This is Martin’s chat with James Pearce, the brilliantly connected Liverpool writer for The Athletic. A lot of James’ writing makes up our latest book, At the End of the Storm, which also featured in last week’s episode – and is released today (October 15).
The book is a collection of pieces from The Athletic telling the story of Liverpool’s historic title triumph, and James is the star of the show.
You’re going to hear a little bit about James’ background and how his years at the Liverpool Echo primed him for taking his coverage of the club to a new level when he joined The Athletic in the summer of 2019. You’ll also hear him break down a piece he wrote after Liverpool’s Super Cup win over Chelsea in August. This is a brilliant episode with a writer at the peak of his power. Enjoy
