Welcome to Game on Girl!
Nananea returns in the first episode of season 2 of my original podcast. For this episode, we chat with Nananea about what she’s been up to in the five years since we originally had her on the show. She shares her experiences as a community manager for Robot Entertainment and her story about working her way into the game industry. We also talk in-depth about a pretty significant personal announcement she made a few months ago. She shares her experience with us and describes the joy of knowing she has a truly supportive community around her. I must admit, it was a very moving discussion.

The Gamer Types
In the second segment of the show, I talk with the content manager for The Geek Embassy, Isabela. In bringing back Game on Girl, I realized just how long it has been since I talked about the Gamer Types from my dissertation. I grill Izzie (nicely!) about what she remembers about the types and introduce a NEW gamer type that I am adding to the mix. Keep an eye out for an article detailing each Gamer Type and my modifications soon.

Until next time, game on!

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
