How to get past steps ,

Only place for reliable esports content

No other outlet, whether it’s video or blog, compares to the quality and insight that this group brings.

Paul “The Profit” Dawalibi, the main host, has some great takes that usually end up coming to fruition. Him and his elegant team have a great eye for bringing guests out to their podcasts. This creates perspective about the industry that you just won’t find anywhere else right now.

I am so happy that William “The Professor” Collis is back with his own episodes that give thought provoking insight on news that seems small or insignificant. He was my favorite part of the earlier days of the podcast.

I can’t wait to see what this group achieves in the future. They are onto something great.

Love the podcast

I have to listen to this weekly now. One issue I have, the sound will sometimes abruptly stop. For example on the 10 Dec episode around 14 mins in there’s no sound for awhile. Noticed this happens on Spotify too.
