Poker in the Ears
Monthly+
 
Every week, the hosts of PokerStars TV (James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton) bring you a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like being two regular folks on the international poker circuit. Told from the perspective of a cranky British dad (Hartigan) and an undateable American bachelor (Stapes), Poker in the Ears is a mostly uncensored take on the world of professional poker. The hosts also regularly call in favours, in the form of guest spots from their big-shot celebrity poker-playing friends ...

Ben and Jono trawl the depths of Netflix to find the hidden gems that you may well miss. Every episode (out every two weeks) they review three movies, sometimes striking gold, often not, but always helping you to wade through the countless hours of unknown, unloved and sometimes just unwatchable programming. We Watch Anything, so you don't have to.

As advertised on ITV’s ‘The Chase’! James has been incredibly poorly, so was unable to spend last weekend at #LexLive (hence the absence of a full event recap).
