Episode 30 – Everything’s Better Embed

Concluding this year’s series of interviews of the authors and editors of video game criticism publications we turn our eyes to gonzo. Cara Ellison‘s Embed With Games: A Year on the Couch with Game Developers brings the long form, lifestyle gonzo journalism to video games as she chronicles her year long journey around the world to see various small and independent game artists in their element. Come and listen to us discuss the influence of an artist’s location, the Hawthorne effect, the process of choosing who to cover in the first place and much more.

We hope you enjoyed our year of interviews looking into the books and periodicals of video game criticism and also hope that they managed to add something to the conversation. Next year, we’re moving on to criticism in a different form.
