Scholars At Play is dedicated to the critical discussion of games and their place in society and the academy.

Scholars At Play was conceptualized by Derek Price in the Fall of 2016 and realized as a podcast with the addition of Kyle Romero and Terrell Taylor as regular co-hosts. The three have collaborated on podcasts, public events, and writing since then, along with the help of a diverse group of guests and contributors, including Curtis Maughan, Pablo Abend, Max Baumkel, Sabeen Ahmed, and Henry Gorman.
