This week we invited Mitchell Whitaker, Director of Harvey Norman New Castle, back on the show and shared some last minute gift ideas for Mum. Mitch went through the following items and why they are popular for Mum’s this year:
4) Cricut makers from $294
3) Galaxy Buds and Airpods, wireless ear buds generally
2) Fitbits and Smart Watches
1) 5g Smart Phones

We also re invited Ron Curry, CEO of Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA). Ron shared the latest update on tax support that the game industry is getting. What this update means for the industry, what video games can our older listeners play and how to start playing!

“This is a very welcomed day for Australian-made video games. We congratulate the Prime Minister, Minister Hume, and the Minister for the Arts the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, for recognising not only that video games have an important place alongside TV and film in Australian screen production and storytelling, but also their unparalleled potential for supercharging Australia’s exports, attracting vast inward investment, and up-skilling a whole new generation of Australian digital workers”,
