, an edition of the in-game talk show This Spartan Life
combined with the NPR program Studio 360
The weekly arts and culture program went behind the scenes of the Halo 2
based show to give non-gamers a sense of what gaming culture is like. From the Joystiq article: "On this weekend's episode of Studio 360, host Kurt Andersen suited up and interviewed Damian in the game for National Public Radio, and This Spartan Life has in turn published video of the segment on their site. What's pretty impressive to learn is that all of the hours of Halo 2 played online cumulatively add up to more then 10,000 years worth of Spartan living, all without any apparent evolution."
