Here is our latest hangout as a podcast episode. Rhonda, Ryan, Isabela, and I had a great time chatting about the launch of The Geek Embassy, our adventures at Emerald City Comicon, the season finale of The Walking Dead, and some of the issues with Superman vs Batman. We also talked about what we thinks works and doesn’t work in comic book movies and TV adaptations. Check out the episode and let us know what you think in the comments. We turned the Q&A feature on this time, something completely new for us, and are thankful for Amy who taught us how to use it. We will continue to make that feature available so you can talk to us while we hangout.
Our hangouts for the next few months will continue on the second Sunday of the month at 2pm Pacific time. Mark your calendars for May 15, June 12, July 10, and August 14. If you have any topics you would like us to discuss, just let us know here or on Twitter @thegeekembassy. Rhonda and I are also starting up regular audio only episodes of the show in May so keep an eye out for those episodes as well.
Until next time, get your geek on!
Regina, Rhonda, Isabela, and Ryan
P.S., That’s my cat, Matilda, insisting on being part of the show this month.
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.
