Frankly insane amounts of abuse- Celtic podcast host decides to step down

Image for Frankly insane amounts of abuse- Celtic podcast host decides to step down

Laura Bradburn has announced that she is stepping down as one of the host presenters on the Celtic State of Mind podcast. 

Update: Laura is stepping down from Twitter, not ACSOM.

Over almost two years she had been a familiar voice on the shows with a regular Friday slot alongside Jim Orr and Tony Haggerty. 

The appeal of most podcasts is that the content comes from enthusiastic fans rather than polished and bland media professionals with Laura fitting the bill perfectly. 

There were heart on sleeve comments, discussions and opinions as well as a natural ability to keep the show running along, covering the topics of the day. 

Sadly some folk, mainly on Twitter seem incapable of decency or debating relevant points, sinking to personal abuse with their comments. 

A thick skin only goes so far, when the fun and enjoyment goes it is best to step aside. Taking a break from the frontline hopefully Laura reappears at some stage further down the line- and enjoys the last four matches of the season to the max.

    Hi guys. Thanks for the support on this but just wanted to clarify – I haven’t stepped down from the pod. I have decided to shut down my Twitter account but will remain on the show as long as I’m welcome to do so.

      Watched you often Laura on the show. You were always very informed and balanced. What a sad time for Paul and the Acsom team. All the very best for your future endeavours
