SORRY, PARTNER is a podcast about bridge and the worldwide community of bridge players, hosted by bridge partners and friends, Catherine Harris and Jocelyn Startz. Catherine played at the SCBC for a number of years before returning to Australia.
Each week they chat with international bridge luminaries and dip into listener mail, sharing stories from around the world about this game we love. Two of our favorites featured Michael Rosenberg and Bob Hamman. Michael plays out of Palo Alto. His spouse Debbie, also a world-class player, ran a class at the SCBC and their son, a rising bridge star, played at the SCBC before he was a Life Master.
You can find SORRY, PARTNER by clicking here or the show's logo in the menu bar on the left and on Apple podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, etc.
