Has anyone considered starting a Championship podcast? It’s certainly something I would listen to and I’d be happy to contribute. With all the discussions in the press regarding the future of the Championship, the voice of the fans goes unheard. 

I’m not a media person though so have no experience in this area. There must be some players or ex players who would be willing to contribute. What sort of numbers would be needed to make it viable?

It would be good to interview players , coaches and support staff from all clubs . They all seem trained in presenting to the camera and never seem to say anything out of turn. The clubs would have to submit each interview to the blog but I believe it takes some considerable input . 
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

I think it would be good. There are some decent rugby podcasts out there - The Ruck by The Times is my choice - and having a dedicated focus on this division would be really good. Hopefully this may be picked up as we move forward...

Could be a good selling point for future negotiations on Sponsorship and TV coverage of the Championship.

Doncaster fans (and rugby fans in general!) might be interested to hear from Clive Griffiths on the latest London Welsh podcast:

He talks about growing up in Wales, playing for Llanelli and Wales, going north, and the influence of some of the greats in rugby league on his coaching career.  There's obviously a big focus on his time with London Welsh, but he also talks about his experiences at Donny and gives his thoughts on the Championship and professional rugby in England, as well as the tragic death of Ian Williams.

This week's guest (podcast out later today) is another man with links to both clubs - Ed Jackson.

I co-host a podcast called Boots2Suits which is available on all platforms. Myself and the host discuss all life outside of the premiership but more importantly life after sport and the difficult transition from boots2suits highlighting how 98 percent of professional players are left in the dark when their playing days are over. 

We have managed to speak to some unbelievable characters in our first season of episodes who have years of experience in the champ including Dan Temm, Grayson Hart, Mark Tampin, Chris Walker and Ben Mercer. (Would recommend listening to the Dan Temm or Mark Tampin episodes first as they’re our most downloaded episodes) 

We have also managed to speak to some high profile names in Jerome Kaino, Topsy Ojo and Dom Waldouck.

Let me know if you manage to have a listen with any feedback you have.

Hope everyone is well 
Ben Fairclough (ex Otley player)
