Super excited to have the man Wheels.2k on the podcast to talk about The Rise of Esports Video Content. He is a Video Editor for Splyce and Host of Behind The Cut Podcast. We talk about what should you do if you create something that sucks, do you really love what you put out, the current state of esports content and how to supplement video with other forms of content. He ends the show with giving some advice to new content creators particularly around the very controversial idea of working for free.
