Movie – Captain America: Civil War
This month, Rhonda and I discuss the latest Avengers movie, Captain America: Civil War. Although billed as a Captain America movie, it is an Avengers-themed extravaganza of action and internal conflict as our heroes navigate how they operate as a superhero crime-fighting team now exposed to public criticism. Listen to hear us discuss the characters, storytelling approaches, and action in this summer blockbuster.
We also give some streaming recommendations to help fill your vacation downtime. Got a show or some movies you are binge watching this summer? Let us know in the comments.
Keep an eye out for our summer movie series that we will continue monthly through August. Also, we are looking for ambassadors to produce content for The Geek Embassy. Interested? Read the details here.
Until next time, get your geek on!

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.
