The Hot Ticket Podcast

A Comedy Cigar Podcast About Two Brothers On A Quest To Find The Best Cigars Around The World.

We began our podcast with one main goal in mind… Bringing the amazing world of cigars to a newer, younger, and curious generation.

Join us on our journey to become Cigar Aficionados as we review cigars, interview industry guests, offer up our advice, and perform experiments in an attempt to learn as much as we can about cigars and its time-honored tradition.

Cory Allen

Podcast Host & Author

Cory isn’t your prototypical cigar smoker. He’s a testament to today’s modern smoker. Having smoked his first cigar at the age 18, he immediately gained an affinity for this seemingly exclusive pastime, and specifically one that is not popular amongst those categorized as "Millennials"

Today, Cory continues to indulge in some of the most highly rated and regarded cigars in the industry and is always seeking to get his grubby little hands on the next great smoke.

Cory brings an ample amount of business and interview experience with him to the Hot Ticket, and continues to immerse himself in the world of premium tobacco, all in the name of ushering in the next generation of cigar smokers.

Chris Allen

Podcast Co-host & Author

Product designer, web guru, brand strategist, entrepreneur, father, over-the-top dungeon master, shitty hockey player, master of analogies, possibly a vampire (because he's 33 and looks 23), and cigar romanticizer.

With only 3 years in the cigar industry, Chris is willing to try any cigar (and we mean any cigar), and has built quite an extensive catalog of cigars he's smoked or reviewed in such a short time.

Today, you can find Chris on Facebook and Instagram posting sexy selfies trying to attract the next generation of cigar smokers.
