For fans of sports, esports, gambling and/or cryptocurrency, the entertainment value available on the ICON network just got a whole lot better. Four brand new podcasts with a little something for everybody just launched on the ZenSports Podcast Network.
All four podcasts will be updated weekly, each with different subjects about sports betting, esports, gambling in general and cryptocurrency. Current episodes range between 35 to 60 minutes, making them good companions for a run in the park or your daily commute.
Previously on the ZenSports Podcast Network, ZenSports Co-founder and CEO Mark Thomas hosted the Ball & Chain podcast, which was focused on all things sports betting. This long-running show has ceased to be, and is now rebranded as Betting Matters, with Thomas still hosting. ZenSports is also bringing on three new show hosts for the other three podcasts.
For newcomers to the ICON Project, ZenSports is a sports betting DApp built on the ICON blockchain. The platform accepts ICX for bets (among other currencies) and even has esports betting. They have a good deal of traction, including full licensing in Nevada, where Thomas owns a small brick-and-mortar casino.
Without further adieu, here is the new lineup of podcasts for your listening pleasure this weekend. Each podcast already has their first episode up (with the entire back catalog of Ball & Chain episodes available on the Betting Matters page), so there’s already plenty of content at the ready.
