In our second episode of the Josh’s Dartistry Podcast, Josh Gorton is joined by co-hosts Jon Dean and Neil Conner to discuss all the latest news from the world of darts. The team discuss the last few weeks of Premier League action, reflect on the double-header in Rotterdam and preview the rest of the Premier League season.
The boys also give their predictions for this week’s action in Manchester and take a look at the latest tournament odds. However, they kick off the show by paying tribute to the legendary five-time world champion Eric Bristow, who very sadly passed away at the age of 60 on April 5th after suffering a heart attack outside Liverpool’s Echo Arena.
Josh is joined for an interview by Sky Sports commentator Rod Studd, who discusses the Rotterdam double-header, the compelling rivalry between Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld and the rest of the Premier League season going forward.
Rod also spoke movingly about his colleague and friend Eric Bristow and referenced the sadness and shock after news of Eric’s passing filtered through to players, officials and fans on a sombre night in Liverpool.
The boys round-up the latest action on the European Tour and Players Championship circuits, as Max Hopp and Mickey Mansell clinched their first PDC ranking titles in Saarbrucken and Barnsley over the last month.
Jon and Neil test Josh’s knowledge in the return of ‘Challenge Josh’, whilst we look at some of the more obscure darting stories to have appeared in the mainstream media over the last month. We also answer a number of questions sent in by listeners, in a Q/A section which concludes the second episode.
