The Indoor Kids: What Makes You a Gamer? with Jordan Morris

Kumail and Emily welcome their favorite guest, Jordan Morris, to discuss those weird Nintendo commercials where a person (usually a female) is playing a DS and proclaims herself not a gamer, but an artist. What makes a person a gamer? Is it enough to say you are one? Why do we care so much? All this and more!
