About iGAMING FM
Hands up, who loves radio??
Podcasts - there are lots of gaming ones about, and some of them are really good. So we thought we’d do something a little different. And a radio talk show for the igaming sector is something we've been brewing up for a while. Big topics, with a lighter touch - that kind of thing. Here’s an inspirational quote:
"You’re the host, you tell me,” - Robin Hutchison
