  16. Dear Dr. Susan,

    Love the escapist podcast and you’re game reviews. Question is what do you think about educational games for kids or for higher learning. Is there a way for games to be educational for younger children and still be good games that their parents can enjoy with them. Alternatively how do you think a game designed for educational purposes for high school and college level students would have to play and act. Appreciate everything you do hope this gets asked and that I can watch it, at psychiatrist appointment at the moment getting things taken care of here. Tons of fan love jake.

  17. Dear Dr. Susan:

    What do you have to say about the rumor that The Escapist could be bought for a sufficient number of Corgis?

    Also, please tell us more about Cat Burp. With such a name, their adventures must be the stuff of legends.

  20. Dear Doctor Susan,

    What is the game you would like to see made most of all? As in, what would it be about, how would it play, what genres would inspire it, would it be a continuation of another series, and so forth.
