SBC Podcast #48: Simon Nott – A lifetime in Betting and Bookmaking Explored

For the latest SBC Podcast and a festive special, I had a guest with a difference and a man more used to asking the questions than answering them – Simon Nott.

Simon is perhaps best known for his #BettingPeople interview series (I was a guest earlier this year) but his expertise does not end there! He is a fountain of knowledge; punting, writing, bookmaking, blogging, publishing, broadcasting – he’s done it all!

You can listen to Episode 48 now via Apple / Spotify / Google and all other major podcast directories (search Smart Betting Club)

We talk about:

  • Simon’s book and his two professional loves – racing and rock ‘n’ roll
  • The magic of the betting ring, Simon’s experiences of the hustle and bustle of working for bookmakers and a beginner’s guide to tic-tac!
  • The background to Simon’s exotic wardrobe!
  • Punting and fruitful friendships that have boosted profits along the way
  • #BettingPeople, it’s back story and some gossip about the guests!
  • The future of bookmaking and the gambling industry

Simon was a brilliant guest and his enthusiasm shone through during all of the topics we discussed. As well as having enough anecdotes to fill 10 podcasts, his wealth of experience in the betting world provided so many valuable insights. He is also one of the nicest guys you could ever hope to meet so definitely go and say hello if you see him on course!
