Mike “The Mouth” Matusow, one of the top professional poker players in the world (with over $10 million in tournament earnings) has become more than just a household name. He’s a favorite among the millions of television viewers who have come to count on his outrageously candid comments, emotional outbursts, and constant taunts that affirm the aptness of his nickname and make for great television theatre. Matusow’s life has been as much nightmare as it has been dream. His struggle with undiagnosed bipolar and ADHD disorders led to self-medication with illegal drugs, and a tumultuous descent in the Las Vegas gambling scene. The Mouth’s story is a high stakes rollercoaster ride featuring an insider’s view of some of the world’s largest poker tournaments, unbearable depression and suicidal tendencies, the Las Vegas party scene, rock star-like excess, outrageous antics, jail, and, in many ways, salvation.

Good Poker Podcast
This is a good poker podcast to listen to. He has many poker stories and discusses some big hands he either won or lost. He also has some good guests on as well. He is very honest about the pitfalls in his life, and I greatly appreciate the honesty. Most people would hide or run from the bad things in the past, but he does not. Although I am a huge Trump supporter, maybe less politics and more poker talk would make this a better podcast. I gave it four stars because I was hoping to get more insight on how to play poker and how to play specific hands in specific table positions. I know he has held back his strategy because he doesn’t want other poker players to listen to how he plays or what he is thinking during a hand. I think Daniel Negreanu talks a lot of poker and but he reveals his poker thought process and he is still a winner. I really want to learn some poker strategies listening to this podcast. Good job overall Mike. I’ll keep listening.
Can be better
If Mike would leave all the political opinions to a minimum, this podcast would have a shot at being good.
Love listening to Matusow. It’s too bad that it’s obviously a poker themed podcast, which will limit the potential audience. Funny, informative and I totally agree with the way he views the poker landscape and also what is going on in America.
