Co-host Bajo says “Every three seconds we get an email from a spawnling; 95% of Aussies under 15 call themselves gamers, so we’re thrilled to be able to make a longer show especially for and with them. The 30-minute show will allow us to review more games, produce more stories about game culture and delve deeper intogaming’s rich history.”
