It was back in January of this year when a podcast known as the "First Touch" was launched. The show is being headlined by Demar "Dazerin" Williams, Raul "Roll Dizz" Diaz, and Tyler "TBates" Bates, and talks about Rocket League esports. Since then, there has been a total of 10 episodes.

Because of how good the series is, it caught the eye of Rocket League itself and is now being put on official channels.

As already mentioned, it’s all about the esports scene of Rocket League. This is a good source for fans who want to hear, for example, why Jason "Firstkiller" Corral may be the world’s best Rocket League player. It’s also the place where people discuss why G2 Esports has yet to win a Regional Event.

What makes the podcast even better is that Dazerin, Roll Dizz, and TBates come from different parts of Rocket League. That means listeners get some unique and excellent viewpoints on each topic.

The show will be streamed exclusively on the official Rocket League Twitch channel. For those who miss it, don't worry. After the show airs, the VODs are then added to the official Rocket League Esports YouTube channel. First Touch airs every Monday at 1:00 p.m. ET. Here's the schedule for the first 14 episodes:

  • Episode 1: March 15

Rocket League was released in 2015 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and it describes itself as a vehicular soccer video game. Think soccer but instead of characters, players are inside rocket-powered cars. The game has two teams of eight players fighting for victory. It offers both single-player and multiplayer modes and is playable online or through a local network. The game also offers cross-platform play. Rocket League first required a fee but since September 2020, has shifted to a free-to-play format.
