Hello everyone and welcome to Game on Girl the podcast!
Episode #1 – What Does it Mean to be a gamer?
Please follow and subscribe to my new podcast available here or click play on the player below! This first show discusses two of the main questions from the interviews, namely “How do you define a gamer?” and “What does it mean to be a gamer?” This episode is a compilation of the interviews I conducted but as the show evolves I’ll be conducting new interviews. If you’d like to chat about gaming, and game culture, send me an email.

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.
