The Wise Men Say Podcast is an independent podcast all about Sunderland AFC.
We started life way back in March 2013 as a once-weekly chat about Sunderland AFC tied to the Salut Sunderland! blog site.
Hundreds of episodes, relegations, managerial changes, five (and counting) trips to Wembley later, the podcast, now fully independent has grown to three shows a week – The Monday Show, Preview Show and the Reaction Show – with a team of presenters and contributors discussing all of the talking points on one club’s journey down, and back up, the Football League pyramid.
We’ve also hosted several live shows in pubs and breweries up and down the country, and have produced special episodes where the team look back on previous seasons, talk about films and interview some of the club’s legends.
And, for home matches, you can catch us in The Peacock where we host a talk-in with a former Sunderland player.
In 2021 we began publishing opinion pieces on wisemensay.co.uk with a team of writers producing a wide range of features and informative articles.
And, in 2021, the Wise Men Say Podcast was nominated Club Podcast of the Year at the 2021 Football Supporters Association Awards.
In 2022, Wise Men Say reached 2million downloads through its host platform Acast.
