In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, the second of a three part conversation in our cultural series, we are joined again by Wes Rist, Deputy Executive Director of the American Society of International Law and Joe Gibson, Program Officer for International Humanitarian Law at the American Red Cross. This time, we discuss how the influence of video games. Nearly 2/3rds of American households have video game consoles, meaning audiences are being exposed to games in much greater concentration and in increasingly different ways. How does that translate to shaping public perceptions? We also chat about how video games are being utilized in humanitarian partnerships, military trainings and more. You can check out our first conversation here. Next week, we’ll be joined by Christian Rouffaer, the head of the ICRC's Virtual Reality unit based in Bangkok to discuss how ICRC is harnessing the power of video games to reach audiences in new and creative ways. Hosted by Niki Clark.
