....and I'm back.

Jon in Oakland

EOG Enthusiast
After a very long hiatus, I'm back in the sports betting audio arena, this time on the Clubhouse app!

Each Thursday at 9pm ET/6PM PT Captain Jack Andrews and I survey the sports betting scene with a variety of guests.

As an example, last week we welcomed:
-Alex Putterman of the Hartford Courant to talk about recently enacted legislation in Connecticut.
-Jake Etienne and Zach Roth, attorneys with the gaming practice at White & Williams law firm to discuss other legislation around the country.

Jack is off this week but Steve Bittenbender of Casino.org will fill in as co-host.
We'll be joined by Geoff Zochodne, a reporter at Covers, to discuss the recently passed sports betting bill in Canada.
We're working on additional guests as well.

Clubhouse conversations are live and unrecorded and we welcome audience participation. Please follow our Twitter feeds for more info:

Captain Jack Andrews: @capjack2000
Jon Spevack: @JonInOakland

Clubhouse is now available on Android as well as iOS and is free of charge as is our audio.
Clubhouse is invite only at present (should be open to anyone soon) but each week I Tweet a link to the upcoming show that allows new users to join.
I wish this technology had been around back when I was doing the old Conference Calls!

Thanks!

PS-Special hello to JK and Computer Bob! Been a long time.

Great to see you back, Jon! Good luck with Clubhouse.

For those not aware, Jon created and hosted a conference call (precursor of the podcast), featuring some very interesting discussions, way back in the day for Fezzik's Place (circa 2006-8) and co-founded the Roughing the Punter forum.

I can't get to any of the past episodes.

Why is this podcast just available through Clubhouse?

You should get it on as many platforms as possible, Otherwise, you're really limiting your audience.

How? Jon's a Pioneer in this business but now he's acting like a Dinosaur.... It's only available through ClubHouse? What's the point of that?

And just so you know that you're dealing with a Real MoFo.... on August 3, 2008, the venerable John Kelly appeared on Jon's show and at 33:37 you started talking about Fezzik.... at the 52:00 mark you talk about writing yourself notes about slowing down and injecting humor....

Do you know how I know this? I have it archived.

You can't archive this Clubhouse shit nor can you listen to past episodes; at least to my knowledge.

Let's do better and get good content out there to the masses rather than some Club House Crowd. When the Crown was on top, I was the Clubhouse Crowd, now, I'm just one of you regular fucking EOG Plebeians and it sucks being you guys.

NBA 2020/21... I was a fucking somebody. People knew my name and feared it.... Hey, that's Bred, that SOB takes out entire Forums.

These days, I got posters threatening charges against me? AGAINST ME! The former Crown Prosecutor. I'm gonna get my job back so people better be very nice to me or they end up on the list!

A dinosaur? We're using one of the newest social media platforms. Tough crowd. I'd forgotten how much fun these message boards are.

While it's true that we don't archive the shows (live only, not recorded) we've found that the format leads to more candid and spontaneous discussion than you might get otherwise. We may look into recording at some point, especially if Clubhouse builds in a recording feature to the service, something I think they'll do later on.

We had a small turnout this past Thursday (even by our standards) but I think the content is good and it will grow. I've been wrong before. Ryan Butler from Action Network joined us along with Steve Bittenbender from Casino.org and Geoff Zochodne from Covers. Captain Jack returns next Thursday and we've already lined up guests Matt Rybaltowski from Sports Handle and someone you may have heard of: Computer Bob!

As for the Clubhouse "crowd", I Tweet a link each week to the show that allows anyone interested to bypass the usual invite procedure. Clubhouse has said the the eventual plan is to open the app to all. It was iOS only for quite a while but there is now an Android version as well.

GameBred: I would be happy to personally invite you, just send me a DM through Twitter.

I'm amazed you have archives of my old shows. I didn't keep anything! Onward.

Tonality doesn't translate via text, I was hoping the "Pioneer" comment offset any negative energy that the "Dinosaur" comment may have brought into existence.

I respect you and viewed it as respecting you enough to be honest. I'd like your content to be more widely available and that's why I came off as critical. I know Clubouse is new but sometimes the old ways are best but it's your show.

I know CB, I used to take copious notes when JK had him on. He's actually the reason I'm a proud Excel 2007 guy today!!! I was contemplating becoming an R-snob and I called into JK's show and talked to CB about it and he said he still uses Excel so I thought if it was good enough for CB, then it's good enough for me. I'll tune into the show next Thursday.

I have several of your shows archived, it's some good shit.

I appreciate the invite, thank you. It would be an honor but FYI, I'm an Exchange Trader and I don't know how much interest your audience would have in that.
Also,, I got rid of my phone as it was distracting me from being the best in the World in what I do (I'm far from it right now) so I hope that isn't a requirement or I could always borrow one.

Shhhh..... If Jon catches wind of this, he will disinvite me from the show.

Go get um Panther!

Congrats, you didn't call me a, "Cheetah," this time. I still have no idea how you thought that was a Cheetah. My Trading Animal Spirit is not that of the Cheetah.
