Greetings, Gamers, and welcome to Episode 2 of Game on Girl! So the second show ended up taking a slightly different path than I originally expected.  Instead of jumping back into the interviews I did for my dissertation, I turned the tables and had my new co-host, Rhonda, interview me with many of the same questions I asked during the original interviews!  So give it a listen and let me know what you think!
