Finally… finally! Someone has come along to try and knock the Poker in the Ears podcast into shape.
That’s because this week’s episode finds bodybuilder, fitness model, and poker fan Zac Aynsley joining James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton, adding some serious muscle to the show as he talks about his recent 25th-place finish in the Moneymaker’s Road to PSPC event at his hometown casino, Aspers in Newcastle.
Aynsley’s appearance inspired Stapes to brand this as the “Health & Fitness” episode. The theme is basically an excuse for him to talk about his road trip with Norm Macdonald and tell the story of the former EPT crew member who desecrated Joe’s hotel room and abused his toothbrush after an intense gym session!
It also gives James the opportunity to be smug about surviving for five days on a plant-based diet.
Elsewhere, there’s some “Star Wars” chat (“The Mandalorian,” “Jedi: Fallen Order” AND “Maclunkey-gate”), a tribute to the late John Gale, and Sam Pye from London answers questions about “Fleabag” in “Superfan vs. Stapes.”
