Mike (Inferno217), Carlo (Italianclownz aka Clownz), and Tom (ZPCI Assassin) had the pleasure of chatting with one of the most positive and seasoned community managers in the gaming industry – Lauran Carter.
Lauran (aka @TheAlbionGirl, or #FableRedHead) is currently the Community Manager for Media Molecule, the company best known for Little Big Planet, Tearaway, and Dreams (coming soon to PS4). Prior to taking her current position, she served in a similar role with the now dissolved Lionhead Studios, the creators of the Fable franchise and Black & White. While with Lionhead, she not only spoke with the gaming community online, but also at gaming conferences such as E3, where she presented Fable Legends on-stage at Microsoft’s 2014 conference.
Watch/Listen to our awesome discussion of her extensive industry career, the rise/downfall of Lionhead Studios, the hype/criticism around Fable Legends, her new journey at Media Molecule, and her feelings about the newly-announced Nintendo Switch (she’s a HUGE Nintendo fangirl)! We also talk about her 1-on-1 podcast, called Super Cool Cast, and how it is unique in the gaming podcast space.
