So Kirsty and Jason from NGP joined in with the chat and so did our very new contributor/member of the Squeam Team: Dyl Adler from Generation Next! The segment is called DylSTICK and it’s all about the “Joy of Video Games ” with his news, views and reviews.
Dylan Adler is the host and producer of the news and youth affairs program Generation Next, he’s also put his hand up on a number of occasions to host some of Joy’s popular music programs like Little Fish and The ShaPow Show.
