It’s hard to believe that I launched The Mental Game radio show on QuadJacks only a year ago. When I think back to my first few interviews, it actually feels like it’s been a lot longer since I actually recorded them. I think that’s actually a good thing—I’ve had a really busy/full year both personally and professionally and time goes slower for me when that’s true.
I didn’t really have any expectations from the start, I just wanted to put out a high quality show that would inform and entertain, while also being enjoyable for me to make. It’s amazing to me that some big name guests like Phil Hellmuth, Gavin Griffin, and Olivier Busquet came on and talked so openly about their mental game. And, combined with some great conversations I’ve had with listeners who needed help with some problems in their game, I’m really happy with what the show accomplished this past year. It’s provided something unique in the industry and has given people a place to talk openly and hear players talk about subjects that aren’t commonly discussed in poker.
For the past year, I’ve done the show with QuadJacks and they have been a great to work with. I want to thank Marco and Zac for their help and guidance getting started. I was learning how to create a show on the fly and their feedback and guidance was tremendous. Now, it’s time for me to do the show on my own and release it here at Jaredtendlerpoker.com. This way, you’ll be able to find my radio show, articles, blogs, and forum all in one place. The show isn’t going to change, just the place you go to find it.
What will change is the frequency that shows are released. I’m working hard to finish up TMGP2 and next year I have other projects in the pipeline, so I need a bit more flexibility with my time. I’ll do my best to let you know when new shows are coming, and when I need to take time off. New shows will still come out on Wednesdays and my goal is to do 2-3 shows/month.
Tomorrow I’ll be releasing my interview with Zach Elwood, author of Reading Poker Tells. Come back tomorrow and have a listen, this is the first time I’ve talked about tells and of course we talk about the mental side of tells as well.
As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated. If you have ideas to improve the show, please post a comment or contact me here.
