VICE News Correspondent Dexter Thomas Jr. digs back in military gaming history to explain how we got here.

Dexter calls esports video game players ‘Athletes’ how ignorant can someone be

Extremely uninformed hosts.

The hosts of this podcast will happily discuss a subject they know nothing about, making strange assumptions and moral judgements based on nothing but their own internal logic, that has no basis in reality.

If they don’t know about a game, they just make stuff up about it to get mad about. If you care about the topics they discuss, prepare to get very mad as you listen to them make stuff up off the top of their heads.
