A growing trend that is now more than just a game


When you think of gaming and esports, you probably don’t think of politics, but you probably should. The industry is booming, and North Carolina is at the center of it all. Imagine arenas full of people with million dollar purses for the champion.

But also imagine high school leagues competing like any other high school sport. Also, imagine kids learning marketing, coding, broadcasting, and all kinds of skills besides owning a controller.

The Legislature is pulling in public funds, and schools may soon play a bigger role as well. State Rep. Jason Sain and Lenovo’s Jeff Palumbo join Tim for an engaging discussion.
