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! Regina

S3E3 - Super Bowl Half Time Shows and Sexuality
Did you watch the Super Bowl? Were you surprised by the half time show? In this episode, I talk about how my attention was drawn to the half time show. Reactions from friends and articles appearing in my news feed made it impossible for me not to watch it. As I am not a sports fan, it's not the kind of performance that usually draws my attention. But I'm glad I took the time to watch.  Did you watch the show? Was it just on in the background? What were your thoughts about the performance? Let me know @doclizz! Oh and who won the game? I don't think it was the 49ers or else I would have heard my cousins shouting about it from several states over. :) Until next time, game on! Regina

S2E3 - Jaimie Cordero from Espionage Cosmetics
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 of the con. Hearing her speak on the panel left me with many of the questions you hear in the interview. Of particular note is the way that Jaimie runs much of her business like she would run a raid in the glory days of WoW and the Burning Crusade (B.C.) expansion. Recording Live Live episodes present their own challenges and this one is no exception. I was able to edit out some of the background noise and the interruptions we faced but the recording is still a bit rough. Thankfully, you can hear Jaimie and that's the important part. She shares a truly personal story with us, one she admits she doesn't share often and leaves us with such a great message. I am so thankful that she agreed to the interview. It was beyond the highlight of the con for me. Espionage Swag I was able to get some pretty cool stuff that just happened to be out of stock (!) on the site at the time. One of my favorite moments of this interview wasn't recorded. When I sat down, Jaimie took one look at my nerd wrapped nails and said, "Oh you're an OG fangirl." I showed off my nails and she said, "I've been involved in every nail wrap run we've done for the company and I can tell you those wraps are five years old! It's great to see they still hold up!" And hold up they did. I wore the classic "Chainmail" wraps all weekend. To Discuss What is your best networking advice? What's a difficult moment you've had in your life that shaped a big decision? Let me know on Twitter @doclizz. Until next time, game on! Regina

S2E1 – Nananea Returns!
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.

We also talk in-depth about a pretty significant personal announcement she made a few months ago.

Check out her Patreon and subscribe to her Twitch and YouTube channels. 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. To Discuss What is your biggest motivation for gaming? To escape? To connect? Let us know in the comments!

Game on Girl is Back!
Hello Everyone. This is Regina from The Geek Embassy. If you’ve been a fan of the podcast for anytime you know we’ve gone through some changes in the past few years. We started out as the Game on Girl podcast and then expanded to become The Geek Embassy. Along with the expansion of the site much of our podcast content changed. The Geek Embassy looks at pop culture in a much broader and more topical way, talking about recently released TV shows and movies, books we find interesting, and a Pathfinder campaign written by one of our ambassadors. It’s great content, fun and engaging, but definitely different from where I started on my podcasting journey. What we haven’t done a lot of lately are interviews and honestly, I’ve been missing that part of podcasting. Really, it was talking about gender and gaming that got me started podcasting in the first place. So I’ve decided to bring Game on Girl back and to start hosting interviews again. In an effort to prioritize quality over quantity, and to maintain some of my sanity, I will be doing interviews once a month. But don’t worry! The Geek Embassy will still be doing regular episodes of Watches, Reads, and Plays on its very own podcast feed. You can  Check it out at   This feed will go back to what it started as, Game on Girl: Conversations about Gaming and this podcast will become part of The Geek Embassy podcast network. So stay tuned for more great gender and gaming content! And until next time, game on! Regina

LIVE with Evan Graham and Tantalus 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 introduced me to 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 story of Mary Ketch who is leading a survey mission deep into space.  The Diamelen’s survey mission to Tantalus 13 takes an unexpected turn when the entire planet turns out to be an ancient artificial structure. What lies in the heart of Tantalus? And why is the crew’s AI, SCARAB, willing to kill to keep its secret? Filled with adventure, exploration, tension among the crew, and dangerous artificial intelligence, this story has all the components to a great work of science fiction. On top of that, the lead character is a female pilot who is not afraid to kick ass and take names.  We discuss the writing process, running a crowdfunding campaign, and talk about some of Evan's influences while he was writing. He mentions 2001 and Star Wars as huge influences and then I compare him both to Joss Whedon and J.R.R. Tolkien. Let's just say we had a good time.  Please make sure to support Evan's campaign. He's in the homestretch to reaching full publishing on Inkshares and I cannot think of another Inkshares author who deserves it more. Go forth, Geeks, and help support one of our own in making his book a reality.  Where to Find Out More Tantalus Depths on Inkshares and Facebook Evan on Twitter and YouTube

Episode 153 - Farewell 2015 LIVE Hangout
Hey Geeks,  My apologies that I am posting this episode so late. I was out of town for most of January and living with very limited DSL... the kind where it is 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 spent a great deal of time talking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There are spoilers galore and a pretty heated discussion (on my part!) about trolls who post spoilers on purpose. Some people suck! As always, we would love to hear from you about your favorite geek moments of 2015. What was a highlight? Our next hangout is scheduled for February 21st at 2pm Pacific. We would love to have you hang with us or send us topics you would like us to discuss.  As a teaser, look for some changes coming up in the very near future with the site....  Until next time, game on!

In this month's hangout, we took on the theme of our favorite Geekdoms. What is a geekdom, you say? Well, Rhonda asked the same question and I described it as: Geekdom: A specific subset of a fandom you enjoy. So I enjoy young adult literature and Harry Potter is one of my Geekdoms within that fandom. It is a geekdombecause I can geek out on all the minor details of the story and the lore, I know and have an opinion on the major arguments between the fans, and I jump at any chance to discuss it.  Watch or listen to the episode to find out mine, Rhonda's, and Isabela's top three favorite geekdoms. I'll give you a hint: some are obvious and others quite surprising. (Rhonda's last one is my favorite!) What are some of your favorite geekdoms? Where do you put your mose intense geeky energy?
