    I don't know if anyone else listens to this each week but I find it pretty interesting. Bob Dancer is one of the hosts, anyone who plays VP knows him. The other guy is a blackjack player, RIchard Munchkin. It's not real polished, sometimes it sounds like it's recorded in someone's basement. I believe it streams live (I don't think it's on an actual radio station but maybe it is) and you can download each one after. They have some interesting guests. Last week was the legendary Ed Thorp. The guy is 84 but you'd never know it. Sharp as hell. Very interesting telling about how he got into figuring out counting. Originally he was working on a "wearable computer" to track roulette (in 1961!) and went to Vegas just to get a feel for casinos, decided to risk $10 at blackjack and immediately started thinking the game could be beat. Another recent guest was slot manager Buddy Frank, he had some good stories/info on machines. One recent episode had Anthony Curtis, Max Rubin and some others talking about the annual Blackjack Ball.

    Anyway if you are a gambler (and you are if you are on this board) it's a usually, not always, interesting hour aeach week. Maybe this has already been discussed on here, I didn't see a thread. You can download past episodes.

    Been listening for years. Lots of great info and stories.

    Richard Munchkin is always hinting about other types of advantage play that are so secret he can't talk about them on air. I always wonder what these secret plays are about.

    Last week was a long interview with Brian Zembic, "the man with the $100,000 breasts". This guy is great. Lots of interesting stories on all kinds of crazy bets he's made. Well worth a listen.

    I very much enjoy this podcast. The quality of the show often varies with the quality of the guests. I really enjoyed the ones with the lottery guy from Canada (Mo Srinavasta or something like that) and the ones with Don Johnson the blackjack player.

    He seems pretty connected to the James Grosjean AP type of plays

    I've also been listening for years. It used to be a radio show but now it is only online.
