Social Distancing With Friends: DraftKings' Jayne Peressini

Jayne Peressini, senior director of growth marketing at DraftKings, quips that she’d been practicing social distancing for a long time before the coronavirus took over all our lives – she’s got two kids under the age of three at home.

Evenings are spent playing family games and binge watching “Tiger King” on Netflix with her wife, Maggie.

These days, Jayne is still keeping super busy at work, despite the fact that live sporting events have been canceled across the board. Egaming and daily fantasy sports are “going nuts,” she says.

There are lots of things you can bet on other than sports, from “Jeopardy!” on Sportsbook to … marble racing.

It’s a thing. Google it.

Also in this episode: Jayne explains how she’s keeping up morale on her team with Top Chef-themed lunch contests, group yoga and “fancy Fridays.” That’s why she’s wearing a tuxedo, P.S.
