However, we begin by reflecting on the Players Championship Finals in Minehead, where Daryl Gurney defeated Michael van Gerwen 11-9 in a pulsating final to clinch his second PDC major title last month.
We also have an exclusive interview with ITV4 Darts presenter Jacqui Oatley, who discusses her love of the sport, the growth of darts worldwide and the emerging presence of female broadcasters within sport.

We also have the latest instalment of our newest feature called ‘Lord of The Board’, before Neil tests Josh’s knowledge in another entertaining 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 recent weeks, including an injury-scare for World Masters champion Adam Smith-Neale, before the ninth episode concludes with our traditional Q&A section.

In our fourth 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 a busy few weeks of action, including Premier League Finals Night, the German Darts Masters and the recent World Cup of Darts.
The boys also reflect on the recent BDO World Trophy, where Glen Durrant and Fallon Sherrock produced some superb darts to win the respective titles. However, much of the focus fell on the production of the event and the disappointing attendances at the Preston Guildhall.
We also introduce a new feature called ‘Lord of The Board’, which is essentially a round-the-clock challenge. You have 30 darts to hit all 20 big numbers, as well as the outer bull and bullseye.
As a result, the minimum amount of darts that can be used to complete the challenge is 22. Listeners are encouraged to attempt ‘Lord of The Board’ and send in their attempts, but Jon is the first person to take on the challenge.
The boys round-up the latest action on the European Tour and Players Championship circuits, including Josh Payne winning his second PDC title with victory over Peter Wright in Milton Keynes.
Jon and Neil test Josh’s knowledge of all things Raymond van Barneveld 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.
