Realistically, there are only so many names the audience will remember though. They talked about more people knowing movies stars and rock stars, but the world isn't as familiar with cinematographers, wardrobe designers, lighting experts, etc.
It also reminded me of a recent post on reddit's r/rpgdesign where the top voted comment had almost the complete opposite take. I can probably name about two dozen designers, but I'd like to know more. And some of the ones I'm letting myself count are like, "Bob... Something that starts with T? I know what his face looks like, and I can list his games."
Also, hi! This is my first post. Been listening to the podcast for about a year now, and finally found my way to the forums 🙂
