Connections Podcasts Episodes on the Topic

Equity in Gaming
Connections welcomes Kelvin Peprah, MA, LMCH, advocate and therapist on cultural/racial identity issues with a passion in working with youth and students of color. We talk about how people of color are represented in video game characters, players, and streamers, and what kind of impacts this might have on young gamers. As well as the opportunities and potential that the gaming industry has to reduce discrimination and promote social justice and equity. Have you noticed a difference?

What’s Trending?
Julie and Tana discuss the current trends in gaming and gambling convergence, including loot boxes and other monetization strategies within video games. They discuss a 2021 report from GambleAware (linked below) which reviews evidence that links loot boxes to problem gambling and problem video gaming, and provides recommendations for future policy. They discuss what video game warning labels mean, and how that might change if loot boxes start being regulated as gambling. They also talk a lot about food.

Recovering from Video Gaming Addiction
We interview Jon, a successful graduate of the residential treatment program at reSTART Life, a center specializing in Behavioral Addictions and co-occurring conditions such as video gaming, compulsive tech use, gambling and more. He talks to us about how his video game play started at a young age, turned into gambling inside video games, progressed through his teens and ended after one of the worst years of his addiction, when he finally found treatment that addressed “the tech side of things.” Find out what he did to be successful not only with staying game-free for the past 3 years, but managing healthy tech and screen use throughout his daily routines. We hope that you will be inspired, as we were, and find hope.
