In episode 71 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast we speak to Kathy Loizou, Co-founder and Director of The Children's Media Conference, and we're also joined by Alex Amsel, award-winning game developer and blockchain expert.
In the first part of the episode, Kathy fills us in on the history of The Children’s Media Conference, how it’s adapted during Covid-times and why digital folk should attend this year’s event (tip: there’s a discount for Sheffield Digital members too). Kathy also tells us about Playground at Site Gallery in Sheffield, which is taking place from 1 to 11 July in 2021.
In the second part of the episode, we speak to Alex about NFTs - what they are, why there's been a recent boom, his views on sustainability issues, and how to learn more about bitcoin. Chris also asks him what the heck happened with Cryptopunk NFTs.
