Two Woods Four Quarters: A Harlequins Podcast

  • Will Wood

In January 2021, amidst the coronavirus pandemic, my cousin and I decided to ditch the WhatsApp back and forth for recorded discussions on our beloved rugby team, Harlequins. As a fan podcast for the club, it was incredibly well received by supporters in a time where the desire to consume Harlequins related content was incredibly high, as covid restrictions meant people were forced to remain indoors and prevented fans from attending match days. We wanted to offer an outlet and form of escapsim for the club's supporters, whilst also weighing in with our opinions in what was a chaotic period for the club with Head Coach, Paul Gustard, departing the club and an upturn in form delivering plenty of excitement. We've since had guests including; stadium announcers, men's players, women's players and even we even collaborated with opposition club podcasts. In addition to recording the podcasts, I have also produced and edited them for YouTube purposes, as well as enhancing our fast-growing social media accounts which have achieved very strong engagement thus far.
