Info Junkie: Ray Pastore

By Staff Reports, posted Feb 19, 2021

Ray Pastore

Associate professor and Esports program coordinator, UNCW

With a doctorate in instructional systems and as an active YouTuber with over 2.9 million views, Pastore is surrounded by technology throughout his professional and personal life.

Favorite websites include Reddit forums, such as the subreddits esports, surfing and wallstreetbets. He checks out WIRED, Engadget and Medium. And for trends in technology and the stock market, he visits MarketWatch, CNBC and Yahoo Finance.

As an avid surfer he likes to check WB Live Surf, SurfChex and Surfline.

While he prefers reading over listening to podcasts, Pastore does regularly listen to Prediction Esports Biz Show for trends on the gaming and esports industry.

One recent favorite show was Cobra Kai. “I am not a fan of remakes or reboots; in fact, I cringe when I hear another is coming out. But this show has it all - nostalgia, good story, good characters, good writers and just enough cheese to make it fun.”

Another favorite is High Score on Netflix.

Favorite books include “Ready Player Two a sequel to Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.

“Having three kids and a busy work-life balance, I don't get to watch as many movies as I would like,” he said. “I try to introduce my kids to movies that I enjoyed as a kid. For example, we watch movies like The Goonies, Explorers, Rad, Tron and other ’80s and ’90s classics.”
