Owners and podcasters of Girl Tribe Gaming, Jen & Zen, were able to answer a few of my interview questions about their popular gaming community and podcast -
Q: How did you get started in gaming?
Zen: After countless times begging my parents and letters to Santa I ended up getting my first system. It was the NES. I got it in the mid-90's from my grand-parents.
Jen: My gaming days started in arcade of smoke filled bowling alleys. My dad gave me a stack of quarters to keep me busy while he was bowling in a league. Once a week I got to play games like Pac Man, Galaga and Pole Position.
Q: Can you give us some insight into Girl Tribe Gaming's history? How did this gaming podcast begin?
As for the podcast origins, we thought it would be a fun way for us to share our thoughts about gaming. To be honest we are both super shy people. It took us close to a year to finally publish the first episode. It has been a crazy journey filled with a ton of learning experiences and fun moments! It is very rewarding when new members join our forum and mention they have listened to the podcast.
For the Girl Tribe Gaming Podcast our goal is to publish a show that shares our unique prospective on video games and geek culture. Every episode we strive to learn something new and keep pushing ourselves to improve and bring something new and entertaining to our listeners. A huge Achievement Unlocked goal would be to have Felicia Day on the show.
Q: And finally, if you could request one feature/module to be added to Enjin, what would it be?
Jen & Zen: We really want an official Enjin mobile app. Some features we want include: A mobile version the entire site, the ability to easily make forum posts, wall posts, and chat functionality.
