From abuse to healing: How Joel from Phoenix Retro Gaming found solace in gaming – Interview Inside

We had the pleasure of interviewing Joel from Phoenix Retro Gaming. Here are the excerpts from the interview. 

Hi Joel, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about yourself.

Hi, I am new to Phoenix Retro Gaming, but I stream Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning from 10 am to noon MDT. I mostly stream older games as part of my healing journey after escaping an abusive situation and going full no contact; streaming also helps me learn to interact with people better.


What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey? 

I don’t know if I can say I’m “successful” by any measurable metric, but my strategy is to fly by the seat of my proverbial pants and just do what I love. 

Any message for our readers? 

There are two kinds of people in this world, those who only know how to remind you the odds are against you, and those who know, don’t care, and find a way to beat the odds. Never tell me the odds. 

Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?

I can be found on Instagram @phoenix_retro_gaming and on Twitch where I stream Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 10 am to noon MDT where starting Wednesday, June 7, 2023, I’ll be streaming a game I have built called Z-Con Protocol, the plot follows a soldier that goes back in time to prevent the zombie apocalypse. 


Thank you so much, Joel, for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
