamers | Podcast

Latest episode delves deeper into the stories of sexual assault and racism at the company behind the leading streaming site

In our latest episode, the team discusses the biggest stories of the week -- or, in this instance, story.

We delve deeper into Brendan's extensive exposé on the toxic culture at Twitch, which extends across both the office and the site itself. 

The team explores a story that ranges from allegations of sexual assault and racism to defaction on the walls and a relaxed attitude to the Klu Klux Klan, as we debate how other companies can learn from Twitch's mistakes.
