What will YOU be doing Thursday at 10 PM EST? I know what I’ll be doing – speaking on Geek Soul Brother’s podcast about “Women in Geek Media”! It’s my first time on a podcast and I’m really excited (and nervous but shhh! don’t tell anyone!).
“In honor of Women’s History Month, Geek Soul Brother Live! presents Two Women’s Panels to focus on ‘Women in Geek Media’ – Scheduled Tuesday and Thursday, March 12th and 14th at 10 PM EST. Gathered together are these exceptional Ladies of Geekdom to discuss the roles and images of women in film, television, comics, anime and even games.
Tuesday’s Panel will feature the Ladies from: Black Girl Nerds – She Movie Geek – Joker and Thief Podcast – Cinema in Noir – Blerdology – as well as Melody Cooper.
Thursday’s Panel will feature the Ladies from: Cinema Schminema – Girl Gone Geek – Lockettedown Productions – Surfing Aliens – as well as Emily Einolander and Marissa Sutton.
Here are a few of the many topics:
- Where did the hipsters come from and why do they make ‘real’ geek girls mad?
- When male writers get a female character right, where do they still miss the mark?
- What will it take to get more women in the creative seat?
So mark your calendars and be sure to join us on Geek Soul Brother Live! at Talkshoe.com (http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/118765) on Tuesday and/or Thursday, March 12th and 14th at 10 PM EST. for a live podcast that can’t be missed!”
So maybe if you’re around and doing nothing else, you’ll tune in for what I’m sure will be an excellent discussion on women in geek media culture. And don’t just listen Thursday, check it out tonight too – it’s only an hour away! 🙂
Some (if not all of you) have been participators in Head in a Vice’s Desert Island Films feature (and if not, please go check it out especially if you’re fond of learning more about your fellow bloggers because it is great fun and super insightful!). Well, Tyty (ha, no longer your birthday!) has recently hooked up with the guys over at Extra Features, a movie review podcast that’s great fun. They’ve featured a couple of the Desert Island Films lists from his site and in their most recent podcast they featured mine! Thanks, guys!!! The list is featured near the end but the whole podcast was fun as they discuss a plethora of horror movies (including Nightmare on Elm Street!!). I’ve also been chatting with them via Twitter the past couple of weeks and from what I can tell they are megacool. So if you’re into podcasts, check these fellas out!
And you can check out their most recent episode featuring my Desert Island Films list HERE! Thanks again, guys!! This was highly enjoyable and I will definitely keep listening in!
