Description

NYMGamer’s podcast hosts and guests past and present include scholars, writers, and professionals from a variety of industries, but the focus is always the same: unpacking games from a feminist perspective, and having a good time while we’re at it.

Fun and Informative

This podcast as all about women's issues in gaming. The three women who host are all college professors or grad students, so they have a unique academic angle as well. Anyone interested in gaming, feminism, or listening to smart, funny women should subscribe.

Serious stuff

When I was a kid, I always wanted to be the dude on the back of those issues of Nintendo Power. You know the guy: buzz cut with a sweet mullet, walls plastered with posters of Mario, Link, and Samus. I always envisioned myself as that dude, resting my tired LA Lights on my stacks of EGM and Nintendo Power, one hand in a bag of Cheetos, the other inserted into a PowerGlove. I thought about how I'd yell at my sister to go fetch me more Dr. Pepper while a my hyper-color t-shirt morphed colors due to the perspiration dripping from my body as I knocked a dude out in a jousting match in Skate-or-Die. Alas, I was never as rad as that dude and I had neither the ability nor the disposable income to emit such rad-itude...

But listening to this podcast is the closest thing to being that rad. Are you rad?

Better late than never!

The issues raised in these podcasts are ones every gamer--be they social, competitive, casual, whatever--should be aware of. In a field dominated by masculine tropes and gender stereotypes, the NYMG women bust open a can of knowledge every episode, drawing on their academic and gamerly backgrounds, to open up insightful and important grounds in the games we enjoy. Also, they give away free stuff from time to time, and that's awesome!
