I’m quoted in an All Things Considered story by journalist Heather Chaplin that ran today. The piece is about the game Medal of Honor, and the controversy about whether or not the player can play the role of a Taliban in the game.
My strangely echoing voice comes in the second half of the story, as I talk about the relationship between play and and its representations, quoting Brian Sutton Smith’s paraphrasing of Robert Fagan’s ideas about the difference between a nip and a bite when dogs play-fight.
If those ideas get your goat, you can read more about them in the Play of Meaning and Play of Simulation chapters of Rules of Play.
Enjoy the radio piece!
