I’ve reached an agreement with Matrix Media, a national talk radio syndication firm. Matrix is the company that launched Animal Planet Radio, Travel Channel Radio and the HGTV Design Minutes. I’ll be working with Matrix to produce a weekly radio show titled “Video Games: Brain Gain or Drain? You can hear the show at http://webtalkradio.net/shows/video-games-brain-gain-or-drain/ . It’s available 24/7.
As you may or may not know, my research and writing history has been primarily about dreams and consciousness. It is only in the last decade that I have turned my attention to video games. In the process of doing my research on the effects of gaming on various states of consciousness, as a player, mother and psychologist, I’ve learned about video game play. I co-teach an introductory course here at MacEwan on video games, and am editing and cowriting two books on video games, in addition to my ongoing research program. Thus, when I was approached by Matrix Media, it occurred to me that my unique blend of expertise might make for an interesting radio talk show.
If there are any topics, issues or events that you’d like to see me cover on the radio show, just drop me a line and I’ll see if I can work them into the editorial calendar. On that same note, if you have a guest that you’d like to recommend for an interview, in keeping with the content, of course, I’ll be happy to consider it. Here I would broaden this call for suggestions to “Technology and Consciousness”.
Finally, if you have a business, a book or a service that could benefit from aligning with my content through sponsorship, I’d like to put you in touch with Mary Lou Davidson from Matrix. Mary Lou will want to learn more about your business and your marketing objective to see if there is a fit – and how we can help you. Let me know, or contact Mary Lou directly at MaryLou@matrixmediainc.com – 941-379-1440.
