James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton share their podcast highlights over the past three years
Poker broadcasting personalities James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton will celebrate the 100th episode of PokerStars’ Poker in the Ears podcast by hosting a special episode in front of a live audience tomorrow at The Hippodrome Casino in London’s West End.
For the past three years, PokerStars TV hosts Hartigan and Stapleton have brought listeners behind-the-scenes insight into the international poker circuit for a mostly uncensored and often hilarious take on the world of professional poker. Some of the biggest names in poker have graced – and been roasted on – the podcast, including Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu, Hollywood star and global comedy sensation Kevin Hart, and an array of high stakes players and PokerStars Championship Main Event winners.
The 100th episode promises to be a show to remember featuring special celebrity guests and the disclosure of a secret password into an exclusive online freeroll tournament. This celebratory tournament has a $5,000 guaranteed prize pool and will be held on Sunday, October 1 at 20:15 BST. Though tickets to the event have already sold out, fans can still enjoy the show from the comfort of their own homes. The 100th episode will be published on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud and PokerStars on Thursday, September 28. For those who can’t wait for the 100th episode, here’s a list of Hartigan and Stapleton’s favourite episodes so far:
“I can’t actually believe we made it beyond Episode 1,” said James Hartigan, presenter of Poker in the Ears. “But I’m glad we’ve been able to keep going, because I think we’re finally finding our feet! I’ve enjoyed having so many poker players and poker fans on the show, and look forward to talking to many more.”
Hartigan described some of his favourite memorable moments from past podcasts:
Episode 49 – June 2, 2016 – Team PokerStars Pro Maria Ho – “By texting me a ‘Your Mom’ joke, Maria Ho unwittingly inspires me to call my Mother and tattle on her. I’d like to say she wasn’t amused, but she sort of was.”
