Podcasting with Jane

Spotted a Jane Austen reference in the wild!

Podcast: Poker in the Ears

Description: Every week, the hosts of PokerStars TV (James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton) bring you a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like being two regular folks on the international poker circuit. Told from the perspective of a cranky British dad (Hartigan) and an undateable American bachelor (Stapes), ‘Poker in the Ears’ is a mostly uncensored take on the world of professional poker. The hosts also regularly call in favours, in the form of guest spots from their big-shot celebrity poker-players friends. And they routinely hold on-air competitions, providing chances for listeners to join them on tour.

Episode: Episode 205 – 04/02/2021 – Niall Farrell (click to visit podcast page to listen to the show)

Episode Description: It’s a pop culture special on this week’s podcast, as James and Joe discuss some of the movies and TV shows they’ve watched in recent months – with the assistance of an EPT champion! Special guest reviewer Niall Farrell reveals that he’s played very little poker in the last 12 months, spending most of his time being a dad and streaming anything and everything. There are SPOILERS left, right and centre, as the trio break down the Season 2 finale of ‘The Mandalorian’ and talk about the first few episodes of ‘WandaVision’, before moving onto ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ and Pixar’s ‘Soul’. They finish with a critique of Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet’, which James actually failed to watch because he was too engrossed in ‘The Morning Show’. Finally, the 2007 adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion’ is the topic of ‘Superfan vs Stapes’, as Lisa Scott Gordon from the UK competes for a #SundayMillion ticket. With Joe out of action for the next two weeks, #PokerInTheEars is taking a brief hiatus. Expect our next episode at the end of February. In the meantime, please don’t forget to comment, like and subscribe.
