“Why spend your time being sh*te at football in the pissing rain, when you can sit indoors and write about how sh*te the professionals are.” - Michael McKean

In Michael’s career as a copywriter and journalist, he’s written about everything from language and travel to music, tech and sports - and has plied his trade in the UK, Switzerland, Brazil and a handful of EU nations. With a flair for writing everything from the pragmatic and serious, right down to the plain silly and ridiculous, Michael has earned a reputation among his fellow writers and editors for being the ultimate “Banterous Professional” (no one’s ever actually said that, he just made it up - coining the term “Banterous Professional” in the process).

We asked

Are you a cat or a dog person?
"If you’d asked me this three months ago, I would’ve said dogs hands down. However, after much persuasion from my partner, I caved and we adopted a stray cat and I fell in love straight away. Still love dogs though - so can I say both?"
What is your favourite sport to bet on?
"The obvious answer here is football, as it’s the sport I know best and have had the most wins with. However, from a more objective viewpoint, I would have to say American football. It’s such a stats-driven sport, meaning that you have so many options to look at for each game with regard to prop bets."
What’s your ideal travel destination?
"My late grandmother was originally from Newfoundland and I still have a bunch of living relatives there that I have never met over there. My mum visited a few years back and managed to connect with them, so I would love to do the same someday. "
What’s your favourite TV Show?
"Can I say Sportscene and Match of the Day? That’s too boring, isn’t it? I’ve become more of a podcast person these days (mostly sports and esports-related), as I like the fact that their content can be consumed whilst doing something active. "
