These two geek girls created a podcast specifically to talk about women in gaming. (I had the honor of being interviewed for their podcast, and you can listen to that episode here.) But their Geek Herring podcast covers much more, including women in epsorts, feminism in video games, JK Rowling, Nintendo’s Animal Crossing, The Realm of the Elderlings series by Robin Hobb, and much more.
If you’re a geek and you’re a woman, you will love Monika and Amanda’s podcast. They want every geek girl to know they’re not alone and they’re seen and supported. Listen to these two delightful women dish about Harry Potter LARP (live-action role play), how they feel about being underrepresented in video games, and how they feel about JK Rowling as Harry Potter fans.
