I had the opportunity yesterday to do not one, but two radio programs with the esteemed Xeni Jardin of Boing Boing and NPR’s Day to Day fame. We ran into each other a few times at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, chatting for a few minutes about life, the universe, and everything. Unfortunately, we spent more time together on the radio yesterday than we did in realspace.

That said, we had a great discussion about women and games on Seattle’s KUOW The Works. We come in at 27:20 (although, unfortunately, it’s only in REAL format). We mainly covered two points: the expanding reach of women gamers and the marketing of games towards women.
