My guest is Kevin Simpson, author of 'Soccer Under the Swastika', which examines the experience of football in Nazi-occupied areas during World War II.
We're joined by Dr. Kevin Moore, the former CEO of the National Football Museum. His book 'What You Think You Know About Football is Wrong' seeks to debunk some popularly-held myths, and we talk through some of them here. We also discuss his former role at the National Football Museum and some of its more popular artifacts.
We welcome Paul Brown back onto the podcast to talk us through the experience of football prisoners of war during World War I.
How did they arrange games? What did they do next? How did their experience shape the rest of their careers? Tune in to find out!
We talk to Mark Wilson, who re-established the Wanderers Football Club, the first ever FA Cup winners.
The Corinthians and The Casuals were absolutely key to the spreading of football and the ethos of fair play. We talk to Llew Walker from the modern day Corinthian-Casuals FC in England's 7th tier to learn of their relevance and legacy.
