Well, it isn’t exactly CNN, but CNN did let it hit their homepage in the Living section, so I guess that makes it as mainstream as we get these days. Geek Out, a blog hosted at CNN, has an interview with Enrique Bertran of NewbieDM.com and rpgKids.com. The interview covers how Enrique got into designing an RPG games for kids, what kind of games he enjoys playing, and touches on his feelings of sharing your gaming hobby with your children.
A fun read, maybe a little short, but leads to some great sites for younger roleplay gamers.
