Episode 221: Language in Games II

Hosts: Jenn, Kathryn, Todd

A few years ago, Todd, Evan, and Rob talked about language in games. You can listen to that cast here:

We decided to return to the topic because Kathryn Hymes has been working on some really cool language-based games and we wanted to get her thoughts on the intersection of language and gaming.
