Tonight on the G3 Podcast, we tackle a couple lighthearted topics, and something a bit more serious.  You know, usual G3 stuff.

We'll start out talking about the Wii Mini.  The Wii Mini was ALMOST announced under the cover of darkness by Nintendo, with a Big Box employee leaking the possibility to a Nintendo news site over the weekend, and Best Buy Canada then accidentally posting an image a couple hours before the official announcement.

G3 Host Matt was actually the one who made the official release announcement for Best Buy Canada, and after a couple days where his article made the rounds at a lot of major outlets, we'll sit down to talk about the days going into it, and what the Canadian exclusive (for now) Mini means for the Wii going forward.

We then look to chat about the #1reasonwhy hashtag on Twitter, and sexism in the gaming industry.  We've talked about our disdain over Booth Babes and their presence at shows in a previous G3 Podcast, but the hosts want to give their take on what they see, how they feel and what may be done over time.  We'll also take a look back at some of our favorite women in the gaming industry, and their personally (to the hosts) influential titles.

Finally, as G3 reaches the end of its first year, we've had a lot of ups and downs to talk about in the gaming industry, and even on our podcast.  We'll close tonight's show by discussing our plans for the G3 End of Year Awards, and how you can get involved.  We'll even have prizes in it for you just for casting your votes.

The G3 Podcast is ready to roll tonight at 8 PM Pacific / 11 PM Eastern Time.
