espionage

Greetings Geeks and welcome to another episode of Game on Girl! My apologies for the lag in episode releases for Game on Girl. I came back with the best of intentions for monthly content on our podcast feed but as my favorite poet says, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” That’s certainly how the last few months have gone for me. But I am back with a fantastic LIVE episode interviewing Jaimie Cordero from Espionage Cosmetics. We met up at Rose City Comic Con on September 8th. I attended Jaimie’s panel, Level Up: Be a Nerd Boss on Friday ofRead More →

gamer types

In the first episode of season two of Game on Girl, Isabela and I discussed the gamer types that I used in my dissertation research. The gamer types were a significant part of the research I did and shaped the foundation of the podcast. In bringing back the show, it is important to clearly define them for our new discussions. As I revisited the gamer types in preparation for relaunching the show, I realized I wanted to add a new category to the types. Social gamers, I thought, were primarily interested in gaming for the social interactions, for the personal connections games can bring toRead More →

living computers

Greetings, Geeks! Welcome back to season two of Game on Girl! I have an amazing interview this week with Matisse Fletcher from the Living Computers Museum + Labs in Seattle, Washington.

depths

As I hope you all know by now, I recently joined a new community of writers trying to get their books published: Inkshares. I jumped into a contest for the Nerdist for books about video games and found myself in a strange new land surrounded by strange new customs. Every heroine needs a guide as she begins her journey and Evan Graham was my guide. He introduced me to this strange land and the powerful community could be made there. About Tantalus Depths But this post isn’t about me or my book, it’s about Evan and his amazing novel, Tantalus Depths. This novel tells the storyRead More →

screenshot google hangout podcast

Greetings, Geeks! Here is our latest hangout as a podcast episode. We had a great time hanging out and talking about recent movies, and TV shows, and our favorite geek couples. There are some pretty great offerings throughout the show. Let us know what you think in the comments! Keep an eye on this space. I can’t give too much away right now but a lot of changes will be happening here at Game on Girl. That’s why you haven’t heard much from us recently… there is lots and lots of activity happening behind the scenes. I’ll just say these are some BIG changes andRead More →

Hey Geeks, My apologies that I’m posting this episode so late. I was out of town for most of January and living with very limited DSL… the kind where it’s impossible to stream anything or have two computers working online at once. I don’t think I have ever been so frustrated in my entire life! (So if you even have to guess, I am that person who turns into a monster when the internet is slow.) So I am just getting our January hangout posted as a podcast episode. We had a great time talking about our favorite geek moments from 2015 and we spentRead More →
