Brand new to the poker training site Tournament Poker Edge is a new podcast called the Chirp Herm Show featuring Mark Herm (pictured), better known in online poker circles as Dipthrong. The show is a little bit different from your standard podcasts that talk about poker news and strategy. Instead, the Chirp Herm Show investigates the poker lifestyle and the issues surrounding it.

Herm commented in a press release distributed by Tournament Poker Edge in recent days, "The show is about poker, but more just my life. I am a recovering alcoholic/addict in the poker community and have been involved in internet poker and backing for as long as it has been around. I talk a lot about my battles with addiction and how it has given me a new lease on life and tons of other stuff. I'm interested in poker gossip and relationships in general."

We told you this podcast from Tournament Poker Edge was a little different than normal. Tournament Poker Edge Co-Founder Derek Tenbusch added in the same release, "I was really excited when we first started talking to Mark about this podcast. However, when I heard the first episode that he sent me, I knew we had something really special on our hands. And based on the early response from listeners, it seems like we were right."

Four episodes of the Chirp Herm Show have been released over the last two weeks. The inaugural show featured an introduction from Herm about his battles with substance abuse and previewed what listeners could expect in the episodes to come. It was released on November 5 and runs for 46 minutes.

The second episode of the Chirp Herm Show featured Amanda Musumeci, a former Bodog pro who bantered about her various poker accomplishments, differences between live and online poker, and her relationship with poker pro Ryan Eriquezzo. The latter is the featured interviewee on the most recent edition, which was released on November 19. Eriquezzo, like Herm, has battled substance abuse and talks about it candidly and openly on the Chirp Herm Show.

The fourth installment of the Chirp Herm Show came out on November 13 and starred Paul "paulgees81" Volpe, a former #1 ranked player on PocketFives. Volpe has over $4 million in tracked online MTT cashes in his PocketFives profile and spoke about his deep run in the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event. Apparently, Volpe also spoke about in his appearance.

Herm formerly backed a host of poker players and has over $3 million in tracked online MTT cashes in his PocketFives profile. He has exactly 90 tracked wins on the site, including victories in the PokerStars Sunday Million and Full Tilt $750,000 Guaranteed for $229,000 and $147,000, respectively. He also tasted victory in the PokerStars $250,000 Guaranteed way back in 2008 for $91,000.

We should probably spend a few minutes talking about Tournament Poker Edge. The poker training site focuses primarily on providing MTT instruction for poker hopefuls. A subscription to Tournament Poker Edge will run you $23.95 per month and, unlike other training sites, there is no signup fee. You can also opt for a $69.95 quarterly subscription (a savings of $25.85) or a $239.95 annual subscription (a savings of $47.45).

Tournament Poker Edge's stable of pros includes brand names like Casey 'bigdogpckt5s" Jarzabek, Mike "goleafsgoeh" Leah, and Justin "looshle" Pechie. Learn more by visiting Tournament Poker Edge. Make sure to catch the Chirp Herm Show while you're there.
