Insecure just ended it's season and the duo can barely believe it. Give that show more episodes, dammit! James watched the HBO documentary on Jane Fonda and was reminded why he loved her so much. Such an amazing life! Nnekay could relate since she watched the recent Quincy Jones Documentary. It's wonderful to honor our heroes while they are alive. Nnekay found a new video game called Supreme Courtship... about dating justices... which is as problematic as you would think it is. In the Korners- James is Getting us pumped for this November with ALL the facts on why it is truly important and necessary to make sure we all get out there and VOTE. He breaks down the Michael Moore Film 11/9 and how this could be the possible end to our democracy. Nnekay has a another great book list for you- this time on how to teach your children about consent and help curb toxic masculinity. Let's get to it!!!

Adam Ruins Everything Episode 47: Rachel Weil on Femicom and the Value of Preserving Classic 'Girl' Video Games

| 0 comments

Do you remember all of those video games that were made for girls back in the 90s? Well they're not being archived the same way that stereotypical boy games are being preserved. They don't have value in the gaming community and many of these games are being forgotten even though they were just as creative and innovative for the industry. Our guest Rachel Weil is trying to change that by preserving these 'girl' games by going around the world and collecting these games and talking to the people who made them. She is a software developer for Microsoft and the founder of the Femicom Museum, a hybrid physical/digital museum and archive dedicated to the preservation and reimagination of femininity, girlhood, and the aesthetics of cute within twentieth-century video games, computing, and electronic toys. Rachel did not appear on the Adam Ruins Everything TV show but her work reminded us of the themes we explored in our Adam Ruins Summer Fun episode. And since we're in the off-season of the TV show, we'll be inviting more guests onto the podcast whose work relates to themes we explored on the TV show or who are doing fascinating work or research that's worth discussing anyway. On the podcast Adam and Rachel had a lively discussion about gender expectations, the negative effects of marketing towards girls and boys, their favorite classic games and even their favorite savory breakfasts.

Adam is on Twitter @AdamConover and you can find past episodes and bonus content from the TruTV show at AdamRuinsEverything.com.
