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.

  1. Overdue remarks (now that I finally caught up).
    1) I listened to Ready Player One based on GoG's recommendation and enjoyed it.

    2) Re: Big Bang Theory. Regina, I don't think you're giving enough consideration to Sheldon's background. He was raised in a conservative Christian family and on some level those values are ingrained (remember how distressed he was when he saw his Mommy having sex with someone who wasn't his Daddy?). Ergo, if he absorbed and understood enough of Amy's complaints about him not investing in moving the relationship forward to decide that he should actually progress it, I don't think it's unreasonable that he would proceed to marriage prior to physical intimacy.

  2. Excellent point, Amy, and one I am kind of embarrassed I didn't think about! Now that you mention it, pleasing his mom is pretty high on Sheldon's to do list. Perhaps this is an issue that should have come up sooner. Either way, I think I do need to rewatch the episode to take your comment and Mark's into consideration. 🙂
