Worth Repeating

NPR’s ‘On the Media’ Covers Gaming

The latest episode of WNYC/NPR’s On the Media radio show concerns the cultural and technological influence of digital games.  The show features input from New York Times Magazine technology writer Clive Thompson, games historian Steven Kent, and Kill Screen’s Jamin Brophy-Warren, among others.  Like CBC.ca’s “Pushing Buttons” feature last fall, it is very nice to see digital games addressed in the mainstream press with thoughtful attention.  Archived audio, in .mp3 form, as well as episode transcripts are available now.
