An interview with Wired!

So Jonathan Liu over on GeekDad was intrigued enough about this documentary thing want to find out more. And boy, did HE get an earful! :)

Lorien Green: Geeky Mom And Documentary Filmmaker is “Going Cardboard”
Lorien Green is a GeekMom: she’s got two young kids and her geek credentials include meeting her husband through Magic: the Gathering and her love of “geekumentaries” like “King of Kong.” Plus, she’s a sucker for zombies. She decided to combine her love of board games with her love of documentaries and is currently making “Going Cardboard,” a “geekumentary” about board games and the people who love them.

I did an e-mail interview with Lorien about “Going Cardboard,” board games, and her desire to be a Cylon. I also have the audio of a follow-up phone interview, where we talk more about board games, zombies, and juggling a full-time job, parenting, and shooting a documentary. Listen to it here.

You know, I never really thought of myself as a GeekMom, but when HE says it, it sounds kinda cool! I mean, I guess a Mom who makes her kids sing Frodo of the Nine Fingers as T-Pain...or doesn't really have to MAKE them...which is even more incriminating...


  1. This is awesome news! Glad to hear everything is going great. Can't wait to see the final product.

  2. I too cannot wait to see the final product! Will you be at BGG.con interviewing (or just gaming)? I sent an email to that effect (with more specific questions and info) to - I wonder who that will end up going to...

    - Seth

  3. Of course you're a GeekMom. Duh. You're a huge geek who's a mom. As I'm a GeekDad, but for some reason no one's terribly interested in GeekDads... not sure why...

  4. Heya Seth. That email goes to me! :) I don't know if I'll be able to hit BGG.con, but if I can, I absolutely will.
