The Moving Pixels Podcast Catches 'Em All

by G. Christopher Williams

22 August 2016

This week we discuss the global phenomenon Pokemon Go.
 

While the mania has begun to ebb in the remaining days of summer, Pokemon Go was the biggest gaming event of the last two months, both a cultural and cross cultural phenomenon.

While our own experiences of the game are localized, this week we discuss our own experiences with Pokemon Go and how they may reflect on the larger phenomenon surrounding its release.

Additionally, we are also available on iTunes.
