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 ...

Episode 162 – 03/10/2019 – Live at Lex Live 2 with Lex Veldhuis

Joe is in LA, while James is where the action’s at: Aspers Casino in London. This week’s podcast was recorded at Lex Live 2, with many members of Lex’s community and other popular streamers (plus Spraggy) in attendance. Joe talks about his experience playing PokerStars VR for the first time and his lack of success in the VRPT. But most of the show is focussed on special guest/co-host Lex Veldhuis, as he explains the objectives of #LexLive, the learnings from ...

Episode 161 – 26/09/2019 – WCOOP 2019 with Benny Glaser

Joe’s gearing up for a weekend of action on PokerStars VR, while James pays tribute to the late Al Alvarez, author of ‘The Biggest Game in Town’. The main focus of this week’s show is #WCOOP2019. There’s a full recap of the World Championship of Online Poker, including key stats and notable victories, and the boys are joined by WCOOP-23-M champion – and three-time WSOP bracelet winner – Benny Glaser. Finally, Shaun King from the UK chooses ‘The Magnificent Seven’ ...

Episode 160 – 19/09/2019 – The Grand with Andrew Hill Newman

James and Joe continue their occasional series of retrospective reviews of “classic” poker movies by looking back at the 2007 comedy ‘The Grand’ (aka: ‘Loser’). They’re joined on the podcast by actor, writer, producer and ‘Celebrity Poker Showdown’ co-creator Andrew Hill Newman who played the dealer in the film and served as the on-set technical poker advisor. ‘The Grand’ is also the subject of this week’s quiz, as Ben Martin from the UK competes for an #EPTPrague satellite ticket in ...

Episode 159 – 12/09/2019 – Platinum Pass winners Danielle Summer & Daryl Inglis

James and Joe are back from Barcelona. After discussing an unfortunate incident that resulted in the destruction of James’s new shoes, the boys recap their trip to Spain and the record-breaking #EPTBarcelona Main Event. They also talk about the #ChaseYourDream live stream, which included the launch of the PokerStars Players’ Championship 2020 and the presentation of the first five packages to next year’s #PSPC. Two of those #PlatinumPass winners are on this week’s show: Danielle Summer from Tenerife and Daryl ...

Episode 158 – 22/08/2019 – Jessica Dawley

The boys start this week’s podcast with a few movie and TV reviews, and Joe has details of another losing session in a Hollywood home game. He also tells the tale of an unnecessary road trip across Florida caused by a gap in his geographical knowledge. Talking of Florida, James and Joe run through the winners of the “Big Four” at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, and speak to the champion of the $2,650 event, Jessica Dawley. Jessica is ...

Episode 157 – 16/08/2019 – Garry Gates

James and Joe are back from their summer break and kick off the show by discussing what they’ve been up to in the last eight weeks. In Joe’s case, that’s mostly nothing, but he did make the final table of a charity tournament in LA, and has a fun anecdote involving Bruce Buffer and a swag bag. As the boys find themselves pitted against other poker commentators in a slightly awkward popularity contest, they resurrect ‘Social Media Beefs’ to take ...

Episode 156 – 06/06/2019 – Bruce Buffer

For their "season finale," the boys have a bumper episode, kicking off with some TV chat (04:00) and Joe's report from the World Series of Poker (09:20), where he played in the Big 50. Expect some questionable analysis, as Joe breaks down a hand he played/butchered on the first day of the event (13:35). There’s an extended interview with this week’s special guest: UFC announcer Bruce Buffer (20:30). The “Veteran Voice of the Octagon” talks about the two passions in ...

Episode 155 – 30/05/2019 – SCOOP Correspondent Benjamin ‘Spraggy’ Spragg

James is in London, while Joe is in Vegas, after spending SIX whole days at home playing video games (02:50). The boys run through the latest poker headlines (07:30), including Daniel Negreanu’s big announcement and the dates for Lex Live 2, before launching into a recap of the 2019 Spring Championship of Online Poker with their #SCOOP2019 Correspondent Benjamin Spragg (13:25). Spraggy talks about his personal highs and lows of the series, including his epic folds – some good and ...

Episode 154 – 23/05/2019 – Danny Tang

For the last time on this podcast, James and Joe talk ‘Game of Thrones’, as the series FINALLY concludes (05:30), before summarising the big winners and headline-grabbing stories from #SCOOP2019 (10:40). There’s a quick recap of Joe’s final few days in Montenegro, including an interesting encounter with Jungleman and durrrr (15:55), plus the boys speak to Danny Tang, who’s worked his way up from Manchester’s low stakes cash games to playing Super High Roller events (17:55). There’s a recap of ...

Episode 153 – 16/05/2019 – Marle Cordeiro

Joe is starting to suffer the effects of physical and mental exhaustion, after working 16 consecutive long days, watching and talking about people play poker for ridiculous sums of money! He and James have a quick chat about ‘Game of Thrones’ (05:00) and #SCOOP2019 (09:05), before launching into a recap of the Triton Super High Roller Series in Montenegro (11:40), including details of the secret cash game that’s even MORE secret than the other secret cash game that everyone secretly ...
