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? They also give a loyal listener the chance to win some prizes, as Ervin Cruz ...

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’. In addition, the boys touch on a few headlines from SCOOP, have “breaking news” about the next #PSPC, and give Enrique Gomez from ...

This week, James and Joe are joined by respected writer, teacher and poker reporter Martin Harris to talk about his award-winning book ‘Poker & Pop Culture’, specifically the sections on poker in the movies and poker on TV. Elsewhere, the boys have a brief #EPTRetro recap and celebrate being back on TV in the UK, as episodes of the #PSPC start to air on Channel 4 (every Thursday night for the next nine weeks). Plus, James has a ‘Hand History’ ...

Episode 180 – 17/04/2020 – Lee Jones

James and Joe reflect on the #GalfondChallenge and look ahead to #SCOOP2020, #MicroMillions and #LexNotLive. As they’re continuing to revisit the early seasons of the European Poker Tour on #EPTRetro (streaming every Wednesday and Thursday on the PokerStars Twitch and YouTube channels), the boys catch up with Lee Jones, who was the tour’s Executive Host in the mid-2000s. Lee shares his memories from the “glory days,” including his favourite destinations, and talks about his role as table announcer and poker ...

Episode 179 – 10/04/2020 – Michael Kaplan

James and Joe speak to Michael Kaplan, Senior Features Writer at The New York Post, about his recent article on the real ‘Molly’s Game’, suggesting Tobey Maguire and Houston Curtis were the real masterminds behind this infamous high stakes Hollywood poker game. Michael also talks about his other poker writing, including stories on Phil Ivey and an interview with the legendary Stu Ungar shortly before his death. Elsewhere, the boys celebrate a victory for ‘Sad Sushi Guy’ in the #BSOPOnline, ...

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 176 – 13/03/2020 – Jonathan Little (and special guest J.D. Shapiro)

This week’s episode focuses on the 2nd Annual Global Poker Awards, held in Las Vegas. The boys run through the winners in the major categories, and speak to Jonathan Little, who was named People’s Choice for Poker Personality of the Year. Plus, Joe tells more stories from the set of ‘The Card Counter’ and James rants about having to watch ‘Battlefield Earth’ for the Superfan quiz. But Joe has a surprise in store, as he invites J.D. Shapiro, one of ...

Episode 174 – 27/02/2020 – Platinum Pass winners Rick Bleakley & Greg Armand

With six months to go until the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship in Barcelona, James and Joe take a look at the ‘State of the Platinum Union’, discussing how many #PlatinumPass packages have been awarded so far, how many are still up for grabs, and some of the ways they can be won. The boys also speak to a couple of recent #PSPC2020 qualifiers: Rick Bleakley from Northern Ireland and Greg Armand from France/USA. Joe talks about his new ...

Episode 172 – 13/02/2020 – Jessica Welman

This episode is pretty much dedicated to movies and TV, as the boys talk about everything they’ve watched in the last couple of months. They deliver judgment on the first season of ‘The Mandalorian’ and are joined by the poker world’s resident film expert Jessica Welman to review ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ and the HBO series ‘Watchmen’. Other movies/shows discussed on this week’s podcast include ‘1917’, ‘Parasite’, ‘The Witcher’ and ‘Don’t F**k with Cats’, plus there’s a summary ...

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. The boys recap their trip to Vegas, where James made two final tables (sort of), their unexpected live stream from #EPTPrague, their Christmas/New Year holidays, and Joe’s various losing sessions in Hollywood home games. 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. One of those assignments was hosting a ‘Live at the Bike’s esports special alongside Adam ‘Roothlus’ Levy. Adam is this week’s guest, and talks about transitioning away from professional poker to run his own business, and whether he’ll be best-remembered for calling Phil Hellmuth’s raise with queen-ten or dropping a ...

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 ...

Episode 167 – 07/11/2019 – Platinum Pass winners Mike McGee & Tom Parsons

In the words of Joe Stapleton, there are “Platinum Passes for your asses,” as the boys run a status check on the 2020 PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship. Crucially, they detail how many #PlatinumPasses have been awarded so far and how/where they can be won. They talk Mystery Chests and Mega Paths, and chat to a couple of recent #PSPC qualifiers: online pro Mike McGee from Scotland and student and streamer Tom Parsons from Northern Ireland. Tom also competes ...

Episode 166 – 31/10/2019 – Chris Moneymaker

Lots to get through in this week’s podcast: a bit of movie and TV talk, including James and Joe’s initial thoughts on ‘Watchmen’ and the new ‘Star Wars’ trailer; a summary of the best weekend of Joe’s life; a recap of James’s brief appearance in the ‘Road to PSPC’ tournament hosted by The Hippodrome in London; an interview with Chris Moneymaker about taking his #PlatinumPass tour international, and the woes of travelling from Sochi to Reno via 17 different cities; ...

Episode 165 – 24/10/2019 – Cool Hand Luke & House of Games

It’s a special episode of the podcast, as James and Joe conduct retrospective reviews of two classic films with tenuous poker connections. Yes, following a brief celebration of Mr Stapleton’s score in a tournament at Run It Up Reno, it’s a ‘Poker Movie Monday (on a Wednesday)’ double bill, with analysis of ‘Cool Hand Luke’ (1967) and David Mamet’s ‘House of Games’ (1987). The latter film is the subject of this week’s quiz, as Anton Zykin from London tries to ...

Episode 164 – 17/10/2019 – RIU Reno with Tyson Apostol

Joe is in Nevada for his third Run It Up Reno in 12 months! He talks about what’s happened so far, on and off the tables, including some heavy poker losses and not insignificant video poker winnings. He also explains the rules of Pickleball to James. The boys are then joined by Tyson Apostol, the American reality TV star who’s appeared in multiple seasons of ‘Survivor’, competed in the #PSPC earlier this year, and is now playing poker and Pickleball ...

Episode 163 – 10/10/2019 – Jamie Kerstetter

As advertised on ITV’s ‘The Chase’! James has been incredibly poorly, so was unable to spend last weekend at #LexLive (hence the absence of a full event recap). He also missed out on a screening of ‘Joker’, but Joe’s hot take is that the movie is not worth watching. The boys highlight a couple of #PlatinumPass winners at Aspers, and discuss the other main poker stories of the last seven days: the proposed Stars Group/Flutter merger and the allegations surrounding ...
