The Football Gods kicks off on Sport Social Podcast Network

The new podcast will join numerous award-winning shows on Europe’s largest dedicated sport podcast network

Voiceworks Sport in collaboration with Wolverhampton Wanderers have launched a brand-new podcast ‘The Football Gods’.

The Football Gods will see a new celebrity each week granted godlike power to shape football to their whim and change its past, present, and future. They will ponder burning questions – from which player they would like to smite, to what would be their one football commandment. Digging deep into each guests own football fandom they will remember some of the great (and not so great) sporting moments from their past.

In its first episode, former England legend David Seaman joins hosts Kate Mason and Tim Spiers to discuss a number of contentious topics, including the ongoing debacle of VAR and the offside rule, the Arsène Wenger diet that changed him, and David Beckham’s ponytail.

The Football Gods podcast is part of Premier League football club Wolverhampton Wanderers’ ambitious strategy to create content that engages a wider audience outside of their core fanbase, something they do through their internal production house Wolves Studios.

Speaking about the show’s launch, Kate Mason, host of The Football Gods said: “It’s incredibly exciting to be a part of bringing a new show to Sport Social Podcast Network and have the opportunity to engage with fans of the beautiful game. As a huge football fan myself, I’m looking forward to hearing the thoughts of football enthusiasts from a range of backgrounds – however weird and wonderful their ideas! We can’t wait to grow our audience and have some fun chatting to our guests.”

Jim Salveson, Director of Sport at Voiceworks added: “It’s fantastic to launch this new show in collaboration with Wolverhampton Wanderers. They truly understand the opportunity for Rights Holders within the audio space and its fantastic to be working with them to realise this ambition. The Football Gods is a really ground-breaking show in the world of official club content demonstrating ambition to reach fans outside of the clubs traditional fanbase and tap into the culture around sport rather than just focusing on the action on the pitch.”

The podcast joins over 300 shows hosted on the Sport Social Podcast Network (operated by Voiceworks Sport) which includes other official club audio products such as The Official Man City Podcast, Iron Cast the Official West Ham Podcast and The Official Brighton and Hove Albion Podcast.

Sound You Can See: Podcasting’s Video Dilemma

For the first time, more podcast listeners say that they have watched a podcast in the last 30 days than have listened to one. Yet, simply popping your pod on YouTube is likely to fail. So, what are podcasters to do? Sound You Can See dives into consumer perceptions of podcasts on video — and how they continue to drive the future of this medium. The study examines differences in perceptions between video primaries and audio primaries, from preferred topics and genres to the surprising demographic that “listens” to more than half of their podcasts on YouTube. We will also look at when podcast consumers choose one over the other.
