About this Episode

There's been a shift in the balance of power in esports. Now creators hold a ton of leverage as esports organizations become hubs of digital influencers. AFK Creator's Matt Woods joins the show to talk about how his agency is empowering creators, the ongoing shift in esports and the power of the gaming influencer. On a personal note, this is my second-to-last episode of the Esports Network Podcast as I move on to a new role in April. Thank you to all of our listeners for tuning in over the last two years.
