There are a couple of things I always wanted to do but never did.

One of them was to have the courage to play Starcraft, 1v1, on the ladder.

Another one was to have a TV show.

So I've combined the two into a show I call "Overcoming Ladder Anxiety", a show on Twitch.tv:

It's basically my journey through playing ladder for the first time ever, talking about my anxiety and dealing with how reality doesn't quite match up to your expectations. It's about how Starcraft can teach you lessons about life.

The show runs Monday to Friday at 2:00 pm Pacific. Please join in live, or watch the videos! Thanks!

5 days a week? Wow. I've long since given up on even trying to keep up with Day9, save the occasional Funday Monday. I did watch some of MLG the other week, although not live.

I'll check some of your VODs out, though. I suffer from 1v1 ladder anxiety as well -- I get major decision paralysis in the 1v1 ladder environment. I'm a lot more comfortable in team games where I can confer with my teammates.

Well, I did it for a week before I found the schedule to be too much. :). So I'm thinking two or three times a week now.

Also I'm retooling the show a bit because its not so much fun to watch me failing over and over in Bronze League for an hour. :( So the new show will be more of an analysis of common mistakes and how to fix them, and will be cast from replays so it can be shorter.
