This episode sees our latest attempt in Understanding Esports. The Super-Special Guest showing incredible patience as we ask obvious questions was Deborah Mensah-Bonsu from Space Ape Games. We find out when the first ever esport happened and how Twitter changed the world of esports. In addition we try to see if you can deliberately design a game to be an esport. Ann then uses this information to make her own esport.
Space Ape have made lots of games that can be classed as esports so Deborah was a good guest to have. But in order for their new game to become an esport we need one of the team to be a watcher. Which one will it be?
Ste was back from Finland so as punishment we put him a cupboard with a dodgy microphone for the first half, Simon works out a new way to monetise the show by entering a competition and Ann tries to remember if she's played The Witcher before.
