This podcast with the outstanding movie critic, Sonny Bunch, talks about a few interesting issues:
- The economics of entertainment is now dominated by video games. Not only games where players pay a significant up-front fee to purchase the game, but the proliferation of various “free-to-play” games, especially on mobile devices.
- The cultural risk of authoritarian nations spreading cultural ideas through video games (and other forms of media). Their manipulation through both ownership and management of such entertainment creates a variety of risks in our community.
Well worth listening!
