About the Hosts

John Aspinall

Producer, Host

Producer & presenter on the Seasiders Podcast.

"Been an avid 'Pool fan since my Dad first took me on the Kop and was mesmerised by the Man City fans chucking bits of the decaying stadium over the fence towards us in an FA Cup tie in 1984!"

Nick Smith

Presenter

Presenter and been on the pod since the very early days of passing a single mic around in John's box room! Often referred to as the "voice of reason" on the show. And in his own, dulcet tones:

" Still vividly remember my first game (around 1980) in the East Paddock, when I nearly choked on a Spangle (forgot to take the cellophane off) Developed a habit of missing goals, usually due to being in the bar. Love a Jolly Boys Outing."

Tim Fielding

Presenter, Wordsmith

Our elder statesman and resident wordsmith. Tim originally joined the team to provide legal analysis during 'The Litigation Years' and we haven't be able to get rid of him since! Known perhaps best for the repeated use of the phase "those of a certain vintage", and has a pathological dislike of the trend towards multiple substitutions. And in the words of the great man:

"I started following the Pool in 1978 after being captivated by a classic 0-0 draw v Plymouth Argyle. Occasionally I also make a valid point about the game."

Tom Mayne

Presenter

The newest member of our team and co-presents the Friday Night Preview show with Sam. Tom also hosts "The Third Tier" podcast which is a show dedicated to all things League One.

Sam Fielding

Host, Commentator

Son of Tim, Sam, runs the Friday Night Preview show along with Tom and Sean and has all sorts of other media jobs and is also a photograper and jamily got into Bloomfied Road during lockdown to take pictures!

Matt Smith

Presenter, Writer

Matt is another "old skool" presenter and joined the pod in it's early days not long after Nick. And in his own words:

"Hooked after watching ‘Pool lose a classic 3-2 home defeat to Tranmere on Boxing Day 1983. Obviously a lucky charm as promotion followed the next season! Loves an away day with the lads and can’t wait for these to start again!"

Matt 'Mitch' Jones

Panelist & Blogger

Matt is the brains behind the BFC blog, "Mitch Cook's Left Foot" and has recently joined the Seasiders Podcast team as a panelist and presenter. Not as psychotic as he looks in his photo!
