This is episode 5 of Boing Boing's newest podcast, Tell Me Something I Don't Know. It's an interview podcast featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the reality/business side of how they do what they do.

Jesse Schell is the CEO of Schell Games - a video game and transformational game design company, a Professor at Carnegie Mellon University's Entertainment Technology Center, and the author of The Art of Game Design. He is a prolific speaker, well-known for his 2010 DICE talk, "Beyond Facebook", which has had over 1 million views online. His resume also includes stints as a juggler, comedian, and Creative Director for Walt Disney Imagineering.
