Gaming Broad(cast) Episode 03: Gaming Alone

Welcome to the end of JD’s childhood! Just kidding. But also this episode really is about childhood. In this episode you’ll hear a lot about what growing up with games was like for JD and Kyle. JD and Kyle can trace their different styles of gaming back to when they were wee gamers, with JD leaning more towards gaming alone and Kyle preferring to maximize the power of friendship. Of course, the lack of ladies in multiplayer and public gaming spaces is nothing new, but JD questions whether harassment is the only reason women don’t want to whip out the ol’ voice chat mic. Could there be other reasons behind the lack of women and girls gaming in public? Kyle really does ruin JD’s childhood, though. Like. Really bad. “More than one dead kitten” kinda bad.

Gaming Broad(cast) Episode 02: South by South Cast

See SXSW Gaming like you’ve never seen it before… through audio. Tag along with JD and Kyle as they frolic through the retelling of JD’s FIRST EVER and Kyle’s DEFINITELY NOT FIRST EVER SXSW experience. Highlights include talking about video games for people who don’t like video games, trying to understand what the heck “fun” means, irritating question askers (one of whom may or may not be JD herself), Kyle stealing all of JD’s potential friends, Kyle the Illustrator (but not the Kyle you’re thinking of), JD’s strange and passionate love of bloody cymbal crashes, and three tabletop games from Kickstarter that are just plain ol’ super neat. Also Kyle loves Devolver and JD messes up not one, not two, but THREE different names and game titles. And those are just the comical errors she knows about! The possibilities are endless.
