The Poker Beat and Rhythym and Rhyme and Metal with a Little Jazz and Gangsta and Country Thrown in

by , Apr 9, 2009 | 3:15 pm

Recorded the latest episode of The Poker Beat today … episode is already up. On the show a few weeks ago, we had a spirited discussion about the oh-so-important role of Lady Gaga in poker, and there I was semi-mocked for acknowledging I have a whole playlist on my iPod of just-poker music.

Though the new “All In” song by The Grouch and Eligh (w/ Pigeon John) isn’t included in my public playlist — along with a few other tunes I haven’t yet paid full price for — thought I’d share it with you in case you’re looking to fill out your own iWSOPod with just the right mix of poker-specific musical inspiration to carry you through a tournament or the cash-game grind:

Beyond the Table: 2006-2008

Beyond the Table - Dan, Tom, and Karridy

The BTT crew: Poker talk fused with gay jokes and fat commentary was all the rage in 2007.

Some of you have been wondering, why no new episodes of Beyond the Table? Tom, Karridy, and I have been wondering the same thing. It’s been a good run, and with drinks in the air, three guys who clearly love/hate the sounds of their own voices are calling it podcast quits.

Back when we started, our show about poker but not really about poker stood out as revolutionary in a sea of lame poker interviewcasts with questionable audio quality. Soon after iPod sales were booming as more and more of the world got hooked on downloading poker audio with funny intros and Angry Julie cameos. But Tom couldn’t handle the celebrity and Karridy developed a crack addiction lives got busy and producers for Beyond the Table fared about as well as drummers for Spinal Tap. The show hired Shamus at a fraction of a Cambodian farmer’s wage to pump up our numbers — did he ever get his T-shirt? — but with a new generation of poker podcasts getting better and stronger (Lou Kreiger, Gary Wise, 2+2, Pocket Fives, Ante Up, Poker Road, et al) old-school payola wasn’t enough to save us from going out on the podcast bubble.

Listen below to a heretofore unpublished episode (recorded on 2-27, my dream flop) as your favorite semi-amateur yammerers phone it in for the last and final-ish time:
