Stewart Darkin joined Square in the Air in April 2021, and their podcast iGaming FM was launched in August 2021.
Quoting Square in the Air: “Podcasts – there are lots of gaming ones about, and some of them are really good. So we thought we’d do something a little different. And a radio talk show for the iGaming sector is something we’ve been brewing up for a while. Big topics, with a lighter touch – that kind of thing”.
Personality goes a long way: Catie Di Stefano
In episode 19 of iGaming FM, Catie Di Stefano talks to Stewart Darkin about the first time they met in New York. He is curious about how far she has come in one year.
In the summer of 2021, Catie started posting videos on LinkedIn to get a new job, and she quickly landed OnlineGamblers.com. In the year that has gone, she has learned videography, affiliation, and social media – all brand new to her.
Catie talks about feeling shame and taking on the challenge of adapting to the new digital working environment.
Stewart asks Catie if it’s possible to get jobs based solely on social media presence. And what advice does Catie have to get started with personal branding?
Catie is also honored to share this episode with insightful interviews by Lloyd Danzig and Paul Shackleton.
The Calm Before the Storm: Havard Lehn
In episode 20 of iGaming FM, Havard Lehn talks to Sam Gascoyne about how he got into gambling affiliation. In 2017, Havard helped to build an affiliate business that was sold to Gaming Innovation Group for €27 million. OnlineGamblers.com is Havard’s newest project focusing on safe and educational gambling in the US.
Sam asks Havard about the difference between building a successful affiliation in 2017 vs. 2022. The conversation touches upon challenges like licensing and being late to the market, plus upsides like sustainability and building communities. Havard also shares his insight on the differences between the European and North American markets.
