Episode 120 – White Willow Films

We’ve got fantastic guests for the show this week. We chat with the directors and producers of “No Princess in the Castle,” Natalie Rossetti and Dave Danzara. “No Princess in the Castle” is “a new documentary on the lives of women in gaming who, against all odds, punched through the peripheral shadows and entered the gaming world center stage.”

Check out their website and both their gaming documentaries:

Listen to the Podcast

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.
