Joe Virgillito chats with Dave Forman, Senior Director of Research for the American Gaming Association, about the organization’s newest findings that 26 million Americans will bet more than $6.8 billion dollars on this year’s Super Bowl. Joe is then joined by Ryan Lee for a quick gambling primer. They’ll discuss this Sunday’s Big Game, best bets, and silly prop plays.
Later in the episode, Charles Hinshaw and J. McVay discuss the new Russian movie, ‘Beanpole,’ directed by Kantemir Balagov — out now from Kino Lorber.
And we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Brooklyn band The Makeout Club, from their upcoming BTR Live Studio session.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu. Joe Virgillito is associate producer.
