Episode 36 - Leah Knighton: Co-Founder and CCO at Ker-Chunk Games

Leah Knighton is co-founder and Chief Creative Officer at Ker-Chunk Games. Along with co-founder and CEO Molly Proffitt she has managed to start and grow a company in a highly competitive market. They balance client work with developing their own original IP, and they're making it work. Jeremiah sat down with Leah at the Ker-Chunk office for a short conversation about how they got their business off the ground, their commitment to creating inclusive and empowering games, and what they've been working on lately. _PS: There are still a few sound issues I'm trying to learn how to avoid.

- “The reason we wanted to talk to you was because you guys are doing the thing that so many people dream about doing, and you’re making it work!” ~ Jeremiah Clark - “...we decided we wanted to be empowering to women, empowering and inclusive to different [types of gamers]... we wanted to really have a message.” ~ Leah Knighton - “[Ker-Chunk Games started as] a side hustle. We were completely boot strapped. We had no funding.” ~ Leah Knighton - Discussing how to get started in a creative field: “Put your toes in the water, do something small, and then build up from that.” ~ Leah Knighton
