015: Dr. Mike - You Can Bet on That podcast
43:23

Episode 15 brings a popular character in the gambling podcast community: Dr. Mike. Dr. Mike is the co-host of You Can Bet on That, a podcast for the recreational gambler. 

I've been listening to You Can Bet on That for nearly a year now, and finally got to meet Mark and Dr. Mike at Gamblepalooza at Foxwoods. After having Mark on The Bettor Life earlier this year, I decided it only made sense to bring on his counterpart. Dr. Mike is a lot of fun and was a pleasure to talk to.

Listen in to learn about Dr. Mike's history in gambling, the enjoyment he gets from it, and where he and Mark may travel to next.
