The Chasing Poker Greatness Podcast: Featuring Top Pros & Inspirational Mindset Experts

The Chasing Poker Greatness podcast isn’t just a podcast — it’s a convergence of all things poker.

Featuring interviews with top poker pros and inspirational poker mindset visionaries, spliced with weekly episodes of Tactical Tuesday and Philosophical Friday, the CPG pod is fast becoming the commentary, philosophy, performance, history, and strategy breakdown leader in the poker podcasting space.

Poker pro and CPG founder Brad Wilson has spent every waking day since 2019 diving headlong into all of the above, grinding out well over 200 episodes and counting to find out what makes the top pros tick, how to better mentally contextualize this crazy game, and basically trying to decipher with his guests what the best route to reaching poker greatness could possibly be. Or like some things, is the journey more important than the destination?

Not bad for a free podcast! No refunds.
