    Former General Election candidate Duncan Miller, late of the "Venky's Out" party, attended last week's Fan Consultation Evening at Ewood and was won over by Steve Waggott & Tony Mowbray.
    In conversation with Ian Herbert, Duncan shares what was discussed, how it has impacted his thought process, his rationale & provides optimism for next season.

    In a packed pod hosted by Linz Lewis, Jane Purdon CEO of Women In Football discusses the challenges faced by women working in the game and an insight into the #WhatIf campaign recently nominated for a BT Sport Diversity and Inclusion Award.
    Part 2 features the #GirlSquad of Jen, Millie, Hollie and Lucy talking all things Rovers. What went wrong in Feb? How do you solve a problem like Breo?...and which former Rovers player would you like to see back at the club? The girls also share with you their female supporting heroes.
    In Part 3, a light is shone on our incredibly successful Rovers ladies. We chat to manager Gemma Donnelly, who tells us just how good her team really is and gives us an insight into what promotion could mean for the ladies. The Venkys even get a mention!
    In our final part the panel discuss their experiences as female football fans and discuss the current furore around female commentators and analysts.
    Thanks to all those who contributed to a pod made with love, mischief and a whole heap of girl power. Happy International Women’s Day !

    The BRFCS pod squad meets up & records in person for the first time ever. A rendezvous in Sheffield ahead of the game against the Blades (perhaps just as well as events unfolded) providing an opportunity to review 2018's highs & lows, "Defend the Indefensible" and play "Name That Rover".
    Many thanks to Mike Delap, Jen Bellamy, Linz Lewis, Scott Sumner, Michael Taylor, Matt Grimshaw (young apprentice podcaster), Stuart Grimshaw & Louis G for their contributions. Blame Ian Herbert for the editing.

    After the behind the scenes at Brockhall episode, the pod reverts to er "normal service" with a review of on-field October, discussions of tactics, formations, attendances, handling disappointment and play off memories from the 80's.
    Panelists Jen Bellamy, Linz Lewis, Mike Delap, Michael Taylor are joined by new "boy" Ian Futter, which means for once host Ian Herbert isn't the oldest contributor.
    Special mention to Bill Arthur for another of his wonderful narrations from Canada; this time covering off play off misfortune in the 1980's and final redemption in 1992.

    In this historic 100th episode, BRFCS is invited through the hallowed portals of the Rovers Senior training Centre at Brockhall. We share what we can in this landmark podcast. Big thanks to Ryan Grant & all at BRFC of course for offering us this amazing opportunity.
    I'm not sure how we improve on this so if it's the last ever episode, it's been great....*
     
    *only joking, 101 is already scheduled...
     
    We hope you enjoy this window into our favourite club.

    Just to keep you on your toes our September review is coming out before the end of September due to longstanding diary clashes next week...fear not, there's still much to consider and in this episode a few interesting tales emerge from our panelists Jen Bellamy, Kamy & Michael Taylor. 
    Host Ian Herbert shares possibly the single most underwhelming anecdote about Tim Sherwood in history...not even  a gilet in sight although there's quite a revelation about a former Man Utd chairman which came out of left field.

    In a packed episode hosted by Ian Herbert, the panel of Jen Bellamy, Linz Lewis & Michael Taylor, reviews August, both on & off the field including the transfer windows, speculates wildly about the value of Bradley Dack & we have three (count 'em) guests -
    Bill Arthur - takes us back to the 50's & 60's & his boyhood memories of supporting Rovers
    Ian Futter - shares his Essex heritage & shares what it's like supporting Rovers from North Wales
    Bruce Wilkinson - a regular contributor to When Saturday Comes magazine shares his love of Rovers
    Ideal listening for the journey down to Bristol...please tell all your Rovers-supporting pals and spread the word !
    If anyone would like to contribute a piece to a future episode along the lines of those from Bill & Ian, please let us know on this thread, via PM or on the @brfcsdotcom Twitter feed.
    Thanks again to all the contributors for giving up their time...hope you enjoy !

    A new season, a new series of podcasts, new theme music, a new panelist...you can't say we're not trying ?
    A cast of thousands on this episode all wanting to have their say & predict the Rovers likely finishing position upon our return to the Championship. Listen right to the end as the last 2 guests have their own section. 
    Your host Ian Herbert tries to keep order as Josh Boswell, Kamy, Mike Delap, Michael Taylor (the Marple Leaf), Linz Lewis, Jen Bellamy (new signing) & guests Scott Sumner & Tom Schofield are fuelled with pre-season bonhomie.
    Massive thanks to Joe Bamford (Biz) & his band "The Symmetry" for providing us with our own theme music for this season. We'll hopefully hear more from Joe & the band as the season progresses...
    Listen out for some acronym related high jinks as one panelist mixes up the EDS at Man City with the EDL...both have some right-wingers...but...well you know...
    Hope you enjoy & if anyone fancies contributing a first or favourite Rovers memory, or a Revisionist Rovers item for a future episode, that would be great.
