Hello listeners and welcome to yet another episode of the tech for good live podcast. This time we are talking about esports, new charity related domains, and we’ll be answering the question, “is web3 dying?” because it’s a 45 minute show and we can definitely wrap that up in a 10 minute segment.

Host Bex is joined by TFGL regular Greg Ashton.

Our special guest for this episode is Craig Steele from Digital Skills Education

If you know a young gamer inspired by esports - they can get Craigs book “Ultimate Gamer: Career Mode - Everything You Need To Be A Gaming Industry Pro” and learn about all the creative and technical jobs in the gaming industry. It’s available wherever books are sold, and in libraries across the country.
