The Hosts

Brian Shapiro

39 year old Brian, known as the instigator, has a deep passion for broadcasting and worships Howard Stern. Originally an East Coaster, he has 18 years of Radio, TV, and Newspaper experience. Brian voted for Romney and has a signed poster of McCain in his home, and conservative listeners perceive him as a liberal. Brian is an exceptional interviewer and always treats his guests with respect and is seen as the more “tightly wound” personality on the show.

JD Sharp

33 year old Jason is a Midwesterner who is a wagering specialist. Known as “the voice of reason” on the show, Jason is a proven handicapper with a deep voice and a deep love for Vegas. A fan of Donald Trump, Jason is mostly conservative and listeners perceive him as leaning right.

The two met at a poker table where Brian learned that Jason was a professional handicapper. He promptly had Jason pick 10 games over a week – Jason went 9 and 1. From there the two hit it off and the dynamic duo was formed.
