Pokercast Episode 51 - Danny Robison

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - The feature guest this week on Pokercast is WSOP bracelet winner and poker legend Danny Robison. Danny comes on the program to talk about several fascinating topics including the rampant drug use in the early days of poker, high stakes golf and his partnership with Chip Reese and Stu Ungar. Also on the program is 2p2er ChicagoJoey talking about his successful completion of a mind boggling poker prop bet. Mike and Adam also talk some tournament news, forum static and of course give away the password for the December 14th Poker Stars VIP Club freeroll.

Re: Pokercast Episode 51 - Danny Robison

Great show, stories were good...although i do say some of the born again stuff got a little old, but each individual story was great...although with all the stories at once the 'churchiness' of the interview dragged on a bit.

Otherwise great show, love the extended 2 hour editions

Ya Mike and I had a debate at the end of the show on what to do about that. Mike thought it was totally off topic and should be cut, but I disagreed.

The man came on to tell his stories and I felt most of the religious stuff was in context with a story he was telling, IMO. I thought it was interesting that he found god to get clean (on a golf course of all places) and I think that if we would cut it all out it would do a disservice to his stories. Also, he mentioned he wanted to talk about god saving him before the interview and we told him that was fine within reason.

I also think our audience is smart enough to take it for what it is. A man that found something to help him through a troubled time in his life and is now convinced that this tool can help others.

I personally am an atheist/agnostic, FWIW.

as am I and I think most if not all the 2+2 team with the exception of Mason's wife who is very religious. David, Mason, Mat and myself were all raised in Jewish families, David regularly posts threads in the Philosophy forum to question organized religion and the existence of god. I think this episode is a good example of how there can be many points of view about the origins of man, 2+2 welcomes them all for vigorous debate, its one of the many things that I love about this forum.

Re: Pokercast Episode 51 - Danny Robison

I loved the Chip Reese stories, the golf stories, the story with the hit man and thought that his talking about his faith was part of the package! Interesting character!

Re: Pokercast Episode 51 - Danny Robison

Nice, I look forward to listening to this. Not that I don't with the others, mind you.

Just yesterday I was listening to an old interview of Chip Reese from the Circuit. As I did, I thought, why has no one brought in Danny Robison as a guest? The Pokercast strikes again!

Based on what some of you are saying, if Robison's interview has this much of a religious twist, perhaps Larry Flynt -- a born-again turned back to atheist -- can be your next guest.

I'm not in to the religious stuff either but it really was part of his story. I thought Danny was a great storyteller and would love to listen to more interviews with him. Another great show guys!

we tried to get Larry a few months ago but he was not in good health at the time. Additionally due to the resporator he may be hard to understand on radio... if its possible we want him on the show but we dont want to put any unnecessary strain on Mr. Flint. I'll check with his handlers again soon to see how he is doing.

Re: Pokercast Episode 51 - Danny Robison

I'm just listening to the show now and have a few notes about 6 minutes in.

1. How do you not mention Doc Marten's in the shoe rundown? Grievous oversight imo.

2. Not to step on Kevmath's toes but is the genre you're looking for reggaeton?

I wouldn't have cut it also, but it just tilted me a bit. But with all his stories he was aloud to tilt me a bit This was probably the best episode you guys ever made.

Btw i just listened to most of the old shows i could still download. Is there anyway i could get the first 50 or so? Cause they are not available for download anymore.
