EPL Talk Podcast Returns: More Interviews On The Way

epl talk logo 163x101 EPL Talk Podcast Returns: More Interviews On The WayThe EPL Talk Podcast, the only football interview show on the Internet, is set to return to the airwaves next week. It’s been over a month since the last episode, and it feels good to be back.

Many of you may know that I took a break for a while due to health reasons (after being in hospital for six weeks). Plus after returning home, I felt like taking a hiatus from doing interviews in order to get back to full health and recharge my batteries.

I’ve already got three interviews lined up for the coming weeks. To learn who the surprise guests are and to post your questions ahead of time so I can ask them on-air, visit the EPL Talk Community forums. Plus if you have ideas of other personalities you’d like to see interviewed, feel free to post them on the Community or via the comments section here.

The plan for the EPL Talk Podcast is to continue recording intelligent interviews with some of the big names in football, as well as the lesser known names who have remarkable stories to tell.

If you’re not familiar with the EPL Talk Podcast, each week we interview a different celebrity from inside the game of football. Past guests have included Steve McClaren, Guillem Balague, Gerard Houllier, Tommy Smyth, Alan Mullery, Simon Inglis and many others. Your best bet to get a flavor for the podcast is to listen to the Best Of Episode produced by Chris Oakley from the Some People Are On The Pitch blog.

The EPL Talk Podcast is two years old this month. All 101 episodes are available via archives on the podcast site and via iTunes.

If you’re a constant reader of this EPL Talk site and you haven’t listened to the EPL Talk Podcast yet, subscribe to the podcast via iTunes and begin listening to the podcast episodes. Most of them stand the test of time and are still relevant.

Even though the EPL Talk Podcast has been dormant for over a month, it’s still the third top soccer podcast in the United States according to iTunes (in the Sports/Professional category, where it’s ranked number 56 among all sports). Number two is the U.S. Soccer podcast and number one is World Soccer Daily.

    Great news the gaffer. Really looking forward to one of the guests you have scheduled for an interview. Keep them coming and agree quality over quantity!

  2. LemmusLemmus says:

    There are quite a few economists who study sports, including footie (some of whom blog here. I would think they have some interesting stuff to tell. In particular, Stefan Szymanski comes to mind.

  3. Sanjay says:

    Cant wwait for Spoony to be on the show!

  4. Simon Burke says:

    Spoony!! Too funny.
    If you can have a go for :

    MArtin Tyler (if you havent had him already), John Motson, Andy Gray, the person at ITVN who stole money from me, Bobby McMahon, Michelle Lissel on life at Toronto, MAx Bretos (he has improved a lot but still prone to idocy and surely would say something daft in an interview), the Irish lad Keith Costigan on FSC and Brad Friedel.

  5. Alex Hleb says:

    can you get ian wright, liam brady, lee dixon, ray parlour, nigel winterburn, or charlie george on the show? or how about tony adams? its probably a long shot, but that would be a great show.

  6. Shakira Graham says:

    Awesome, look forward to hearing you back on the air Gaffer!

  7. The Gaffer says:

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments and also the recommendation of who to interview. I’ll add them to my target list.

    Some of them have already been interviewed in the past by the EPL Talk Podcast such as Keith Costigan, Max Bretos and Bobby McMahon.

    You can find those interviews on iTunes or on the EPL Talk Podcast page (use the search function on the right sidebar) at
