In our eighth episode of the Josh’s Dartistry Podcast, Josh Gorton is joined by co-host Jon Dean and new panellist Jordan Harrison, with regular co-host Neil Conner away on business.
There’s plenty to discuss after a whirlwind week in the darting world, and the team discuss the news that Raymond van Barneveld will retire from professional darts after the 2019/2020 World Championship, with Josh picking out some of his favourite RvB memories.
We also reflect on the World Series of Darts Finals in Vienna, which was won by a resurgent James Wade in one of the most thrilling finals in recent memory.
Then the focus switches to the recent Grand Slam of Darts, where Gerwyn Price defeated Gary Anderson in a final littered with controversy.
The panel discuss an eventful week in Wolverhampton and give their thoughts on an ill-tempered clash between Price and Anderson, which is currently being investigated by the Darts Regulation Authority (DRA).
We also have an exclusive interview with two-time world champion Adrian Lewis, after Josh caught up with ‘Jackpot’ earlier this week to discuss his season so far, his struggles in 2017 and his hopes for the next twelve months, as he bids to return to the world’s top eight.
The team look ahead to the Players Championship Finals, which begins in Minehead this Friday. Ian White will be the top seed at this year’s event, whilst reigning champion Michael van Gerwen aims to return to winning ways ahead of next month’s World Championship.
We also have the latest instalment of our newest feature called ‘Lord of The Board’, before Jon tests Josh’s knowledge in another unmissable episode of ‘Challenge Josh’.
The JDP panel then reflect on some of the more interesting darting stories to have appeared in the mainstream media over the last week, including news from the Women’s World Championship qualifiers. The eighth episode then concludes with our traditional Q/A section, and the listeners weren’t short of questions to send in this week!
