This week we review an excellent anthology focused on women gamers. “Chicks Dig Gaming” from Mad Norwegian press is a great collection of stories and articles we are sure you would love. We share some quotes from our favorite stories in the collection.
We WRaP up the episode with what we are Watching, Reading, and Playing. We’re loving some fall TV and new games this week.
Until next time, game on!

But the point is that, no matter what, I still want to be able to say, “I, a pretty girl in fabulous shoes, saved the galaxy; yes, thank you, please throw all roses right here.”
– “Saving the Galaxy in Cute Shoes” by Zoe Estrin-Grele from “Chicks Dig Gaming: A Celebration of All Things Gaming by the Women Who Love It”, Mad Norwegian Press, November 2014
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.
