I am Drew Scanlon, former Giant Bomb video producer, current purveyor of Cloth Map, and Blinking White Guy. AMA!
Hi Reddit! I'm Drew. From 2008 until a little over a week ago, I was a video producer at Giant Bomb, a website about video games. Giant Bomb was the best job I've ever had, but I decided to leave my dream job to pursue another dream, a solo project called Cloth Map.
Cloth Map is a crowdfunded travel documentary series that aims to examine the people and places of the world through the lens of games, thereby illuminating the similarities between seemingly disparate cultures. In short, it's the culmination of pretty much all of my interests and skills into one all-encompassing pursuit. I could not be more excited.
But enough about me! I'm here to answer YOUR questions, be they about this new gig, Giant Bomb and the video game industry at large, airplanes, meditation, North Korea, memehood, ABBA's greatest hits, whatevs. Let's do it!
EDIT: Thanks, everyone! I'm gonna get back to work (I should probably take a shower at some point too). You can reach me on Twitter, Patreon, or the Cloth Map website. Thanks so much, this was awesome!!
