Episode 4: Models

Hailey and Jase get their minds around the concept of a model. We mostly discuss mental models: how they are formed, how they are shared, and how they are improved. We also discuss how mental models are similar and different to computer models and other external models, as well as the limitations of working with models. Finally, we explore how games function as models, and as a training environment for our model-making capability. Get references and transcript at https://amble.studio/episode-4-models
