Podcast on High School Quizbowl Women

Post by Beevor Feevor » Tue Jan 06, 2015 8:29 pm

I'm not sure where else I'm supposed to post this in this subforum (if the mods want to move or remove it, it's fine by me), but I had a podcast recently about women participating in Quizbowl that featured a panel of 5 very experienced girls in high school Quizbowl today. I thought it may be enlightening for people who might want to know what it's like, and if more experienced people want to weigh in as well, I'm hoping that this podcast can help get the discussion rolling again on a very important problem to address!

Thanks for doing this, Eric—it's full of all sorts of good info about quizbowl in general, not limited to women or high school.
