By Jim Reid
November 01, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel interview Sarah Herring about her 12 years (!) at Poker News and her new start at Poker.org. Sarah talks about her favorite interview and her least favorite (you might be surprised!). She goes into what it’s like to get started in the poker media world and gives some advice for people interested in getting started. She also shares a few embarrassing stories from her time at Poker News – and Jim’s Mom even gets a shoutout. Plus we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us on YouTube next Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real time, and you can win too.

Sarah is active on Twitter as @auntychardonnay and starting on November 1 you can find out more about her new position (we vote for “Drama Czar”) by going to poker.org

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