    #006: Jared Tendler - The Mental Game

    Jared Tendler is a highly accomplished sports psychologist that has worked with elite poker players, golfers, traders and now esports athletes. In this podcast I try my best to hit as many areas of his field as possible as it's truly a rare and special privilege to talk to someone so accomplished in this field. Check out jaredtendler.com/free where you can attain free copies in audiobook form of Jared's best selling books on the mental game of poker-- and believe me, these ideas apply to CS as well.  Enjoy

    #005: Karrigan - In Game Leader of Mousesports

    #005: Karrigan - In Game Leader of Mousesports

    Karrigan is one of the most prolific leaders of our time. What he's been able to achieve puts him in a class of his own entirely in CS:GO history. Building multiple teams to the levels of success, especially considering that they have been international, that he has achieved, is nothing short of remarkable. In this interview we talk about this journey, TSM, Faze and mousesports. I also try to gain some insight into how Karrigan prepares for teams and what it's like to lead at the very top level.

We talk sports performance once again, and we find out some of the things he's been getting up to, in particular, his involvement in a summit he helped to organise that is focused on research around esports performance.
