Hello and welcome to the eighth episode of the Football Media Podcast on the Team of John O'Sheas platform.

I'm Jon Mackenzie and, across the course of the new season, I'm going to be bringing you a weekly podcast that seeks to open up the often-murky underworld of the football media. Each episode will bring you an interview with an expert in as many diverse areas within the industry as possible. We've got writers, authors, artists, journalists, broadcasters, event co-ordinators, lawyers, commentators - if you can name it, we've got it.

This week, I'm speaking to Mark Godfrey – founder and editor of the Football Pink.

In the course of our conversation, we discuss the origins of the Pink, the various ins and outs of running a fanzine and website in the present day, and what the future of the football media will look like for them.

Next week, we will be talking to Shireen Ahmed freelance sports journalist and co-host of Burn It All Down about the protest in the football media. But before that, it's Mark Godfrey, The Football Pink and the place of fanzines in the football media.
