More Words on Gaming

Hello Everyone,

We have some exciting plans for Game on Girl in the very near future. Starting next week, we will have five new writers for the site.

Hooray! <Kermit flail>

As many of you know, Game on Girl started as the website to support my dissertation research and this year I launched the podcast to continue interviews and the conversations that started here. Now I want to take that vision a step further and bring in even more perspectives on gaming and game culture. Although each of the new writers will be introducing themselves in greater detail next week, I thought I would share brief intros of them now.

Toria (@missing_chapter) was a guest on episode 12 along with Mellisa (@somerocketeer). They’ve both been long and passionate supporters of the website and my research and I’m delighted they will be joining the Game on Girl crew. If you’re on Tumblr, you can catch some of Toria’s insights and writing there.

Sharon (@ArcticWren) is a long time gamer and was our first role player interview in episode 7. Sharon also writes for LitStack where you can find some fabulous book recommendations.

Jerry is also a role player and writer over at LVLs. He also came on the show to represent role players and cyber drag in episode 10.

Last and certainly not least is Schjoll, AKA Regina’s friend Mark. You can hear interviews with him in episode five and 14 and mentioned in many other episodes as well.

Please give them all a warm welcome!

Game on!
Regina

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.
