The Story

Sophie, Paz and Beery are three friends and coworkers. Sophie and Paz live Stateside while their Manchester pal, Beery, is across the pond in England. The trio started the Muddy Boots podcast for the 2020/21 EPL season and since then it has evolved in so much more than a podcast, introducing new characters, guests and features. They all live and breathe soccer so during the challenges of 2020 they got together (virtually) with other friends for soccer trivia nights! The trivia nights soon evolved into general soccer chatter and debates. To the amusement of other attendees, these three stole the show and the trivia nights became the Muddy Boots show! The Muddy Boots show is brought to you on most of your podcast platforms, now as The Muddy Boots podcast! We know you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!

Meet The Hosts

This talented trio come to us from the North of England. Controversially, only one of them support their local team but they’re equally as passionate about their clubs!

Meet Muddy Boots host, Sophie Dewar, from Hull, England but a lifelong Gooner (that’s an Arsenal fan if you didn’t know). Her job is to keep the boys under control. Not easy when you’ve got a noisy Mancunian (slang for a person from Manchester, England) whose team has enjoyed the most successful decade in their history. Ben “Beery” Beer is a fierce Manchester City fan who won’t hear about any other team in his city! Completing the team from a quaint village in the North east of England, Welbury, we’ve got Mike “Paz” Parry. Not content with Welbury FC (is that a thing?) he puts himself forward as a Liverpool lad who is in a constant battle with Beery for EPL bragging rights.
