As a final lead in to all new 2017 podcast episodes, we present another fantastic ICON 2016 panel, which directly links to next week's podcast - South Africa's 'go-to' parenting expert, Nikki Bush, and South Africa's 'go-to' tech advisor, Arthur Goldstuck, took to the stage to talk about how to be a tech-savvy parent in an ever changing world!
Was back in the dark times of 2016, we chatted to the 'go-to' guy of SA tech, Arthur Goldstuck, about his path to geekdom. During the chat, he mentioned he'd written a number of books about urban legends and we were keen to here more - so we organised him a panel at ICON 2016!
Join Les Allen and Vittorio Leonardi on stage with Arthur Goldstuck as we talk about South African urban legends!

With #rAge2016, South Africa's biggest LAN and computer gaming event, starting this Friday in Johannesburg, we thought it time to review the state of esports in South Africa.
SA's "Tech Girl", Sam Wright, has been named as one of the hosts for this year's Telkom DGL tournaments at #rAge2016. Back in June, 2016 Sam hosted a panel on the topic of esports in South Africa at ICON Comics & Games Convention. Joining Sam on stage were SA gaming legend and shoutcaster Barry "Anthrax" Louzada, gamer Stefan 'Nefan' Smit, and DeWet "RidditZ" Lombard from nAvTv.
We humbly present a recording of this panel as a primer for this weekend's gaming fun!
