Scott Shackford on Public Radio International at 11 a.m. (Pacific) Talking About Video Games


No, I'm not tired of talking about it.

I'll be joining a small radio panel today to discuss video games and their influence on politics and economics on To the Point, a news program on Public Radio International produced by KCRW in Santa Monica, California. The discussion is scheduled for a little bit past 11 a.m. Pacific time (that would be 2 p.m. Eastern).

Some issues that may come up may be inspired from some of our recent coverage in "Video Game Nation," including the story of how Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) rallied gamers to try to fight some bad anti-piracy legislation, what we learned about the politics of gamers in our recent polls, what economists can learn from video games, and whether politicians should be handing out tax credits or subsides to game companies.

The website for To the Point is here. Tune in to hear us talk about how central video games have become to American culture.
