In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Chief Performance Engineer at Statespace Gaming Company, Taylor Johnson. To get a guest on the podcast who works in esports performance is a first for the podcast and one I have been looking forward to getting out there for a few weeks since we recorded it. An incredibly interesting area that is just going to grow and grow and Taylor is at the forefront of that. I find this area fascinating and horrendously exciting for performance coaches all over the world as it could provide the next wave of jobs for a market that is in desperate need.

Hope you enjoy this episode with Taylor Johnson.
