Hello and welcome to the fifth 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 Ahmed Yussuf – a digital producer at TRT World and a co-curator of the anthology “Growing up African in Australia”.

In the course of our conversation, we discuss football in Australia, the football media there, black bodies in football and the challenges facing people of colour in the media.

Next week, we will be talking to George Starkey-Midha about the work of Kick It Out – football’s equality and inclusion organisation. But before that, it's Ahmed Yussuf, the Australian football media and black bodies in football. Enjoy!
