Well hosted by the superb Marcus and the knowledge of mr Wilson on all things European football 1st class. Add in the subject matter expert on the game bringing energy and a touch of geekiness is brilliant. Could do with a Forest Game at some point hint hint

A wonderful and erudite display of football intellect in print or audio. I look forward to the Greatest Matches to return.

The Blizzard is unquestionably some of the finest — if not THE finest — writing about football available today. The care and craft that goes into each issue is extraordinary, and now to have these articles available in podcast format is truly a wonderful gift. Both the selection of readings and...Read full review »

This podcast used to be perfect - I am a fan of and loyal subscriber to The Blizzard. The new narrators speak far too fast, and the audio quality is abysmal. I have the volume turned up to maximum walking on a fairly quiet street and can barely hear it. Get better microphones or mix the sound...Read full review »

Insightful and well told

The content is good but the narrator’s voice is always too low. Can barely hear it on my iPad mini speakers when most other podcasts sound fine.

I hate to say it, but I had to give up after the new guy took over around the start of 2019 (or they changed something in production)

Love the Blizzard! Best in-depth resource for all things football! ❤️⚽️
Holliwoodinc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/19
If you love football you'll love this. Start with the "Bicycle Thief" episode and I wager that you will listen to all of them afterwards. As a German native: very clear and understandable English. Great!Read full review »

I really do enjoy The Blizzard podcast. Great to hear some of the past stories repurposed from the print publication. I enjoyed the collaboration between The Blizzard and By Association. It added another dimension to the storytelling of football stories.
AODaveLee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/17
Each episode is a gem. Long form, thoughtful pieces. Worthy of both your attention and support.
Olunclegearhead via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/04/17
I always look forward to the random slice of football writing that is presented so well in this podcast. Always insightful even on topics I think I know well.

Whether your a fan of football/soccer, sports generally or just good story telling and writing, you should be listening to this podcast.

Really terrific listening , informative and provocative footie topics
Shane O'Toole via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/10/17
A great listen anytime, perfect for driving home after work, especially when needing contact with football while avoiding spoiling scores from matches played, recorded, and unviewed. Two recent pod readings reaffirm Ecclesiastical truths regarding the absence of new things under the sun (but,...Read full review »

Downloaded the podcast to listen to what I thought would be intelligent conversation about football while I did data cleaning work for my research on football. 3 minutes into it and I heard enough complaining about Trump that I had to check and make sure I downloade the right podcast. ...Read full review »

I only came across 'The Blizzard' in the past few weeks and figured I would try the podcasts as an intro to the publications. I love these episodes, they are perfect for the trips to and from work (45-60 minutes for me). They are insightful and well thought out. I find a lot of media...Read full review »

No other publication has articles near as interest as The Blizzard. Thanks to all who contribute.
Sjmcgrath via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/19/16
Love the Blizzard on my iPad but I actually prefer the podcasts as I drive a lot. My only wish is that everything they do would be on the podcast. Best sports writing I have ever seen. Love it.

Excerpts from back issues of the magazine, always a fascinating listen.
Montigol via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/30/16
A wonderful, wide lens look at the beautiful game. Always thought provoking, filled with insight and well executed. A supreme pleasure of a podcast.
jnrknight via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/23/16
The articles are interesting and excellently-written. Very well produced. Highly engaging.
Strictly Come Daniel via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/20/16
Brilliantly researched articles, brilliantly delivered. Showcasing perfectly the old idiom that the best thing about football is that it's not really about football.Read full review »

Get this to get a taste of the full blizzard. Then buy the blizzard.

Amazing stories delivered weekly. Highly recommend this to football supporters, high-quality storytelling that reaches back into football lore and the contemporary economics, contradictions, and realities of today's game.Read full review »

Hello The Blizzard Team The article selection for the podcast is amazing. I believe you are working on the Q&As podcasts the sound is not as good.

Insightful and always interesting
PearsonIn via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/25/16
The Blizzard podcasts covers football like no one else. Should be top of your list if you're after an interesting, humorous, intelligent and interesting view of the game. Highly recommended and a worthy companion to The Blizzard Quarterly!
WalkOn_77 via Stitcher · 05/13/16
If you feel that football is a love not just for the 90 minutes, not just for the goals and assists, but for the narrative behind the game, the stories behind the men that played the game, ran the game and football's shadow on everything from politics to daily life, this is the podcast for...Read full review »

Love listening to the Guardian Football Weekly and now the Blizzard too.
Makoto16 via Stitcher · 05/08/16
The podcast involves the pieces written in the Blizzard magazine being converted into short audio-articles if you will. The quality of the writing is top notch, and thus the quality of the pieces covered in the podcast is great. Very diverse number of topics in the world of the beautiful game...Read full review »

Some of the stories they unearth and discuss are really interesting. Always great guests/writers
claresylfc via Stitcher · 05/07/16
This podcast is always is thoughtful, in-depth and original - traits that are sadly lacking in a lot of its competitors output. A must for anyone looking for a new kind of football coverage! Can't recommend enough.

Dear Floating Brain in a Jar, long may you continue to deliver the Blizzard. Been there since the start of the mag and easily the best there is out there - and pay what you like!

Nick the pick with an R in it via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/06/16
With its diverse range of articles on all aspects of the beautiful game, The Blizzard has established itself as the finest football publication around. And now it has a podcast to match. The live Q&A episodes are particular highlights.
David_Coleman via Stitcher · 05/05/16
Very straightforward. No show more informative. The exact opposite of TalkSport.
modchip90 via Stitcher · 05/05/16
a great podcast...funny, clever and insightful
Vindictus13 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/05/16
Living in the US it's hard to find in-depth and intelligent analysis of football. I had the luck of discovering 'The Blizzard' and after reading the sample copy I got hooked. Keep it up!
mtorresg2 via Stitcher · 05/05/16
A great podcast based on a fine collection of material published on behalf of football. Not only for british listeners but covering relevant issues of european and global football alike.
Dilettantismus via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/05/16
The content of the magazine and show are always spot on! Well done
BretDR via Stitcher · 05/05/16
The articles are always an enjoyable listen, but the live shows are what make this a 5* podcast....just wish they did more!
