Michelle and Heather Nunnelly are back after a short one week break! Heather talks about the Lara Croft piece she completed for deviantART’s Tomb Raider Contestwhile Michelle dozes off in the background.

Heather also mentions her recent interview with QRD, a web zine by Sequential Underground guest Brian John Mitchell.

The topic for the episode is girls and gaming — women who play video games, female characters in video games, and women who create video games. They give a shoutout to Anita Sarkeesian and her YouTube channel Feminist Frequency.

Also check out Heather’s deviantART journal entry to see the feedback she received when she asked her DA friends about their experiences as girl gamers.
