One of the things I love being able to do with this poker blog is turn the mic around on those who produce poker content. Though he’s not “officially” a member of the poker media, “Chicago” Joey Ingram has built a tremendous following over the years amongst hard core poker fans who love listening to and watching his interviews and conversations with the world’s top online poker pros and other behind-the-scenes people in the poker community.
His face and voice are familiar to practically everyone, but it’s ultra rare for Joey to “give up the host’s seat” and allow someone else to ask the questions. So, big shout out and thank-you to Joey for graciously allowing me to “conversate” with him. I hope everyone out there enjoys what he has to say.

Check out the interview to learn more about what makes Cody tick, to see what else he hopes to achieve in his poker career, and to perhaps learn some important lessons about living a poker lifestyle.

Maria Ho’s star has continued climbing in poker. Each year she gets more and more visible as a wonderful ambassador for the game, and she’s doing a great job of promoting it to the masses, women in particular. She was kind enought o sit down with us for an interview during the PokerListings Battle of Malta, which she was hosting for the second time. We asked her about her family history, getting into the poker industry, women in poker, and much more. You won’t want to miss her answers!
