Interview with Lon McEachern

Together with my co-host Bruce Briggs, I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing longtime ESPN poker commentator Lon McEachern on episode 291 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 that Lon has done over the years. As such, we were able to dig deeper and uncover some new, interesting stories about Lon’s lengthy career in broadcasting in this almost hour-long interview.

Listen to the interview, which starts at the 10:12-minute mark. A transcript is also available.
