Chit Chat

Love listening to you guys, but when you were talking about movies I just wanted to rip Jonathan through the phone and feed him a ton of croissants, because English muffins are clearly better, and I didn’t want to reward him for his crap opinion on action movies. Skyfall is amazing. I am usually team Jonathan, but man you are on thin ice now.

First ever review from a podcast machine

I listen to podcasts probably about 60 hours a week (almost all of them at 2x speed). This is one of the few that I listen to 1.5 speed because I enjoy the episodes that much. I’m currently listening to an episode from august 2020, and decided I had to write a review. These two have the perfect combo of poker and humor ; even the ads are funny. I skip ads on every single podcast and somehow look forward to them on this podcast. Grant and Jonathan are by far the best podcast I listen to and would recommend them to anyone who has even mild interest in poker.

Mixed Feelings

PROS
—These are some of the most podcast friendly personalities in all of poker. Better than Joey Ingram, Cracked Aces, etc

—The hand breakdowns are very thoughtful and granular

CONS
—Bloat. Bloat. Bloat.

Guys, remember what we’re here for: Hand breakdowns. Not your random stream-of-consciousness tangents and attempts at humor. The ratio of hand breakdowns vs random banter is 50/50 (PLEASE turn it down to 90/10). The main issue is, as a listener, I get so lost and confused because I spent the last 10 minutes listening to an Owen Wilson tangent that I completely lose track of the hand. It’s just bad structure and bad pacing an an audio product.

—As a result, the episode is way too long. 45 minutes is insane to invest on one mostly inconsequential hand.
