They take a look at two poker-themed motion pictures: ‘A Big Hand for the Little Lady’ (1966) and ‘Runner Runner’ (2013).

After recapping the final, FINAL stats from #SCOOP2020, and discussing the latest developments in the Mike Postle case, James and Joe are joined on the podcast by psychologist and author Maria Konnikova, ahead of the publication of her new book ‘The Biggest Bluff’. Maria spent nearly three years on the professional poker circuit, and this book details her journey from novice to accomplished (and sponsored) player, under the guidance of Erik Seidel. Sadly, there is no ‘Superfan vs Stapes’ this ...

Episode 184 – 29/05/2020 – SCOOP Correspondent Benjamin ‘Spraggy’ Spragg

There may still be a few days to go until #SCOOP2020 is in the books, but that’s not going to stop James and Joe from recapping the series right now! They take a deep dive into this year’s Spring Championship of Online Poker with their SCOOP Correspondent Benjamin ‘Spraggy’ Spragg. The trio talk about Connor Drinan’s record-breaking haul, Lex Veldhuis’s record-breaking stream, and Spraggy’s record…collection?

Episode 183 – 22/05/2020 – David Costabile

After a two-week break from podcasting – while they focussed on streaming #EPTRetro and #SCOOP2020 – James and Joe are back to recap the Stars CALL For Action Celebrity Charity Tournament and talk to the winner of the event: David Costabile, the New York-based actor best known for playing Wags in ‘Billions’ and Gale in ‘Breaking Bad’.

Episode 180 – 17/04/2020 – Lee Jones

Michael makes a guest appearance on the show and talks about his love affair with poker, from Baseball (a strange variant involving ...

Episode 177 – 19/03/2020 – Danny Zuker

A lot has happened/changed in the last seven days, and the boys are unable to ignore the impact of real world events, as they host this week’s podcast from their respective homes. They discuss the postponement of EPT Sochi and EPT Monte Carlo, and, in the absence of new live tournaments, their plans for a series of live streams taking a retrospective look at the early seasons of the European Poker Tour. Production has halted on poker movie ‘The Card ...

Episode 172 – 13/02/2020 – Jessica Welman

Episode 171 – 06/02/2020 – Joseph Kahn

James and Joe are back with the first #PokerInTheEars of 2020. It’s been more than two months since they last recorded a podcast, and a LOT has happened since then.

They’re joined by the host of one of those games: Grammy and Emmy-winning filmmaker Joseph Kahn. ...

Episode 170 – 28/11/2019 – Adam ‘Roothlus’ Levy

The boys present their season finale: the last #PokerInTheEars podcast of 2019. Joe’s had a busy week, with stand-up shows and poker commentary gigs in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Episode 169 – 21/11/2019 – Zac Aynsley

The boys are joined by bodybuilder, fitness model and poker fan Zac Aynsley (aka: ‘Mr Biceps’), who recently came 25th in Moneymaker’s ‘Road to PSPC’ in Newcastle. As Zac is the guest on this week’s podcast, Joe has branded it the ‘Health & Fitness’ episode. The theme is basically an excuse for him to talk about his road trip with Norm Macdonald and tell the story of the former EPT crew member who desecrated Joe’s hotel room and abused his ...

Episode 168 – 14/11/2019 – Daniel Negreanu

In the last few days, Joe has found himself watching boxing, and James has spent too much money on a video game he can’t/doesn’t want to play. But this week’s episode mainly focuses on the poker controversy “du jour,” as Daniel Negreanu is named World Series Player of the Year, only to discover a couple of days later that a clerical error has been made and he’s not actually the winner. In the latest in a series of appearances on ...
