Episode details

Danny speaks with Clayton Kozan, a graduate student at Texas Tech University who analyzes how the Vietnam War is portrayed in video games. From 80s games that have you play the lone wolf; to Call of Duty: Black Ops, where the War is about Nazis (??) and Soviets; to When I Was Young, which focuses not only on combat but the social experience of being a soldier, Danny and Clayton discuss how and why games' portrayal of Vietnam changed over time.
