Thorin (aka Duncan Shields) is an Esports historian who has been deeply involved in the Esports scene professionally since 2001, as well as a journalist and writer, winning Esports Journalist of the Year at the 2017 industry awards. Thorin joins Carol Roth to talk about the history and business of Esports, including what actually counts as an “Esport”, what the big industry challenge is, whether there is an investment bubble, if Esports will ever take the place of other sports and even advice on what to do to become a professional gamer.
Plus, a “Now You Know” segment on the history of Esports in South Korea and a bonus segment on the odd way Carol discovered the gamer “Ninja”.
Thorin is also known for appearing as an expert analyst on Counter-Strike broadcasts and hosting talk shows in games CS:GO and League of Legends.
