Originating as a podcast in 2017, A Celtic State of Mind aims to present insightful discussion around the culture of Celtic Football Club, the city of Glasgow, and fans of the reigning double-treble-winning Scottish champions.
ACSOM aims to provide Celtic fans with 100% bespoke content, produced to a standard to equal mainstream media production. Author Paul John Dykes and poet Kevin Graham host the show, which includes interviews with guests from the world of sport, music, film, art, broadcasting, comedy, literature and politics.
A Celtic State of Mind originated as a podcast in June 2017 – and in its first year, the show went on to be named as the UK’s Best Football Podcast at the prestigious 2018 Football Blogging Awards. The development of ACSOM has seen the brand grow to encompass its own website platform, which will host numerous other outlets such as live events, video content, features and articles, publishing, and merchandise.
“We chose to partner with FansBet as we believe in the concept of giving back to fan initiatives,” explains Paul John Dykes. “ACSOM aims to support other Celtic-related groups as we grow the brand in the coming years.”
