Hull City Podcast Tigers Tigers Blah Blah Blah – often referred to as “Tigers Blah” for short – has recently clocked up 10,000 lifetime listens after it started 13 months ago back in the first lockdown.
The Podcast was started by Luke Flanagan and Richard Walker in April 2020 to keep Hull City fans entertained during the lack of sport in the pandemic and to plug the void left by much loved fanzine and podcast Amber Nectar after their creators called time in May 2019.
In the months following the initial launch, Luke and Rich interviewed various ex-players about their experiences with the Tigers, including Lawrie Dudfield, Rodney Rowe, Craig Fagan and Caleb Folan to name just a few. Baz Cooper from the Hull Daily Mail and Andy Dalton from Amber Nectar also made guest appearances this season.
“Tigers Blah” is now the largest followed Hull City podcast and has listeners in almost 50 different countries – including Australia, Saudi Arabia, Colombia and even Singapore as Tigers fans around the world download episodes most weeks.
“Both Rich and I are incredibly proud of the work we have done so far in providing hopefully a mostly light hearted and entertaining look back at City’s progress this season,” said co-creator and editor Luke Flanagan.
“We started to just chat about City as we missed live football at the start of the pandemic, but the podcast grew so quickly it’s amazing to think that we’ve passed 50 episodes, over 10,000 listens and listeners in almost 50 different countries.
“Both Rich and I are extremely thankful for all those who have listened and continue to do so,” he added. “Now the season is over, we are going to try something different and do an irreverent look at Euro 2020 to document the England team in their quest for International Honours once again. We look forward to a summer full of football and to next season when City are back in the Championship!”
