Episode 20: Shazia Mirza

Picture 5Comedian and columnist Shazia Mirza drops in for a chat this week and we have a great time hearing about her former life as science teacher, her experience of playing the Edinburgh Festival, and what her parents think about what she does...

Dave's similarly-voiced brother Simon joins us too, fresh from the Games Developer's Conference in San Francisco and reviews 2012 from a fluid renderer's point of view, while Dave finds out what the Easter Bunny has... brought? Laid?

Don't miss what's arguably the highlight of this episode: your hosts' attempts to explain Star Wars and Star Trek to each other from fragments of pieced-together memories and folklore.
