Aydan Conrad is one of the best controller players Fortnite has ever seen. The 20-year-old had a lot of success with Ghost Gaming before becoming a free agent in April. Now he is focusing on streaming and YouTube creation around battle royales like Fortnite and Warzone. Recently he held a charity stream where he played Shave the Day, a mobile game for IOS and Android from Shick Extreme and Playcrafting. The game's format is familiar to all gamers but the unique aspect is that the further a player goes, the more money is donated to St. Baldrick's Foundation to prevent childhood cancer. Anyone can download the game for free and money will be donated to the foundation up to $250,000. In addition, Aydan is shaving his head for charity as well. On Wednesday, March 27th the streamer will take a razor to his hair with the goal of raising more money for the foundation. On this podcast we talk about the importance of giving back, Warzone trying to unseat Fortnite as the top battle royale and the latest chapter on the debate about aim assist.
