On the first episode of Plugged In, we chat to Hashtag United Operations Director, Neil Smythe. With over 20 years of experience in the sports media industry, Neil shares his invaluable knowledge of one of the most competitive industries. In our conversation, we talk about his role behind the scenes at Hashtag United and launching the first ever fan channels, including Full Time Devils. We also get to grips with the negative side of the industry and how drama thrives in the YouTube world. Neil talks about his experience on Soccer AM and Copa 90, before sharing what he would look for as an employer for people wishing to enter the football media industry.
