Talking to Social Media Managers around the sports world on how their roles and the content they produce has been turned on its head during the current crisis.

    TABLES TURNED - Kait Borsay, Radio/TV Presenter & The Offside Rule podcast

    Welcome to the Social & Sport podcast, once again going back in time a little to the Tables Turned series I first ran last year.
    The idea is to speak to some of the best interviewers to find out what their secret sauce is and how we can get better at asking the right questions.
    In this one I spoke to Kait Borsay, one of the first females presenters to be associated with Talksport and has worked for SkySports, Sky News, Arsenal and Chelsea FC TV channels and the Premier League.
    You may also know her as one third of the highly acclaimed Offside Rule podcast alongside Lynsey Hooper and Hayley McQueen. A show that’s been running since 2012 and is now part of Muddy Knees Media alongside the Totally Football Show.
    You’ll hear stories of interviews with Phil Neville, Rafa Benitez and a very awkward moment during a chat with Sir Sebastian Coe. You’ll have to listen on to find out what happened there.
    Thanks again for listening, make sure you subscribe to catch more from this series. And also have a look back at previous lockdown shows from the last few months.

    Here are some links to what we speak about during the show;
    Interview with Joe Hart
    Interview with John Barnes
    The Exit List
    Thanks to Tom Yoke from Playfinder for stepping in and kindly hosting us for this recording at their central London office.

    TABLES TURNED - Sky Sports presenter David Garrido

    TABLES TURNED - Sky Sports presenter David Garrido

    In a 'new' show as part of Social & Sport I wanted to return to something I put together last year. 'Tables Turned' talked to the interviewers about how they do what they do.

    In it I spoke with Kait Borsay, Alexandra Legioux, Richard Gillis, Faye Carruthers... and there were a couple I didn't publish which I'll look to do now. Over the next few weeks I'll be publishing a new episode every Thursday, as well as continuing with 'The New Normal' series. 

    But firstly I'm delighted to welcome sports broadcaster, event host and podcaster extraordinaire David Garrido. 
    His interviewing career almost ended before it began with what should have been an opportunity of a lifetime with a Spurs legend. Thankfully for David, and for us, he persevered with his dreams, took the lessons from it and landed an amazing role through BBC Talent at BBC Sport in 2001, staying at the broadcaster before moving onto SkySports in 2011.  
    We get into how he prepares for big interviews to make sure it looks as effortless as possible. His approach to hosting is so open and engaging that he quickly makes people feel comfortable and is one who tries to make it less of an interview and more of a conversation.
    David has some fantastic stories around some of the biggest names in sport from David Beckham to a then-newly crowned F1 World Champion, Jenson Button. His love though is for Spanish football which is his main expertise when it comes to football. This led to him creating the weekly La Liga Lowdown podcast to get the lastest from the league.
    I also mention his famous dance moves when celebrating in the Sheffield Wednesday dressing room after their play-off win back in 2016

    Audio and the benefits of it are often overlooked, despite the rise to prominence of podcasting and the likes of Amazon's Alexa appearing in everyone's car and home.

    So this week I spoke with Sophie Hind and Jim Salveson from Voiceworks to discover what the opportunities and challenges are currently, and where the industry is heading.

    The future of audio, both podcasts and voice, is a bright one and there are many in which it can benefit your team, sport or business. Check out https://www.voiceworks.ai to find out more.

    Pranav Soneji is one of the founders of the fantastic agency, LiveWire Sport, who include the ATP, Wimbledon and the Premier League (amongst many others) as clients. 

    Not only does Pranav stay heavily involved in the agency's work but has found time to set up, alongside Head of Marketing & Comms Jason White, the Diversity in Digital Sport programme. 
    At a time when diversity is at the forefront of everyone's thoughts, the programme is one that is more important to our industry than ever and can really help show the way forward. 
    We talk about how it came about, the way in which the programme has had to change due to the lockdown and also what the sports industry can (and should) be doing better to make the current momentum doesn't get lost. 
    So much to get through and it’s such a big topic! So let me know what you think and any feedback on what we discuss either on Twitter or LinkedIn.

    THE NEW NORMAL - James Dickens, VP Editorial @ Motorsport Network

    THE NEW NORMAL - James Dickens, VP Editorial @ Motorsport Network

    "The New Normal" is a new series that moves the conversation on from lockdown and the crisis we've had to face over the last few months. 

    Now with sport back on our screens and restrictions starting to be lifted, what will the 'new normal' look like, and how are we going to have to adapt going forward?

    In the first of this series I chat to James Dickens. James joined Motorsport Network - owners of Autosport, Motorsport.com and has many other companies under its umbrella encompassing all elements of motorsport. 

    Before that James was Head of Sport at Yahoo UK and then Global Editor-in-Chief at Goal.com - so a great person to speak about sport generally and the publishing side of the business.
