Games Institute Podcast

Sid Heeg, Research Communications Writer, and Toben Racicot, English PhD candidate co-host the Official Games Institute (GI) podcast. Every episode we spotlight a researcher from the GI and interview them about how their research impacts the study and culture of games and interactive technologies. The unfortunate reality of academia is that a lot of the great research findings never reach public audiences. Or, when it does, several years have passed and it's already outdated. This problem has to do with how research is communicated. Scholarly research is shared with scholarly audiences who exist within the same scholarly bubble. Do you subscribe to scholarly journals? Attend scholarly conferences? Likely not. A podcast allows us to pop the bubble and bring you research discussions as they're happening. We invite researchers to sit down and talk about what they're up to. No word counts, no jargon, no registration or subscription fee. You get to hear about the GI researchers' successes - and failures - and learn about the person behind the scholarly curtain.
