The Fifth Estate documentary airs

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Remember my post about being interviewed for a documentary for the Fifth Estate? Well the documentary is on tonight at 9:00 p.m. EST on CBC. It airs again on Friday at 10:00 p.m. EST. It’s called Strangers in Paradise and focuses on two couples who’ve had their marriage seriously tested because of Second Life (an MMORPG).

Find out more about the episode here:

I wonder how my segment(s) will turn out?  I’ll try and get a clip of the pieces and post them here.  I’m sure the documentary will open many eyes. Definitely a must watch tonight!! And if you can’t watch tonight be sure to TiVo/PVR it or watch on Friday.

I’ll post my thoughts on the documentary after I watch it and I’m interested in hearing feedback from you guys too so come back and post your comments. :D

 

EDIT: I watched the documentary — it was really great!! My interview ended up being an online feature and you can watch it here: http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/2008-2009/strangers_in_paradise/gamer_widow.html

Interview on BBC Southern Counties Radio

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

I just had a great interview on BBC Southern Counties Radio. Jess Love the producer of the show contacted me last week to ask if I was available for an interview today. 

Luckily I was, and we just finished the interview. It was live and I wasn’t able to record it but Jess is providing me with a copy and I will post it as soon as I recieve it.

It always feels good to be able to let people know that yes this is a real problem and being married to a gaming addict really does make you feel like a widow.

Sherry is interviewed on Drivetime with Roberto Perrone (UK)

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

I am about to be interviewed for the Drivetime with Roberto Perrone show based in the UK.  I’m honestly not sure if the show is pre-taped (I’m listening live now and I don’t think it is) or not but we’ll see.  The producer is going to make a copy of the interview available to me after the show and I will post here as soon as I get it.

I’m to be a voice of sympathy today to all women because today is the day that ‘World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King’ launches.

I’ll keep you posted!  =)

Sherry is interviewed LIVE on Ireland’s Tom Dunne Newstalk Radio show

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

It’s 4:36am EST and I have just finished a live interview! I was just on the Tom Dunne morning show (it’s about 9:36am for them over there) talking about the site and telling a bit of my own Gamer Widow story. It was a lot of fun and also a bit nerve wracking. It’s funny, I have done countless interviews but the live ones still get the butterflies flying in my tummy.

Tom was very friendly and really put me at ease. I am waiting to see if they can get me a copy that I can post here. As soon as they do I will post it in our Media section.

I had really short notice or I would have announced my being on the show earlier so that someone might have been able to record it. Oh well…next time Gadget, next time!

Back to sleep for me!
