Hello and welcome to the sixteenth 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.

This week, I'm speaking to Benjamin Roberts – author of the book Gunshots & Goalposts, a history of football in Northern Ireland.

In the course of our conversation, we discuss his experiences of writing a first book, the self-publishing process, and what he is doing differently as he prepares his second book for more traditional publication.

Next week, we will be speaking to Joe Cable about lecturing journalism, Raheem Sterling and racism in the media, but before that, it's Benjamin Roberts, book publishing and the history of football in Northern Ireland.
