Released for download on Friday night after being pre-recorded for Christmas over mulled wine and mince pies at the Heaton Hops in south Manchester on Tuesday, host Ben Hughes is joined on December's hour long show by BBC Manchester's Ian Burke, the Non League Show's Swampy and the EVO-STIK League's social media officer James Heyes.
Festively entitled "Ho Ho Ho...", the new monthly podcast kicks off with a Christmas debate on the state of play in all three divisions and ahead to 2018 as the Northern Premier League's 68 clubs continue to celebrate the competition's historic 50th anniversary season. Hughes and his trio of regulars also run the rule over the big encounters to come over the holiday period and ahead to January's challenge for the EVO-STIK League quartet flying the flag in the Buildbase FA Trophy.
The EVO-STIK NPL Show's hit stable of weekly and monthly podcasts returned in August for the 2017-18 campaign to build on their best ever listening figures last term and an end of season surge following a series of special live broadcasts from the promotion play-offs.
Still available on iTunes as well as Audioboom and produced as always by the award-winning team at FCUM Radio, the podcasts are being sponsored for the fourth season running by the NPL's title sponsors EVO-STIK. Since last season, they have also been available via their own button on the right hand side of the home page of the league's official website.
