Press Start for “Is It WRONG If You Don’t Vote?” by 8-Bit Philosophy, where classic video games introduce famous thinkers, problems, concepts, and more. In this episode, we reflect on the question of VOTING – specifically how present-day election cycles may ask us to forgo many of our core values in order to support the lesser of two evils.
