Humaning Ep12: The Scientist In Society – With Isabela Granic, PhD, and Lorenzo Evans
Dutch documentary series, Doc Talks. The interviewer was a dream to work with — engaged and intelligent and he genuinely seemed interested in the work we do. If you want a quick primer on the potential benefits of playing video games and our vision for developing games to improve children’s emotional health and well-being, this is the fastest way to get it (the interview is in English, only the intro is in Dutch… lucky for me)! My one regret is that in the flurry of some unexpected questions and my preoccupation with focusing on the content of those questions, I failed to mention the game development company we worked with on MindLight — GainPlay.
