#44 Norman Chad: The Voice of Poker's Most Memorable Moments

Full Episode Description
Aloha and hello my friend and welcome to the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast. As always, this is your host the founder of Brad Wilson and today’s guest is a LEGEND in the poker media arena Norman Chad.Before we jump into the conversation, I want you to take a second to imagine a time when NO poker was on television and it wasn’t even a given that the WSOP would continue on a year-to-year basis.It was in this environment that Norman was asked to be a commentator for a thing that he or almost anybody else on the planet even knew needed commenting on. Luckily for the poker world, Norman decided to move forward with the gig after being on the fence and the rest, as they say, is history.Along with being one half of the OG poker commentary team on ESPN with Lon McEachern, Norman is a sportswriter and syndicated columnist who has also written episodes for TV shows Arliss and Coach.In our wide-ranging conversation we’re going to travel through Norman’s career in journalism, poker, his future projects, and the state of social media.You’ll also learn:- How Norman got the WSOP commentary gig in the first place despite knowing BUPKIS about poker strategy.- What being at the WSOP felt like before it became the spectacle that it is today.- Why Norman feels the poker community needs to lighten up over relatively minor issues.- Why betting sports is a sure-fire way to torch your money over the long-term.- And much, much more!So, without any further ado, I bring to you my conversation with the one and only WHAMBOOZLER supreme, Norman Chad.
