    There aren’t enough superlatives to describe how amazing this podcast is. To hear the guests describe some of their favourite games whilst it is intertwined it with their career journeys and some life changing events make this a must listen. Simon is the perfect host, not afraid to ask the hard / personal questions but always in an empathetic manner. Can’t wait for the next episode!
