Go to Extra Time
With 90 minutes a week not nearly enough time for all the available football podcasts, we’ve selected the Premier League
MEN IN BLAZERS
For wit and menswear, the sharpest football analysis is by Roger Bennett and Michael Davies, two expat Brits at NBC in the US. Though the American Major League Soccer gets its fair share of attention, they spend a lot of air time poring over the English Premier League with a pint of Budweiser.
THE TOTALLY FOOTBALL SHOW
Last summer’s biggest transfer was Guardian Football Weekly host James Richardson to Muddy Knees Media, home of The Totally Football League Show and the Serie A podcast Golazzo. Makes sense, as Richardson fronted Channel 4’s Football Italia in the 1990s.
GAME OF OUR LIVES
Through the prism of the world’s most popular sport, sociologist, journalist and football historian David Goldblatt explores politics, culture, economics, immigration, religion and cinema. Guests who you won’t see on Super Sunday include cult film director Werner Herzog.
QUICKLY KEVIN, WILL HE SCORE?
Co-hosted by comedian Josh Widdicombe, this is a nostalgic celebration of the wonderfully unprofessional world of 1990s footy. The line-up of guests ranges from stars of the era such as Matt Le Tissier to like-minded comedian Frank Skinner.
