On this edition of Inside The Screen, presented by host Aaron aka ‘Don’ Dukes, Don welcomes special guest KCP Kate, a young phenom playing for the Kansas City Pioneers, who has been dominating Rocket League. While the 21-year-old is still a relatively new face in the esports and gaming scene, she is making quite a splash with not only her skillset but for her competitive and fiery spirit. Kate is truly a beast behind the controller, and she and Don talked about this next step in her career, being a young woman navigating the esports and gaming scene, and more.
After a quick conversation about Kate’s parents and her support system, Don then gets Kate’s thoughts on being a woman in esports and how things have changed for the better. “I think that every single woman will have a different experience with it, but at least for me—when I was in the speedrunning community—everybody was so nice to me, and I never really experienced a lot of the things that I saw, but then when I came to Rocket League and played Overwatch at the same time, that obviously got pretty toxic. I think the same way it’s been really harsh to get used to; it has also made me a better person.”
We definitely don’t want to spoil this amazing conversation between Don and KCP Kate, so be sure to check out the full interview in the video above. You can continue to follow both Don and Kate on Instagram and Twitter.
