Hello and welcome to the sixth 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 George Starkey-Midha – a Media and Communications Officer at Kick It Out –football’s equality and inclusion organisation.

In the course of our conversation, we discuss the role that the media plays in Kick It Out’s attempts to educate individuals and respond to instances of discrimination within the world of football.

Next week, we will be talking to Alex Stewart about Tifo, a media company producing animated videos and changing the face of the football media. But before that, it's George Starkey-Midha, Kick it Out and the Role of the Media in the fight against discrimination. Enjoy!
