When it comes to poker podcasts, Chad McVean is all about that #podlife! Known as the king of poker podcast twitter, Chad @Veaner85 shares with the panel how he developed his love for the game, what it’s like to listen to and share over 50 poker podcasts every week, the virtues of mixed games, and some exciting details about playing in private games in and around Toronto over the years. Listen along, or head to YouTube to watch the video!

We also go over this week’s home game results and discuss these topics:
