Pokemon Go Catches Fire in Iowa

Jul 19, 2016

Pokemon Go, a new game and cell phone app, was released earlier this month and has quickly become one of the most played games across the United States. If you're not playing it, someone you know is.

During this hour of River to River, host Ben Kieffer plays the game with Iowa Public Radio intern Graham Bly, then talks with Matthew Mitchell, assistant professor of international business and strategy at Drake University and Juan Pablo Hourcade, associate professor of computer science at the University of Iowa about the app, what information it's collecting from your cell phone and how it's changing the way we game.
