Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel

8/30/2019
Save the best for last they say. In terms of “best” they don’t come any better than Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. Fatal1ty is a multiple world champion across multiple games spamming Quake 3 to Painkiller. The first professional gamer to truly tap into the esports fan base. He’s had endorsements from shoes to graphics cards. He’s played on the great wall of China, appeared on 60 Minutes, earned his own cover of Time magazine. He accomplished all of this while being a ferocious competitor,...

Ralf Reichert

8/23/2019
When it comes to the earliest esports teams that are still around today, none have survived at the top longer than SK Gaming. Formed in 1997 by a set of gaming passionate brothers in Germany, one of which would also form, run, grow and head up ESL, one of the biggest esports tournament organizers in the world, responsible for ESL Pro League, ESL One and Intel Extreme Masters among many others. Ralf Reichert is not only one of the founders of SK and ESL but of esports itself, overseeing some...

Ryan "The Prodigal Son" Hart

8/16/2019
The prodigal son returns. Likely the most apt description of Ryan Hart, fighting game legend, more recently esports broadcaster and always one of the truly great people in and around esports. He’s made more comebacks than any other player in history, set official world records, won hundreds (yes, hundreds) of tournaments and yet somehow, because we are terrible at recording and remembering history in esports, has almost been forgotten. Like Alex Valle, Ryan started out early in the nineties...

Jonas "bsl" Alsaker Vikan

8/9/2019
When fans talk about the evolution of counter strike and the move to multi nationality teams, they think of it as a recent phenomenon. But that isn’t the case. Episode Seven features a man who formed his own teams, but then moved to Brazil to play the game. After getting the bug early, his competitive streak had taken over. It was a goal to join or build a team that could not only compete, but win. Yet this wasn’t fueled by some dollar induced haze, no, this was to win and win alone. Fame...

Michael "ODEE" O'Dell

8/2/2019
The timing of this podcast could not have been better (or worse depending your view point)considering one of the longest serving team owners in esports recently split from his beloved team. Team Dignitas were one of the early esports multi gaming organizations, founded through a mixture of fun and passion for Battlefield 1942 by Michael O’Dell. Michaels career and indeed his early years of video games follow a similar pattern to some of our other guests this season, including having to stop...

Michal "Carmac" Bilcharz

7/26/2019
Have you ever sat in front of the TV and thought “I could do a much better job than these guys!”? Well our guest went one further and wrote a whole column on why the Intel Extreme Masters could be so much better. Rather than fight him over it, ESL hired him. Michal “Carmac” Blicharz is one of the defining characters in esports that sits behind the scenes, works his magic and comes up with stadiums full of fans cheering on their favorite teams and players. Instead of sitting back and taking...

Eefje "Sjokz" Depoortere

7/19/2019
If there is one name and one face people would associate with European League of Legends on a broadcast it is likely Sjokz. Better known in her Belgian homeland as Eefje Depoortere, she has spent the better part of the last seven years as the host of the official RIOT owned and run League of Legends championship (now known as the LEC). But Eefje's journey to an award winning host didn't start with League of Legends, instead as a highly accomplished player in Unreal Tournament many years...

Jason "1" Lake

7/12/2019
Our third episode covers the area of team ownership and team management. Jason “1” Lake is the current CEO of Complexity Gaming, owned and run by the Dallas Cowboys group of sports teams. They have a state of the art training facility and HQ based in Dallas and are one of the biggest organizations in esports today. But it wasn’t always that way for Jason Lake. He’s had huge ups and huge downs throughout his prolific 17 years in esports. From the Playboy Mansion to “dark places” only he knows...

Alex "Mr. Street Fighter" Valle

7/6/2019
Episode Two turns its attention to a scene which has often clashed with esports, indeed, sometimes even asking the question of whether the Fighting Game Community (FGC) is even part of esports. Alex Valle is the perfect person to answer this question. The community dubbed him “Mr. Street Fighter” and when you hear his story, which began in 1992, you’ll be left with no doubt as to why. Not just one of the early esports stars, Alex has also contributed in many other ways and his passion has...

Marcus "djWHEAT" Graham

6/28/2019
For our first episode we wanted to make sure our guest was someone special with a real pedigree in esports… A man we like to call “The King of Casters” the original OG of esports commentary, Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham. In this episode you’ll hear how Marcus was a bit of a naughty kid who turned out to be rather good at talking about esports. You’ll hear about his incredible sacrifices along the way and how the early boom or bust years of esports nearly stopped him from succeeding in the...
