GoG Short #8 – Convergence Con & Women Gamers

In this week’s short episode, we talk to Grethade, a member of NewbCast Gaming’s podcast, about a panel discussing Women Gamers at Convergence Con in Bloomington, Minnesota.

He reports how many of the same issues we talk about on the show were discussed, including how all gamers need to work together to stop harassment, and some male perspectives about playing female avatars.

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on the episode. Leave a comment here or Drop us a Tweet @game_on_girl.
