This is for all the girls who grew up without strong geek role models to help them discover their geek dreams. For everyone who's ever been quizzed about their video game knowledge, because girls don't play games. Geek Herring is working to bring female identifying geeks into their prime. To be the role models, dreams, and voices.

Good Work Shouldn't Go Overlooked!
I can say that this is an eye opening podcast for both men and women alike. It delves into so many poinent topics that surround femanism & gender roles in regards to geek culture. Each episode stays focused on the topic while asking some thought provoking questions! Keep up the hard and good work!

THIS is Why Podcasting IS Powerful!
Podcasting is a powerful medium! THIS Show IS Why! I don’t know everything, and I love listening to podcasts that make me think. Podcasts that help me see things differently. Evaluate my perspectives and show me ways I can improve my thinking. Keep rocking the show!
A Podcast Worth your time
As a consumer of many different type of podcasts, some that are objectively not the greatest, I can say with complete honesty that this is one worth your time!
Chemistry between hosts is essential to a podcast in my opinion, just as much as the content that is covered, and Geek Herring delivers both excellently. I am never bored listening to these women discuss whatever topic they are covering.
Words like feminism can alienate some people based on their opinions on the subject but it is presented here in a way that makes you want to listen and engage in the conversation yourself.
The nerd topics speak to me as a fellow nerd and I love listening to Monika and Amanda discuss and express their opinions.
You will not be disappointed for listening to each and every episode, time well spent! Keep up the great work.
