The Doc returns to the show from a brief hiatus and there are lots of topics to discuss. Mark joins Regina and Rhonda to discuss the Ban Bossy campaign promoting leadership in girls. Does one word have major impact on how kids view themselves?
Our hosts also take on the Star Trek spin-off Enterprise. Does Enterprise Suck or Succeed? Do you think our hosts agree or disagree on this topic? Listen to find out!
Leave us your ideas on the use of “bossy” and your thoughts on Enterprise.
Until next time, game on!
Regina & Rhonda & Mark
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.
