Bridging the gap between gamers and non-gamers: this is a topic that we’ve addressed many times on the show. This week we talk to author, host, and video game columnist, Genese Davis. Genese has written a novel, The Holder’s Dominion, aimed at describing game culture and the desire to game to non-gamers. Listen to hear Genese’s story about becoming a gamer as an adult, the process of writing a novel about gaming, and how to lark your life.
Until next time, game on!
