Greetings Gamers! In this episode we chat with Chris Brady, one of the original interviewees from my dissertation research.
We have a great chat about all kinds of gaming and all kinds of gamers, including leading a raid in WoW and rocking out with the Mechromancer from Boderlands 2.
We also share listener responses to Sharon Browning’s recent article about permanently leaving a game. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, check it out here.
As always, we love your feedback and including your comments on the show. Keep your comments coming!
Until next time, game on!
Regina & Rhonda
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.
