Our guest this week is Jenny Haniver, gamer, writer, and curator of Not in the Kitchen Anymore. Jenny records her interactions playing Call of Duty on Xbox Live with a female gamer tag. Listen to hear her story about how the site came about and some of her experiences in this not so female friendly culture. A warning: Jenny shares many of the direct quotes from her gaming experience and with that a fair amount of swearing. Do you have similar experiences you’d like to share? We would love to do a follow up episode to this show with some of our listeners joining in.
We have Jenny back on the show in Episode 76 – Jenny vs Xbox Live.
Rhonda and I spend some time talking about how we are Geeking Out these days. What are you reading, watching, and playing right now? Any suggestions for us to include? Leave us your suggestions in the comments.
Until next time, game on!
Regina and Rhonda
Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
