About us

Now enjoying its 11th season, the Sound of Football is one of the longest-running, independent football podcasts.

So what can you expect when you listen to an episode of our podcast? Well, if you're looking for transfer rumours, Ballon D'Or speculation and post-match analysis, to be honest you'll be better served going elsewhere. But if you're looking for something that tries to make sense of the circus that is the modern world of football, then sit back and enjoy.

From VAR to club co-efficients, from non-league to the Champions League, from TV rights to the modern fan experience, we pretty much discuss anything to do with the beautiful game. Even when it's not at its most beautiful. Especially when it's not at its most beautiful. Add to that our famous fake draws and our annual advent calendar Christmas specials.

In addition to the podcast, we also have a weekly newsletter called the Weekend Boxset. Every week we preview seven games from all over the world for you to binge watch across the weekend. It's another free service from us to you. Just register your email and you'll get it in your inbox every Friday.

You can listen to any of ours episodes for FREE - there isn't even any ads on them. They're all available on this website but if you want to listen regularly you'll be better off subscribing with Apple podcasts, Google podcasts or through your podcatcher of choice.

These are the regular voices you'll hear on the podcast:

Terry Duffelen

A life-long Crystal Palace fan but since a trip to Cologne in 2004 Terry has fallen in love with German club football, in particular Borussia Dortmund. Terry has written about football for over 15 years and was the creator of the football satire website The Onion Bag. You can follow him on Twitter, @terryduffelen.

Graham Sibley

The host and producer of the podcast, Graham is an Arsenal fan. You can follow him on Twitter on @grahamsibley. Arsenal fans and football history buffs may also be interested in his other account @ChapmansArsenal - a real-time twitter account tracing events from 84 years ago including score alerts, match reports and club news of the day. He also creates the artwork for the site.

Jan Bilton

Joining the podcast in 2012, Jan is a Sunderland fan and has been a contributor to their fanzine A Love Supreme. You can follow him on Twitter on @janbilton. Never shy of a forthright opinion, Jan's outlook on the game may have been shaped by a boyhood encounter with his then hero Marco Gabbiadini...

Our non-football podcasts

Believe it or not Graham and Terry do talk about other things...

The Oddjob Pod

Hosted by Gary Andrews, Graham and Terry discuss all things James Bond.

Of course some football inevitably slips in, like when they played a tournament to find the best of the 24 Bond films, in the format of the 1982 World Cup in Spain.

Whom Pods Destroy

Terry and Graham are joined by Derek Mantle to discuss the classic Star Trek series of the 1960s.

Every fortnight they look at how the episodes have stood the test of time. We also talk about the wider influence of the creative minds involved, in comics, film and books.
