    By the way, thanks to FSC’s Bobby McMahon for making the suggestion that we should interview Andy Lyons. Excellent choice.

    Cheers,
    The Gaffer

    Devoted WSC reader. The cost of subscription in The States is prohibitive. I have often debated subscribing nonetheless. Less flashier and substantially meatier than four four two, or so I believe.
    If you had fielded questions before the podcast , I would have requested a query on the topic. Maybe partner with EPL Talk to sell their UK merchandise(books, mags, tees, et al) in The States; since a large part of the cost involves shipping that can be addressed with a franchise located in US. I am sure that enough people would be enthused if The Gaffer and Karthik highlight their witty and insightful writing/products.

  3. Gaz says:

    Subscription is the US is 44 quid, I believe. That’s like $70.

    I’ve only heard great things about the magazine but I’m sure that that cost is putting off a lot of US interest – though I’ve seriously considered it too.

    Also, I see Four-Four-Two in the book stores around me (even an issue of that crap, Match) but I’ve never, ever seen an issue of WSC. Wonder if it’s just my area of if they just don’t have the wide distribution of other magazines.

      You can sometimes find the magazine at Barnes & Noble in the States.

      After listening to the podcast this morning, it makes me want to go to the bookstores this weekend to see if I can find a copy to buy. Definitely highly recommended reading.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for the nice comments about WSC. With regard to price/availability in the US, we do now do a digital subscription which costs £19.50 wherever you are in the world. Details (and free trial issue) available here:
