Blake Eastman is a guest like no other we’ve had. He is a professional poker player and founded School of Cards, the first brick and mortar poker school in the country and is the creator of Beyond Tells, a poker tells training site. He has a graduate degree in psychology and taught psychology at the City University of New York for six years. While he was doing that all of that, he also provided consulting services to physicians, practices, and hospitals regarding nonverbal communication and conducts large scale independent research on nonverbal communication.

The current pandemic has hamstrung our ability to read nonverbal communication and convey it. We are either behind a mask or a blurry image on a telehealth visit. He teaches us what to prioritize with regards to our own nonverbal cues, how to optimize a telehealth visit, the importance of the cadence and volume of our speech, and cues for recognizing understanding.
