Welcome to the Wrexham AFC podcast that no one asked for and probably no on wants. What's that? There's already podcasts out the wazoo based on Wrexham AFC? Perfect. Less pressure for me to be awesome when you can go and listen to the likes of Nathan Salt & Rich Fay over at Rob. Ryan. Red. Or enjoy the hilarity of Wrexham for Wankers, or the admirable passion from Fearless in Devotion.
I listen to all of these and more... and you should too if you're as obsessed with Wrexham as I am. My podcast will bring a different perspective. I am a filmmaker and obviously a Texan. I will dive deep into the filmmaking process of "Welcome to Wrexham" since, coincidentally, I specialize in documentaries as well. While I will absolutely cover the team and fixtures in episodes, I'll have entire episodes devoted to the docuseries.
I became enthralled with Wrexham from day one of the documentary series. I'd been searching for a team for literally decades, mostly based off of American players who played for EPL teams. But as soon as those players would leave their respective teams, my love for that team would fade.
I love story. Story is EVERYTHING. Story is humanity. We are entertained and moved and changed by stories. I was changed by "Welcome to Wrexham." My team was presented before me in the form of 18 TV episodes that ran the gauntlet from thrilling to intriguing to flat out depressing. I fell in love with everyone on the show and subsequently the team. I am all in on Wrexham AFC. I have shirts, jerseys, scarves... my wardrobe has literally changed colors from muted blues, greens, and grays to bright-ass Reds! I feel pretty dang good about it.
I won't always have a long post to go along with my episodes, but for this first one, I thought it was necessary. So I hope you enjoy my ramblings, rants, and raves!
