You put your headphones on your head and turn on your favorite podcast app. When you hit play, the mellifluous voices of nerds fills your ears. "Choice" is the topic at hand: who will you listen to first? Will it be Dave, the spookiest host? He questions the value of choice when the rewards are always the same. Maybe you'll go with Greg, the drunkest host? Listen to him explore the pressures of how we choose to spend our time playing games. Or there's Giovanni, the longest host. He interrogates the moral lessons of choice in certain games. Lastly, you might go with Colin, the leftist host. He talks about monsters for some reason. To listen to this podcast, jump ahead to second fifteen. There, your adventure begins!
If you're still convinced you have free will, why not exercise it by stopping by Apple Podcasts and giving us a review? You can watch us grapple with existential doubt on Facebook and Twitter. And, while you're at it, why no subscribe to our YouTube Channel, where we speak dark utterances into the infinite void. For fun!
