Conversations about gaming, pop culture, and gender.

    S4 E1 - Doug Bass and Flicking Finches

    S4 E1 - Doug Bass and Flicking Finches

    Welcome back!

    My apologies it's been so long since I posted an episode. In the last few months, I've started a new job in a completely new field and am adjusting to a new schedule. Thankfully, I think this change will let me start to make content more regularly. Thank you for sticking it out with me!

    I had the pleasure to interview Doug Bass from Meridae Games about a new game he's working on. Flicking Finches is live on Kickstarter and has less than a week left to fund. This dexterity and strategy game has a lot to offer, including some delightful artwork. Check out the episode to hear Doug and I discuss the evolution of board games over the last decade and the process of developing a board game. We had a great time chatting!

    Let me know what you think! Chat me up on Twitter @doclizz!

    Until next time, game on!

    S3 E9 - Watching Lord of the Rings as a Mom

    S3 E9 - Watching Lord of the Rings as a Mom

    Greetings Gentle Listeners!

    This week Regina takes us back to the world of Lord of the Rings. She talks about what it's like to watch the trilogy now that she's a mom. Yes... it's been that long since she watched these movies. She touches briefly on how the movies have aged but really takes a deep dive into her own emotional response to one character in particular. 

    Have you ever had a similar experience? Have you watched a familiar story and had a completely different emotional reaction to one of the characters? Let Regina know on Twitter @DocLizz!

    Until next time, game on!

Tiki Guy ,

My favorite podcast about games that is way more than just games?

There are countless podcasts about game and there are countless podcasts about feminism and there are several about both, but this is the one I always go to.

Doctor Regina McMenomy is one of my favorite people, with no qualifiers. She is approachable and thoughtful, she loves the subjects she talks about. There are some feminist critics who come off as angry and while I listen to I some of them too I wouldn’t feel comfortable sending them an email with a question like I do with Dr. McMenomy I know she will listen and answer thoughtfully.

My only complaint is the episodes don’t come out as frequently as I’d like, but it does make it easier to catch up.

Love it!!

Game On Girl is one of the standout geek culture podcasts which consistently delivers a high quality listening experience, great interviews, on-point and fresh insights, and family-friendly, adult perspectives. In short, everything I look for in a podcast. Professional and reliable - you won’t regret giving Regina and Rhonda a listen.
