Geek Herring

Critical Geek Culture

About the show

This is for all the girls who grew up without strong geek role models to help them discover their geek dreams.
For everyone who's ever been quizzed about their video game knowledge, because "girls don't play games."
Geek Herring is working to bring female identifying geeks into their prime. To be the role models, dreams, and voices.
