It’s hard, sometimes, to separate reality from fantasy, especially in wartime.

On this edition, we look at video games, movies, and war, and how the lines between each aren’t always so clear.

Featuring:

Mike Zyda, professor, University of Southern California’s GamePipe Laboratory; Lieutenant Colonel George Juntiff (Ret.), Breakaway Games; Jeff Paterson, Not in Our Name; audio clips from Invasion USA, On The Beach, Dr. Strangelove, Failsafe, The Day After, Threads, War Games, Terminator, Rise of the Machines and more.

This week’s host: Justin Beck. Contributing producer: Eric Klein.
