SECOND CAPTAINS have unveiled major plans to change their model and expand with the introduction of a paywall.
The team — made up of Eoin McDevitt, Ken Early, Ciaran Murphy, Mark Horgan and Simon Hick — have been producing Ireland’s most popular online sports shows since departing Newstalk’s Off The Ball and linking up with The Irish Times in 2013.
However, it was today announced they are cutting ties with their main partner and launching The Second Captains World Service, “a member-led, completely independent online station which gives you the chance to listen to all your favourite Second Captains podcasts everyday of the week”, from next Monday, 13 February.
The two free shows on Monday will remain, but in place of Thursday’s double bill, they will instead put out one daily podcast between Tuesday and Friday.
Regular guest Richie Sadlier is set to present one of the new programmes, while they have promised to announce further additions.
The extra podcasts will come at a small cost as there is a monthly subscription fee of €5 to listen on secondcaptains.com. All the details are in today’s show (embedded above).
