    SO I listened to the second episode and discovered that there was a weird 3 minute silent spell about 20 minutes from the end. I went in and edited out and uploaded the edited version to the server.

    I also thought about some of the things that we talked about in the podcast. Sarah said that Bejeweled isn’t gendered. I have to disagree I think that it is gendered even in it’s design. I think the use of colorful jewels in and of itself is stereotypical. I also have to call myself on saying that the time management games are all female themed. As I was grocery shopping and standing in line I was looking for a way to pass the time in the crazy Super Bowl Saturday line and found Game Dev Story on my phone. It’s a game design company time management game, but this is still new. Just sayin’ :-)
