Football fans have always been fighting for the right to express themselves above the din of mainstream media. The football fanzine movement in the 1980s gave birth to the When Saturday Comes magazine. More recently, football podcasts have given supporters the chance to speak their mind and share their uncensored thoughts with the listening public.
Every once in a while, a new podcast comes along that brings a smile to my face. The type of podcast that’s so different that it’s refreshing. In previous years, I’ve introduced you to the excellent MP Red and The Spurs Show — shows that I enjoy listening to even though I’m not a Liverpool or Tottenham supporter.
The same is true about a brand-new Stoke City podcast aptly named Stoke City Etc. While the name isn’t imaginative, the show definitely is. Hosted by Nick and Michael, the low-tech podcast is big on charm and thought provoking interviews. The podcast also features homemade jingles that quickly grow on you.
Whether you’re a Stoke fan or not, give the podcast a listen and you’ll undoubtedly learn a lot about what it means to be a Stoke fan. After listening to this podcast, my only concern is whether they’ll have the stamina to last the whole season without feeling too disillusioned by Stoke’s dire performances on the pitch.
