The Halcyon Podcast Episode 16 (Part 1) - Michael Calvin

Adam and Rob are joined by multi-award-winning author and journalist Michael Calvin for a wide-ranging and actually very moving chat about... well, everything really.

In this first part, Mike talks to us about his earliest memories of football, being in the privileged position of ballboy at Vicarage Road in his formative years and 4am starts to queue for FA Cup Fourth Round replay tickets (ask your dad, kids) at the ground.

We also cover the fundamental nature of being a football fan in light of some of Mike's experiences researching Whose Game is it Anyway and the documentary film 'Ours', and make ourselves sound very old by asking if fans are still being created by the same process we identify so heavily with.
