THE IN SQUASH PODCAST - THE STORY SO FAR

In this free article from Squash Player 2020 Issue 2, we introduce our new columnist Gerry Gibson, aka ‘The Pod Father’. He gives us a peek behind the scenes of his weekly chats with the game’s greatest characters as host of the popular In Squash podcast.

Upon becoming an avid podcast listener several years ago I was excited to find a few squash podcasts: Squash Radio had some excellent episodes and I also stumbled upon James Zug’s excellent Behind The Glass. Before I knew it though I’d ploughed through everything, with nothing new on the horizon. It occurred to me that I had the passion, background and knowledge to fill the void. I felt it would require a weekly commitment and a desire to develop in the podcast game. The rest is history - 150 episodes and counting.

So, episode one, who would my first guest be? I had a very good idea from the get-go: Neil Harvey. Neil, former coach of the great Peter Nicol, is now based near my hometown of Halifax, Canada and has been coach to my good friend and former teammate Matt Bishop. I couldn’t have asked for a better first guest, being a huge fan of Nicol and his great rival of the late 90s and early 2000s, Jonathon Power.

Neil allowed the podcast to hit the ground running by injecting much needed credibility. My follow-up episodes piggy-backed off episode one nicely, so I owe a lot to Neil for stepping up.
Many people have asked, who has been your favourite guest? What is the best episode? Honestly, it’s impossible to choose one or two; although I’d say there have been landmark episodes.
