I’m happy to announce our next Geekchats, which i teased at the end of last week with one of my favorite game designers (and people!) Mr. Damon Stone. This week we will discuss Living Freely, and what freedom means with author and columist James Poulos. James wrote the acclaimed book, The Art of Being Free: How Alexis de Tocqueville Can Save Us From Ourselves. I’ve read about half of it now and it is one great read filled with both deep philosophy and pop culture. You can check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HW6UKUE/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1
The chat will be on youtube as always, and can be watched below:
Geekchats returns with its first installment for 2017! Last year we started this wonderful series with NYT Bestselling Author, Todd McCaffrey, as well as Amazon Bestselling Author, Michael J. Sullivan. I am super excited to talk about theme and gaming with Damon Stone. We’ve been on panels in person at a convention talking about just this topic, and it’ll be interesting to revisit and see how the importance of theme has changed since that time, especially with the current prominence of Legacy games. I hope to glean a little information on Netrunner’s forthcoming Terminal Directive expansion with that in mind.
You can watch the feed of Damon Stone and me below, which sill stream live on Wednesday, January 25th 2017 at 12:00 PM Pacific Standard Time.
Next week, we will have a social theorist who has written for Foreign Policy, The Federalist, Vice and the Week, James Poulos to talk about the meaning of freedom an discuss his new book, The Art Of Being Free: How Alexis de Tocqueville Can Save Us From Ourselves. Stay tuned for details!
