About Jesse Cox

3 years ago I was a working as an underpaid, unappreciated inner-city school teacher. Struggling to make ends meet, I barely got by. In 2010 I, along with much of the staff was let go as a budget cutting measure and that summer, found myself without many job prospects and without much hope. In depression and boredom I turned to the internet, video games, and youtube as an outlet. I now find myself hosting 3 major podcasts, and running a 400,000 subscriber strong youtube channel. I'm awestruck.
