The Brief

For this year's British Podcast Awards, we entered our Football Inside Out podcast, hosted by Monki and Heath Pearce. The series had a total of 33 daily episodes for COPA90 around the 2019 Women's World Cup in France. It was a massive creative and logistical undertaking with the production team based in Paris then Lyon, as they followed the tournament.

The BPA were looking for entries that were be able to demonstrate a fanbase loyal to the podcast, beyond the dreams of most sports clubs. Audience size is not a factor: making niche sports accessible to wider audiences would be as valued here, as much as any show pegged to a major sporting tournament.

The Solution

We are delighted to have won Gold in this year's sports category with our Football Inside Out podcast. The judges were deeply impressed by β€œthe energy, drama and personality that shone through. The rapport between the hosts created a sense of warmth, the interviews were thought-provoking and surprising, and the overall sound treatment immersed us in a historic and exciting time for women's football.”
