That episode will be available via iTunes by Sunday night, so be sure to subscribe to the iTunes feed to receive the episode as soon as it’s released.Over the next few weeks, the EPL Talk Podcast will also feature interviews with three well-known soccer personalities:
- Tim Vickery (BBC) — The pundit appears on the BBC World Football Phone-In Show where he shares his incredible knowledge about the game (especially South American football). He also writes for Sports Illustrated, BBC Sport and SBS.
- Jim White (The Daily Telegraph) — The Man United supporter is a popular columnist for The Telegraph. His articles cover a range of topics, and often writes about referees. He’s also the author of a book entitled “You’ll Win Nothing With Kids: Fathers, Sons and Football,” which explores the emotions White felt coaching his son’s junior soccer team.
- David Conn (The Guardian) — The former sports writer of the year is a popular investigative and feature reporter, and also the author of the book entitled “The Beautiful Game? Searching The Soul of Football” (which focuses on the influence of money on modern day football).
