This week, our intern, Isabela, joins us to talk about a discussion she recently sparked on the Game on Girl Twitter feed and Facebook page. What are your favorite female friendships in TV, Movies, Books, and Video Games? We got such a great response from our community we decided to do an entire episode about it. We share our favorites and the feedback we god on Twitter and Facebook.
This week, Chris and Kelly from The Married Gamers join Regina and Mark to discuss the new first person shooter, Titanfall. After reading Susan Ardent's article, "Why TItanfall's Trailer Made Me Emotional," we were very interested in the game and its representations of gender. Chris and Kelly share their insight and experiences within the game.
The Doc returns to the show from a brief hiatus and there are lots of topics to discuss. Mark joins Regina and Rhonda to discuss the Ban Bossy campaign promoting leadership in girls. Does one word have major impact on how kids view themselves?
Our hosts also take on the Star Trek spin-off Enterprise. Does Enterprise Suck or Succeed? Do you think our hosts agree or disagree on this topic? Listen to find out!
Leave us your ideas on the use of "bossy" and your thoughts on Enterprise.
Until next time, game on!
Regina & Rhonda & Mark
Since I have Mark and Ryan on the show again, I decided to revisit the first "Top Five" list Regina and I ever did. We also discuss male tropes. Do they exist? You bet your Optimus Prime they do! Check out www.gameongirl.com for our lists!
Regina is taking some much needed time off so Ryan and I enjoy talking to Nicole Hazen, gamer, artist, and comic book fan. This is one of those conversations that lights on a new topic at every turn and you just don't have enough time to cover it all. Ryan and I WRaP about our geeky stuff and I finally play Portal 2. Check out the site for some great links and to leave your comments.

Generally, I try not to think about episodes in terms of favorites but I have to confess that our guest this week has already become a favorite. Nika Harper joins us from the Geek & Sundry vlog channel. Her new show, Story Mode, combines game play and story telling - two of the things we love the most about gaming here at Game on Girl! We talk about creative inspiration, game & geek culture, and a host of other fabulous topics. Check it out and let us know what you think on the site: www.gameongirl.com!
Inspired by recent events on The Big Bang Theory, we talk about our favorite geeky romances on this week's show. Listen to hear our top five romances and geeky moments from movies, TV, and books. Let us know your favorites in the comments at www.gameongirl.com!
We reach a significant milestone this week, dear listeners. 100 episodes of Game on Girl! Mark and Ryan join us to turn the tables and interview me and Rhonda about the last two years podcasting, our plans for the show and the site, and all the bumps in between. Would love to hear your thoughts on the show so far. We are so glad you're listening!
