Since the start of the decade the rise of Digital media in sport has grown to heights that no-one expected.
Whilst professional outlets try to out-do each other in creating viral tweets and ‘announce’ signings, other folks have been giving it a go for a while longer.
With more focus on Wolves since we became incredibly richer that yaw, there is a plethora of Wolves coverage you can find online to satisfy your Molineux inch between match days.
Some of which, you may not have realised, has been going on for years, right under your noses.
Let us share with you some of the blogs and pods you can sink your invisible coding into.
That’s right, here at Fancast, we are telling you where else to go…
Old Gold Club
Well we might as well start with the clubs’ official podcast.
Rather than go down the route of current affairs, Wolves have taken a different approach with their podcast adventure with ‘Old Gold Club’.
Despite being hosted by the club, players are given the opportunity to freely express their views on their time at Wolves, whether positive or negative, which is refreshing to hear.
You can listen to the Old Gold Club here.
The Molineux View
The podcast brings together two of the titans of Wolves personalities to cover all the latest goings on down Waterloo Road, and follows the Athletic’s theme of providing the story behind the story at Molineux.
Not subscribed to the Athletic? No problem. There’s no paywall and it’s free to to download.
Let’s be honest. We’ll all be listening to this.

Express and Star Wolves Podcast
The E&S have their own Wolves podcast and has had a bit of a rota change following the departure of Tim Spiers to ‘The Athletic’.
Nathan Judah told us how the idea of doing a podcast came about:
“Following on from the success of the E&S football podcast, it was clearly evident that. Wolves was dominating content. It was an easy decision to evolve into the E&S Wolves podcast. Offering an insiders look into the club, together with a variety of guests and humorous ‘bantz,’ the format continues to go from strength to strength.”

The 77 Club
Whilst Fancast has been kicking it alone in the podcast club since 07′, we’re not the only fan podcast out there.
‘The 77 Club’ is another Wolves fan podcast which talks the ups and downs of following Wolves.
Sam Cook, who is behind the podcast, told us how they got started :
“Whenever we turn on 5 Live or Talk Sport, all we get is how great Harry Kane is, something about Wayne Rooney or a Liverpool fan who’s certain ‘this is their year’.
We sat back and thought – Wolves fans deserve better than this.
So we did a bit of research, looked at what we could include in terms of Manager/Player interviews etc.
The logistics of actually putting a podcast together (Can. Of. Worms) and came up with a plan of what we’d want to listen to on-demand.
It’s going OK. The learning curve has been huge, we’ll get better the more episodes we do – we’re really enjoying it.”

Created by Jason Guy, the Wolf Whistle podcast celebrates Wolves legends with in depth one on one interviews with former greats.
Featuring the likes of Jody Craddock, Simon Osborn, Paul Jones and more, the Wolf Whistle is a great podcast to hear stories directly from your favourite past players and to learn more about their impact in the Old Gold shirt.

They have created a dedicated community of fans who analyse and discuss the latest goings on at Molineux.
Thomas explains the origins of Wolves Blog:
“I started Wolves Blog because nobody else was doing it. There were forums like Molineux Mix and the BBC 606 boards were still going strong back then, but there wasn’t really what I’d call an ‘editorial’ product driven by supporters.
By coincidence Ben had just created his own blog, so I quickly signed him up to write for Wolves Blog.
We bounced off each other, some mates started joining in and from there a little community began to form.
We’re now closing in on 10 years. Although I’m the guy who keeps it going, I credit Ben for pushing the envelope and defining much of the blog’s style.”

Musings From Molineux
Fancast regular Gulraj Kular has been inscribing his thoughts on Wolves for many months now.
The blog takes an analytical and tactical look at life at Wolves and is becoming popular amongst fans after every read.
Gully talks about how his blog came about:
“Blogging has always been a passion of mine and I’ve always enjoyed articulating my thoughts on the sport and team I love.
Through a combination of extra time and enthusiasm I’ve been able to build Musings from Molineux up and offer what I feel as an alternative to anything that’s out there.
Wolves fans are based all over the world and it’s great to be able to offer some thoughts and opinions from closer to home.”

It’s not just blogs and podcasts that dominate the digital airwaves within the Wolves community.
‘Talking Wolves’ provides fan reactions post game, classic YouTube style ‘list’ videos and much more.

Also part of the Talking Wolves crew, Finnerz provides a fan view of the game from the stands home and away.
It’s got the highs of last minute goals, to the lows of… well… last minute goals and both are shared on Twitter to the joys and grumble of fans from Wolves or other clubs.
He’s got a ‘z’ at the end of his name, so that’s enough of a sale to check out his content.

If Reddit is your thing (you know that AMA threads are pretty good) then there is a growing Reddit place for Wolves fans to share the latest news and memes to enjoy.
It’s right here.
