The sounds of botching a Bellagio robbery, Jersey casinos un-resurrected, scholarly gaming pursuits @UNLV + hardcore legalese w Disco Stu

So many new podcasts. At least the voices in our heads are staying fresh … and there really is more news and analysis related to poker and gaming and casinos and gambling than you can read all over the internet.

Some shows I recently found and/or enjoyed … you may want to give a listen, and perhaps bookmark for recurring download:

Poker Fraud Alert Forum Radio — I try to steer clear of industry love triangles, but sometimes can’t avoid the latest Donkdown breakup story. New and clique-worthy from Druff and Drexel: the pilot episode of their version of the old show, complete with real newschat about a botched pepper-spray robbery for Bellagio cranberries (as per plans hatched on Craigslist), the felony arrest of alleged exposed Vegas scammer Peter Falcone, and informed tangential discussion of female biology on, off, and under the table. http://pokerfraudalert.com/forum/radio.php

Vegas Gang Podcast — Pub-style virtual roundtable, featuring gaming industry wonks talking about non-poker casino numbers and constructions stories with a little history and on-air smoking. http://www.vegasgangpodcast.com/2012/05/vegas-gang-78-may-17th-2012/

CEM Audio Edge — Twitter’s @GamingCounsel (and Pokerati’s own non-binding legal correspondent) Stu Hoegner takes the mic at Casino Enterprise Management for a guest hosting gig and Jersey-style cage match with DC lobbyist and iMega chieftain Joe Brennan, Jr. http://www.cemaudioedge.com/episode/gaming-law-news-guest-host-stu-hoegner

UNLV Gaming Podcast — Dr. David Schwartz’s advanced study of degen living, aka UNLV’s Center for Gaming Research, provides statistical data set to audio, and sometimes featuring research fellows presenting their findings on matters like, on the episide I heard, the sociology of gambling expansion. http://gaming.unlv.edu/podcast.html

    Two more new ones that blow these away are 3 Streets of Value and Badugi All-Stars.

    I’ve heard badugi all stars. The other one not so much. And either way they don’t really compare, do they? I mean hearing stu wonk out with his donk out really can’t be matched!

    The Poker Fraud Alert radio is pretty corny. Not a big fan of Todd’s complaining. His negative views are bad for poker. Dan you should check out 3 Streets of Value. Good quests and their interviews are well done. I just prefer podcasts with guests. This week Matt Glantz and Adam Levy on 3 streets. They work harder than these other podcasts for sure. Rounders radio

    I will check it out. Thanks for the recommendation. There really are a lot of good shows now. And a lot of shitty ones lol.

    Badugi All Stars recently reinvested in their gear, streamlined the format a bit and is getting more top tier guests. It’s no Poker Beat (gawd I miss that show) but it’s better than the ‘beta’ version of its original effort.
