There are many Celtic podcasts available these days, but few are as unique as the newly launched (The) Patriot Game.
Started by three friends from Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin respectively, The Patriot Game is a Celtic podcast with a difference. It incorporates post match analysis and discussion around current events at the club, as well as specific interviews on topics ranging from specifically: Irish Republicanism, Left Wing agitation, Music, Football (ex-Celtic players), Internationalism, and like-minded clubs such as St Pauli etc. In short, the podcast is very varied and different from the status quo.
The Patriot Game podcast began last week and opened with an episode that reviewed the recent 6-0 victory over Livingston, cast an eye towards the upcoming Scottish Cup clash against theRangers and discussed whether or not Moi Elyounoussi should be signed on a permanent basis.
After a great opening show, The Patriot Game recorded its first guest episode last night, when The Celtic Star’s own Liam Kelly was invited to talk to the Bhoys. Liam discussed the stories of Celtic from the founding fathers to the present day, encompassing political, cultural and charitable dimensions of the club and how they have evolved over time. Naturally, the chat also touches on aspects of Irish history from tenants being evicted in famine time to the modern day pursuit of Irish unity through the provisions of the Good Friday Agreement.
Tremendous episode just recorded with @cfcliamk96 Very enjoyable & insightful on all things Celtic, well worth a listen. Available tomorrow. Follow @PatriotGame1888 🎙 You can listen to podcasts on : Spotify, Soundcloud & Apple Podcasts.
Stay tuned for some huge interviews! 🍀

Woven into the conversation is Liam’s brief insight into playing football under Eddie Howe, the man heavily linked with the Celtic job at present, as a Bournemouth youth player; whilst predictions for the weekend’s Glasgow Derby are discussed, before the show concludes by talking about Liam’s (four) Celtic books – one of which is of course The Celtic Star’s very own Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys publication (co-authored by Matt Corr and David Potter).
We recommend giving the latest episode a listen and giving the Bhoys at The Patriot Game a follow on Twitter. The podcast has some cracking plans for the future, including some fantastic guests lined up. Indeed, Podgie from Shebeen is next on the show.
