In September 2014, I made a true effort to live the contemporary video game nerd dream: I wanted to be a full-time Twitch streamer. What started as a casual past-time and fun hobby turned into an actual job, with all of the trappings the word 'job' entails.
60,000+ total views, 20,000+ Twitch user accounts watched, 9,782 followers, and a Hobo Network of 13 other Twitch streamers, I decided to hang up the boots and call it quits. Why stop such a good thing? Why retire when things were finally taking off?
I sit with two partners and fellow Twitch streamers, and we talk the inner-workings, trials, and tribulations of being a full-time Twitch streamer and creating a brand, making money playing videogames. Join myself, Marco Flores (Nerd In The Bay, both on YouTube and Twitch), and part-time streamer and member of my "Hobo Network", Chris Troxtell (VampiricWarrior on Twitch) in this two-hour, one-time podcast discussing the highs, lows, and in-betweens of a life on Twitch.
