My guest this week is one of the most wholesome people on the Internet — a Twitch streamer who goes by Blizzb3ar. His goal is to create refuge from drama and competitiveness and cynicism, and for viewers to be able to relax in the comfort of good clean kind fun. It’s the sort of environment that he realized he was missing for himself, and now he’s got big goals for transforming his life in 2021.

We’ll have that conversation in a minute. First a quick thanks to everyone who supports the Sewers of Paris on Patreon.

And just a reminder that I’ve started a new weekly newsletter for all the stuff I’m working on. You can sign up at mattbaume.com — each week I give you a little sneak peek into upcoming projects, little bits of weird fun cultural artifacts I’ve uncovered in various archives, and of course links to cute animal videos.

Also check out my YouTube videos for deep dives into queer pop culture history. I just posted a video about why San Francisco in the 1970s was one of the most exciting times in history to come out of the closet, by way of Harvey Milk and Cloris Leachman. That’s at youtube.com/mattbaume.

And I hope you’ll join me for regular videogame livestreams over atTwitch.tv/mattbaume every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon at 2pm pacific. Lately I’ve been playing my way through Undertale and having a lot of feelings.
