I think you mean Film industry, there are a lot of very well known and well to do female artists.
you had a very good point about how the discussion fell flat, it was also interesting how they didnt bring up one of the most recent games depicting females, which is MGS4.
I actually will probably stand alone to say that I did not like this episode/show. I am probably jaded because I have ventured out and started listening to many other podcasts, but I just didnt enjoy the feel of this one.
(I am going to sound overly critical, and its not to be outright vicious or mean, its just the impression I got)
The podcast's tone seems like a recorded polite phone call between HT and BT (and no I am not addressing the audio quality with that). But that isn't what kills it for me...
Whenever I detect a bit of a bias or some kind of media sway, I reject everything beyond that point. This started with BMT's visit to MS X08. Everything he played was "F*cking awesome" with the same inflection for everything, even when there was a negative point, it still ended with "Great game." And there was only one negative view, and that was with MK vs DC.
The most difficult thing to do with a retro-recorded podcast is news. It's impossible to deliver "breaking news" but when the story is on something that has been covered in a GH podcast, it just seems sloppy. I am talking about the Chrono Trigger DS story. When the story is so old that it was reported on ANOTHER retro-recorded podcast (the game heroes) that this one is affiliated with is weak.
If you love boobs, then sex being sold with games should make sense...that doesn't make it right but it should be a 2 + 2= 4 thing. And BMT championed women to get out there and rise above the sexism, but when he was talking about customizing an old woman, it was "an old woman with saggy boobs" not a cane, not a Sunday hat or whatever. I mean in the Freudian sense, that is the EXACT thing that barricades women in the conscious sense from being on the same level as men.
There is potential somewhere for this podcast, but I dunno..
