By Steve Fredlund
March 23, 2022

Greg Clem returns to the show to interview another member of the panel, and this time it’s Jim Reid’s turn in the hot seat! Jim talks about how games have shaped his life, and how teaching is the best way to learn. He also shares some personal highs and lows, and how his study of philosophy has helped him in poker as well as in life.
