Thank you for choosing to listen to our new ‘The Villa View Podcast’ – it’s something we’ve been asked to do for a long time, even going back to the early days of our YouTube channel. “Can you make an audio show so I can listen to it on the way to work” is an example of a direct message or email we got on a number of occasions.

We were always open to the idea of a podcast show but were wary that there wasn’t an big enough audience for it to justify the time it takes to produce. We also wanted to be sure we could do it justice, as with every project we take on. 

We now feel we’ve discovered a format that works for us well, and have access to a brilliant audio booth to record our show in. Dan Bardell is hosting the show will fellow Villan, and friend of The Villa View – Tom Julian.

As you may know, Tom is a writer for us here on and also played at our match at Villa Park in September last year. Don’t fret however, Tom is not replacing Matt Lynch in any way, shape or form. It’s purely a location issue. Dan Rolinson is in Birmingham, Dan Bardell in London, and Matt in Nottingham – it’s impossible for the three of us to meet in a studio on a regular basis to film a show. 

In future episodes, Matt Lynch will be involved. Either via Skype to chat with Dan, or maybe even in the studio – if it’s a special occasion.

We hope that you enjoy the show, and we’d love to hear your feedback, as always. Whether it be you’re listening to this podcast from day one or in 6 months time, your feedback means a lot. So feel free to leave a comment to any of our social media channels, on YouTube, SoundCloud or even leave a review on iTunes.

Get involved with the show!
