Conversations with ESSA
RED LIGHT! GREEN LIGHT! Gaining media traction for his publication on Squid Game, Wayne Geerling returns to the ESSA podcast once more to talk game theory and the new frontier of teaching.
Squid Game sheds light on how people act — not always rationally. The series is about 456 contestants, who are in financial debt, competing in a series of deadly games to win a large sum of money.
Wayne briefly speaks about his teaching and more specifically his adoption of pop culture to teach economics and the progress that has been made in this area of teaching. Wayne also talks us through some scenes in squid game where game theory is present. He discusses scenes including red light green light, the marbles game and more and how game theory is (and is not) followed throughout the series! (refer to: https://www.economicsofsquidgame.com)
