Episode 17 of Between the Stripes LOI podcast smashes listenership record!

Billed as Between the Stripes LOI podcasts biggest show ever, episode 17 certainly lived up to the hype as the #DecisionDay special smashed the shows listener-ship record. Over 800 people have so far tuned in to episode 17 which saw guests from all three sides in relegation pearl on the final day of the season appear.

Ger O’Brien (St.Pat’s assistant), Shane Morrison (Sligo fan) and Julian Canny (Galway fan) were all on hand to put forward their claims for survival while Chris Bennion (Drogheda goalkeeping coach) and Aidan Campbell (Finn Harps marketing and commercial director) also joined hosts Burke & Brier to discuss the impact relegation is likely to have at their respective clubs.

There was plenty of transfer stories to run the rule over, while the latest goings on at the FAI and Bray Wanderers respectively were strongly debated by the Longford duo.

With episode 18 being the final regular show of the year (there’s an Xmas special on the way folks) episode 17’s incredible figures could very well be instantly surpassed with what can only be described as a league winning line-up in the works. Keep an eye on Between the Stripes social media pages for details on the final show of the season which as ever will be uploaded at approximately 10PM on Wednesday via Audioboom, Itunes, Mixcloud, Pocketcasts and Podcast Republic.
