These video podcasts serve to showcase our unique mission to the games industry and to those who still remain unclear as to the nature of video game studies. Our methodology is centered around creating video games in a lab setting, to demonstrate our research as a complement to traditional academic publishing. Our hope is for these video podcasts to provide a rarely seen transparency of the research process here at GAMBIT.

This is a monthly series with each episode divided into four parts and released on the last week of every month.
