Great podcast on football culture
Love this podcast. The opposite of sky sports coverage of the game we love.
Not your usual footy podcast
Insightful & varied = a quality listen
Football & Travel - What more do you need???
I'm not sure how I stumbled across this, but I love it. Who doesn't like to find a game or a ground when abroad, this just gives some more insight in to some select places. I'm binge-listening to the previous episodes at the moment. Keep it up.
