On this month’s show we wrap up our focus on sports and music with a look at the cultural politics of the world’s most popular sport, Football. We are doing so in anticipation of the upcoming Men’s World Cup tournament taking place in Qatar this November and December. For it, we’ve invited special guests Sean Jacobs and Tony Karon who host the football podcast Eleven Named People, to select some songs and talk about the anti-colonial contours of the global game, and what they anticipate in the upcoming Cup.
This is also the last show on Worldwide FM as the station is taking a pause for new programming. So Africa Is a Country radio will also take a pause while we look for a new home to host our monthly broadcasts. Until then enjoy this last special show, and visit our many years of episodes on Mixcloud and on Worldwide FM.
