#101: QAnon; The Game That Plays People

#101: QAnon; The Game That Plays People

In today’s episode, Greg and Brian are joined by game designer Reed Berkowitz. Reed has an extensive and impressive background in educational, gaming, and entertainment products and has worked with everyone from Universal Studios to Broadway playwrights, helping them to explore interactive media and create new stories in new forms.

Brian recently reached out to Reed and asked him to come on the show after he read an incredibly detailed article Reed had written called: “ A Game Designers Analysis of QAnon.” 

In his article, Reed conducted a thorough analysis of the methods that are used by the creators of the QAnon conspiracy and he explains all of it through the lenses of game design, human behavior, and the psychology of fiction. 

Although we had an awesome conversation about the topic, there wasn’t enough time to go through everything that Reed researched so we included a link to the article in the episode details. We highly suggest that you not only READ the article but that you share it with someone who needs to hear the message!
