Our special guest for this episode is Keza MacDonald! We discuss her experience of being a step-mum, and why she changed her mind about having her own kids. There's some chat about dealing with the teenage years, and we find out Keza's number one piece of advice for new step-parents. 

Then it's time for video games chat! Keza is the games editor for The Guardian, so we pick her brains about screentime, age ratings, and what to do if your child decides they want to become a pro gamer. We also talk about YouTube, our favourite games for playing with kids, and how Eurovision destroys families. 

This episode was sponsored by Must Play May, an initiative designed to celebrate the positive things about gaming and how it can bring people together. For more, please visit askaboutgames.com
