<p><a href="https://www.twitch.tv/">Twitch</a><a href="https://www.twitch.tv/">.tv</a><a href="https://www.twitch.tv/"></a> is a video streaming platform where millions of people broadcast their lives and video game action in real-time. It's like unedited,<span> </span><em>real</em>, reality TV. This week, On the Media digs into why so many people want to share so much on Twitch, and what it tells us about the future of entertainment. First, a look at a couple of the biggest streamers of the platform, Ninja and Dr. Disrespect, who command devoted audiences and giant paychecks. Then, Bob dives into the inaugural season of the Overwatch League, the most expensive and highly produced pro gaming venture to date. Finally, Brooke speaks with Radiolab's Jad Abumrad about the life of a homeless streamer who's life was saved by Twitch.</p> <p>1.
