First Wall Rebate Ep. 007: Special Agent Nick Montfort

Shane and I are joined on this latest episode of First Wall Rebate by Nick Montfort for a discussion about interactive fiction and digital narratives. We get his takes on the role of interactive fiction, resistance to the form by members of the gaming and literary communities, and the supercool Apple IIc he keeps in his office.

Montfort is an assistant professor of digital media in the Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and is the author/programmer of Book and Volume, around which we anchor our conversation. Be sure to visit his website at, and look for his upcoming book with Ian Bogost on the Atari VCS called Racing the Beam. Thanks for listening.
