The best poker Podcast out there

Charlie is a remarkable story teller, and poker player. His podcast gives an inside look into the mind of a top live cash game poker player in modern day Los Angeles.

Aside from the hand histories taken from some of Los Angeles’ largest public cash games; my personal favorite aspect of the podcast is the hosts’ commentary on current events inside the poker world. Hearing the unbiased, and at times, unfiltered opinions in regards to current events is refreshing and uncommon in the poker podcast space.

I recommend any one with an interest in live cash game poker go back and listen to the full catalogue in its entirety.

Great podcast about life and learning

It just so happens that the podcast is poker centered but it’s more about maximizing your life’s experience.

I started with the most recent podcasts and after listening to the last 10 or so I decided to go back and start with the first one. I’m happily working my way through them. Very enjoyable.

Thanks, Charlie! Wishing you well on the felt and everywhere else.
