Play the Past Interview

Earlier this week, Play the Past's Trevor Owens interviewed Dan Norton about iCivics classic Argument Wars.

 

Play the Past is all about the intersection of games and cultural heritage, so unsurprisingly, the interview touches frequently on Argument Wars' take on historic court cases...but it also digs up a fair amount of interesting developer dirt along the way.

Justice O'Connor with George Stephanopoulos

The retired Supreme Court Justice talked about immigration, Elena Kagan, and most importantly (we think so, anyway!) improving civics education via new media.
