Poker Podcasts: Gambling Tales Podcast

Now that I drive nearly an hour and a half each way to work at least three days a week, I've started to get into iTunes podcasts.  This has helped me stay sane and made the drive much easier than it would normally be.  I'll often delve into a podcast and then suddenly I'm pulling into the parking deck or home driveway wondering how I got to work in 45 minutes flat.  Obviously that's not really happening, but it feels like time flies when enjoying a good audio show.

It should probably come as no surprise that my favorite podcasts so far are poker and sports related.  Being this is a poker blog, I'll stick to discussing the poker podcasts for now.  Not sure where I'm going with this and subsequent posts, but I'm thinking I might try and make it a series, focusing on one podcast per post.

So let's get started with the most recent podcast I started listening to from none other than Falstaff and Special K.  These are guys I play poker with regularly;  by regularly I mean about twice a year.  I've been pretty lame with the live poker the last few years so making a trip to G-Vegas is about the only time I seem to play these days.  That really needs to change since these guys live in Charlotte and it takes about half the time to get to their home games versus G-Vegas.

Moving on, Falstaff and Special K recently started a podcast called the Gambling Tales Podcast...

As of today this podcast is only 6 episodes deep, and I'm only 3 episodes in, but so far I'm really enjoying it.  The basics of the show are some random discussion from the fellas, followed by an interview and gambling tale from a guest of the show, then a little more discussion to close things out.  The theme of the show is discussing any and all things gambling.  So far each show has had an interesting story from the person being interviewed, which I think is a great idea.

I have to say I'm rather impressed with what the guys are putting together so far.  They have excellent speaking voices and they play off of each other well.  Johnny Falstaff is more the color of the show and Special K really brings it full circle and is on point all the time.  I didn't know what to expect when firing up the podcast the first time, but I'm very much looking forward to finishing out the last 3 episodes and downloading any potential upcoming shows.

From what I can tell, the shows are scheduled for at or around two weeks apart.  If you get a chance, be sure to check these guys out.  At this point they aren't too far along, so you can easily start show number one and get caught up quick.  For a little more detail, take a look at Poker Prof's blog post about the show.

Next up will probably be Short-Stacked Shamus and his Hard-Boiled Poker Radio Show.

Until next time, may the felt be with you.
