Episode 144 – Headlines: Mexico, TBBT, and Tequila

This week, we discuss some current events in a headline show. For those fans of the times we disagree, this is a show for you! Listen to us debate the responsibility of celebrities to understand feminism before they answer certain loaded questions.

We are going to be doing more headlines shows this year and we’d love to hear from you about topics you’d like to hear us discuss. Leave a comment here or on our twitter @game_on_girl!

Regina is a gamer, writer, teacher, and podcaster living in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Ph.D. in 2011 from Washington State University in Vancouver and continues to teach there part time. Regina’s research interests focus on women and technology, and her dissertation discusses female gamers and identity in digital role playing games. A lifelong geek and technology enthusiast, Regina recently started a Girls Who Code club in support of their mission to close the gender gap in technology.

To continue the conversations about gender and gaming that Regina started during her research, she started a podcast called Game on Girl. Called the “NPR of game podcasts” by Chris Brown of The Married Gamers, the podcast features women involved in the game industry, and tackles some of the complicated issues in the gaming community. Season 2 began in the spring of 2018 and will premiere new episodes monthly.
