Episode Info:

Isaac Shalev and Greg Loring-Albright join me to talk about the Magic Circle, a concept originally mentioned by Huizinga in Homo Ludens and defined by Eric Zimmerman and Katie Salen. We try to break down what the concept means both academically and in practice. There are a lot of great resources in the show notes (blog post). Go to whowhatwhycast.tumblr.com.
