Studio 360 talks with famed game designer Brenda Brathwaite about Monopoly, old and new. Together, they invite listeners to submit ideas by May 1 on how to make the game into something playable. Brenda will take the best ideas and make a new unofficial game out of them, and Studio 360 will revisit the topic in a few weeks.

Another podcast, This American Life, uses card games as a metaphor this week for knowing when to give up.
