Chauncey Devega put this on my radar literally months ago (October, according to the post date), but I’ve been powerfully busy in the time in-between. I’ve actually had it open in a tab since then, which is a minor internet miracle.
In any case, it is an interview with Corey Mead about his recent War Play, a book on the military industrial complex and its material and symbolic effects on the creation and development of the videogame industry. Devega does a great job of pushing Mead, an academic writing a book for a general audience, to explore and contextualize his ideas in the context of the latter part of last year, and I found the whole thing to be really engaging.
Listen to the interview here. It is right at an hour long.
