Part Two of the blog’s tenth birthday celebrations comes in the form of an aural treat. It’s a Mayo News football podcast special, which covers life, football and ten years of the blog.
In this podcast special, host Rob Murphy and I went to see Ciaran Murphy at the Second Captains studios off Fitzwilliam Square up here in the capital. There we chatted about the Mayo/Galway thing, the perils of dealing with public debate in the social media era and much more besides. Our musings eventually wandered onto 2017 and how the championship might pan out.
Ahead of the segment at the Second Captains studio, Rob also has an interesting discussion with William Davies of the Craggy Rugby Podcast about the history of fan feedback and media interaction in sport. We’ve all become so used to non-stop fan discussion on our sport of choice but, as William explains, sport can come a long way in this respect over the past forty years.
Rob and I then round off the episode sitting outside at a café on Baggot Street, shooting the breeze about traffic in the city, my bare-faced cheek in making off with a Second Captains mug, the development of the results archive and what we think might happen in the upcoming League campaign.
