WELCOME TO GAME ON GIRL!
Game on Girl is a weekly podcast hosted by Regina McMenomy and Rhonda Oglesby. We interview gamers and discuss games, gaming, and game culture. We also have a regular segment, Games in Pop Culture, where we talk about representations of games and gaming in mainstream media. We're always looking for topic suggestions and for new gamers to have on the show. Send us a Tweet or an email and let us know if you're interested in chatting with us!
Regina McMenomy, Ph.D.
Hey everyone! Thanks for checking out the site. ”Game on Girl” is the culmination of my dissertation research, an exploration of identity and gamer girls through individual interviews. My academic areas of specialization include feminist performance theory, identity formation, and online representation. I live in the Pacific Northwest where you’ll find me gaming on a regular basis (“DocLizz” on Steam), and attending local cons like PAX and Emerald City ComiCon (ECCC). I also teach at Washington State University, where I got my Ph.D. in May of 2011, and at Concordia University Online.
Rhonda has always been a geek, but didn’t really know it. After exhausting all math classes in high school, she and classmates convinced a teacher to develop a curricula for a higher level math class. She received dual degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science and promptly went to work for a defense contractor. She did geeky stuff there, but she’d have to kill you to tell you. Her geekdom went into mild hibernation for a few years, but gradually started to surface through computer games and web design. In recent years, Rhonda’s geek flag flies through things like computer and console gaming, boardgames, geocaching, and a tech blog, DroolOnTheFrog, she writes with her husband. She writes software for a living but creates art because her soul demands it.
