My Interview on High Roller Radio
A few days ago I received an e-mail from Derrick Oliver-Dewan. He’s the founder, director, and on-air personality for a new radio format called High Roller Radio.
Derrick said he wanted to interview me for his show. I figured we’d discuss the usual topics going on in the poker world.
To my surprise, Derrick went a lot deeper than I expected, and I certainly talked a lot longer than he planned. A radio show the customarily went 15-20 minutes extended close to an hour, due mostly to me rambling on about Stu Ungar, the World Series of Poker, Poker Night in America, and even some political issues.
Sometime later following our interview, I discovered that Derrick probably was the one who deserved the microphone, for his personal story is far more compelling — and even inspiring — than anything I’ve ever done. I won’t steal away Derrick’s thunder. Instead, I’ll let him tell his own incredible story at his own time. Nonetheless, I expect he will make an excellent feature subject for an upcoming “Facing the Firing Squad.” So, remember the name Derrick Oliver-Dewan.
In the meantime, here’s the re-broadcast of my interview today with Derrick which took place earlier this afternoon
