Morgan Webb, who, according to Wikipedia, "is an American former co-host and senior segment producer of the now canceled G4 show X-Play. She was previously the host of the podcast WebbAlert and a monthly columnist for the United States edition of FHM, where she contributed a monthly video game column titled 'Tips from the Gaming Goddess,'" has an undergraduate degree in rhetoric. In an interview with U. Magazine, she had this to say about it:

"I got hired at Tech TV because of my technical background to do research. My degree did come in handy. As a Rhetoric Major, you look at history and philosophy and you're basically constructing and deconstructing people's arguments. You get a fair bit of English, history and philosophy, but you're focusing on how to construct an argument. A lot of people do it for Pre-Law, but I liked it because it had elements of an English degree, but was slightly more analytical. It turns out there is a lot of money in writing about computers and explaining how they work." --From WPA-L
