NPR level discourse about gaming.

Does the idea of an NPR style interview/roundtable discussion podcast about video games with some of the most interesting luminaries in the industry appeal to you? If so, this is the podcast you are looking for. Michael Abbott is an articulate and engaging host who invites a range of video games critics, writers, and designers who are redefining the medium to chat about their work or just have an open dialogue about where they think games are going. This is a focused hour of insightful talk, a must listen for anyone wanting to engage the videogames medium on a more intellectual level.

Life-Affirmingly Great

Michael Abbott's Brainy Gamer Podcast is by far the most informative and intellectually exciting podcast about video games out there. Michael is sincere in his love of games, thoughtful in his consideration of games as a form of cultural production, and he has extremely great taste in friends/guests. This podcast (and the Brainy Gamer website) changed the way I think about and play games.
