Released Sunday, 6th December 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, I chat with Joe Musumeci --  a game designer, educator, and escape room owner in Maine. After being really into games for most of his life, he finally decided to open up an escape room, Farmington Underground, in 2018. He designs and builds all of the props and components himself, learning as he goes along. When forced to temporarily close down in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Joe began designing new ways to play games, while focusing heavily on local culture and history.

Note: This episode was recorded in November 2020 in the middle of the COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") pandemic.
