Episode 553: 02-26-20

Jim chats with John Kracum, the Vice President of Misfits Gaming all about the business of eSports and how their teams compete for global notoriety in video games like Fortnite, Counterstrike, Call of Duty and many others. John shares how Misfits Gaming got their start and their primary demographics of both players and viewers. They talk about about Misfits’ strategy for gaining viewers, how to stream events, and what on earth is MSFIO.

With more to discuss but no time to do it, Jim invites John back to hear all about how players are recruited and trained, all about competitions and so much more. Stay tuned!

Jim also welcomes back resident CBD & cannabis expert Manny Johnson of Organicann to learn more about marijuana safety. With a surge in popularity but no double blind studies to prove safety and effectiveness of most products, the marijuana industry is dangerously unregulated. Manny continues to give insight into the industry to help product users be informed and aware of what they are ingesting and what claims should be believed (or not). In this episode, Manny also shares some interesting anecdotes of marijuana and hemp in our country’s history and gives some good news about future studies to be conducted around product safety.
