Interview with Norman Chad

Together with my co-host Bruce Briggs, I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing ESPN poker commentator and funnyman Norman Chad on episode 282 of the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast.

We put a lot of time and effort into doing research prior to the interview to ensure that we covered topics not yet explored in-depth via other interviews Norman has done over the years. As such, we were thrilled to get some great laughs and new stories from Norman in this almost hour-long interview.

Listen to the interview, which starts at the 3:45-minute mark. A transcript is also available.
