Tech Feed Interview: League of Legends Players Get Athlete Visas

A couple days ago I did a Skype interview with Anne from Tech Feed about the recent news that Riot had secured P-1 athlete visas for League of Legends players from the US State Department. This is huge news, since it marks the first time that the US government explicitly endorsed competitive video gaming.

In this interview, Anne asks me to talk a bit about the legalities of P-1 visas, other countries that recognize competitive video gaming before, and the difficulty of becoming a pro gamer before asking me my thoughts on video games as sports.
