The first-ever bunkered Podcast LIVE has been hailed a huge success after staging its inaugural event in Glasgow.

A crowd of more than 120 people attended Drygate Brewery for almost two hours of straight-talking golf chat from bunkered’s Michael McEwan, Bryce Ritchie and Alex Perry as The bunkered Podcast swapped the studio for the stage for the first time.

Presented by Eden Mill St Andrews, the event was the latest step in the evolution of the show, which launched in 2020 and has since established itself as the UK’s No.1 golf media podcast.

On the night, Michael, Bryce and Alex debriefed the Ryder Cup, discussing where it was won and lost.

There was also some chat around Tiger Woods’ preferred hotel room in St Andrews and Robert MacIntyre’s in-flight dining as he returned to Scotland following his starring role in Europe’s victory in Rome.  

Some of the most popular features from the weekly show were also brought to life, including the Honesty Box, with opportunities for audience members to join in the discussion and win prizes.

“We’re absolutely delighted with how the first-ever bunkered Podcast LIVE went,” said host Michael McEwan. “Taking the show from the studio to the stage was something we were really excited to do but it took a massive amount of planning by a number of people behind the scenes.  

“The reaction from the audience both during and after the show, not to mention the number of messages we’ve received on social media since the event, tells us that it was a huge success and gives us an amazing platform upon to build from.  

“We’re also extremely grateful for the support we received from Eden Mill. Like us, they have some really ambitious plans in the pipeline for golf and it was pleasure to partner with them.”

bunkered editor Bryce Ritchie added: “This is a hugely exciting time to be part of the bunkered team. Already this year, we’ve increased the frequency of our magazine from eight issues a year to ten, and we’ve moved into selling on the newsstand beyond Scotland for the first time ever.  

“Meanwhile, our digital footprint is growing rapidly. Our website is getting bigger and better all the time, whilst our social media channels continue to put us firmly at the forefront of the conversation. 

“We are growing constantly, and taking advantage of exciting new opportunities such as The bunkered Podcast LIVE will help super-charge that growth.”
