Ben Bertoli – Journalism/Bookwriting

In this episode, we talk with Ben Bertoli, an accomplished journalist and author who has written for Kotaku, Polygon, IGN, Mashable, and more and wrote “101 Video Games to Play Before You Grow Up”, a guide and achievement activity listing of some of the best games for kids to play. We chat with Ben about his path into being a freelance journalist for games, how he integrates gaming into his day job as a teacher and mentor, as well as his struggles and triumphs writing about games in general. We also dive into Ben’s love of Nintendo growing up, his affection for the print journalism of games of bygone days, and his aspirations for future books.
