other football blog brant parsons Interview with Brant Parsons, Orlando Sentinel

Orlando Sentinel soccer writer Brant Parsons is the guest on the latest episode of the EPL Talk Podcast, the only Premier League interview show on the Internet.

Hosted by Kartik Krishnaiyer, best known as the co-host of the American Soccer Show on CSRN, the interview with Parsons discusses several topics including:

  • what it’s like being a soccer journalist/blogger at a big newspaper, and how often soccer is used as a punchline in jokes about sport,
  • how Parsons became an Arsenal fan and got interested in the Premier League,
  • his memories of watching Lionel Bienvenue on the EPL review show that was on FoxSportsNet in the early 90s,
  • which Arsenal players he misses the most,
  • as well as several good conversations about Premier League football.

Parsons writes for The Other Football blog at the Orlando Sentinel where he’s helped convince the management at the newspaper that soccer is a viable topic that can generate ad revenue (thanks to more than 2 million visits per year).
