On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway discuss the upcoming 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) including the announcement that masks will not be required when playing, the PokerGO live stream schedule, and what events they might play!

They also recap recent winners from various major online events, talk about The Card Counter film starring Oscar Isaac and Tiffany Haddish, and remember comedian Norm Macdonald, who passed away this week after a private battle with cancer.

Finally, Chad chats with Tara Windsor-Smith of the Women's Poker Association (WPA) and Erin Lydon of Poker Power about the “Raise It Up” Movement, which is their global challenge to support a zero-tolerance of abuse policy in the industry. To sustain and expand the player base, the culture and environment in poker rooms need to elevate. Together, poker players, industry partners, and poker rooms become the driving force for growth in poker. Learn more about it in this week's episode of the PokerNews Podcast.
