Radio show about gaming in China: propaganda, paranoia and gold-farming

Jesse Brown from CBC Radio's SearchEngine sez, "This week's Search Engine is a special episode that may be of particular interest to BoingBoing readers. It's entirely devoted to the political and cultural impact of video games in China.

We cover the gamut: anti-gaming laws, 'internet addiction' paranoia, propaganda games by the state, and the most thoughtful documentary about gold-farming I've yet heard."
