SPOTIFY ORIGINAL SERIES: 'GIANT'
We were approached by Spotify to create a six-part audio documentary series that was different to all other football podcasts currently on the market. This spring, it won gold in the Narrative / Documentary category and silver in the Sport category at the NYF Radio Awards.
It’s called GIANT and the aim was to travel as far as necessary to take audio football docs to the next level. We’ve been to Lagos and LA, New York and Norway, as well as the deep souths of Holland, America, and London.
At each and every turn, we spoke to the people that were there to bring these football stories that matter to life. We’ve asked people to remind us about the best, and worst, times of their lives to create a six part series that drills deep into some of the most impressive, important, and improbable happenings of the last 30 years.
From horse farms in Alabama to football clubs near the arctic circle, we’ve been consistently blown away by what people have told us. We’ve danced on terraces, legged it through customs, sang to the rafters and got continuously lost. Hopelessly, endlessly, lost. In cities and in towns, in emotions and memories.
The critical reception has been incredible, with a glowing review in The Observer and endless positivity on social. If you haven’t listened yet, and you’re into rivalry, rebirth, and the original Ronaldo, then you’re in for a treat.
