Episode 12a – Ladies Night: Part 1

April 4, 2011 § 2 Comments


Found in the Alley is proud to present…

LADIES NIGHT!

On this very special episode we dive head long into the experiences of the fairer sex and find out they aren’t necessarily as fair or offended as we thought they would be! Which is saying something as Ryan can be very offensive, by deed or by odor. So while Ryan asks the questions and Robert conducts the conversation, our hosts get out of the way as much as they can and let the guests do the talking for once.

In this episode  we speak to Katie Connell, Nicole Rudolph, Alisha Walton and Kristin Molle about the landscape of gaming for women. With their unique perspectives on games, community, gender, and relationships we get to see how the other half lives in a hobby lifestyle predominantly populated by older, white, overweight, bearded men.

So be sure to take a listen and leave a comment.

Seriously… all she is wearing is the belot from a par of skinny jeans. http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/images/me2_jack2.jpg

However, let us not forget the plight of the poor straight male gamer. http://kotaku.com/#!5785306/dragon-age-ii-writer-eloquently-defends-the-games-sexuality-balance

    • Kristin,

      Horray!!! Ohh man I was soo thankful when I got home from class this morning. I skipped checking mail, texts and msgs so I had a happy surprise waiting at home when Ryan was able to fully restore and stitch together the podcast from last night. It was a lot of fun to do and I thank you soo much for joining us and making it happen. I am happy to be living in the future.
