Hey Jedi Counsel friends! This week we are checking back in with three-peat guest-host, Dr. Keith Donohue! You might remember him from past episodes on myths around substance use as well as the fictional character James Bond. In this episode, we expanded our episode on Black Mirror: Bandersnatch by talking about “Choose Your Own Adventures” across multiple formats! Listen in as Dr. Donohue shares some of his background with this form of entertainment, the overall history of the genre, and how choosing your own adventure today can mean lots of things from playing Dungeons and Dragons, watching Bandersnatch, or catching up on classic Fighting Fantasy gamebooks!
Let us know about your background with choosing your own adventure, no matter what format you used!
