Football Ramble rewind back to their First Words


Getting started. It’s the toughest part of any creative project, and starting a podcast is no different. How do I do this? Will I be any good? What if no one listens? What if I fail?

But everybody needs to start from exactly the same place: episode one. Every podcast needs to have its first words. That goes for all of your favorite podcasters, too — even if now they’re effortless audio storytellers.

So we’ve launched First Words, a video series where Acast takes podcasters from around the Acast Creator Network on a trip down memory lane. We scroll back to the start of their feed and press play on the very first episode, challenging them to remember the first words they spoke. Expect to hear revealing stories of humble beginnings, how they’ve grown as podcasters, and advice for future podcast superstars.

In this episode of First Words, Acast invites Luke Moore and Kate Mason, hosts of the Football Ramble podcast, to rewind back to their First Words.

Football Ramble is a must-listen for any discerning fan that enjoys the more entertaining side of the world’s favorite sport. From the sublime to the ridiculous, the bust-ups to the cock-ups, the Premier League to the Copa Libertadores.

Watch the full episode here, where Luke reacts to his first words on the podcast way back in 2007, and reflects on how things have — and perhaps haven’t — changed. Kate discloses what it was like to become a host of Football Ramble as a fan of the show already, and they both share their tips for new podcasters.
