Podcast 191: An Echo of Glory, Part 1 – From Genesis to Revelation

by | Jan 6, 2020

We have a new podcast series for 2020, starting this morning. This is An Echo of Glory, a new, twenty-part series charting the history of football in England and Wales, from its codification to the modern day. This first episode is about how football came to be, from mob games in medieval England to the formation of the Football Association and the codification of the game. It’s a story of the British class system, newly freed-up leisure time, and of the transformative effect of the railways.

There’s a bunch of different ways in which you can subscribe to the 200% podcast. You can do so through Spotify, which you can find right here, and you can download this week’s to listen to at your leisure by right-clicking and saving here, whilst the podcast RSS feed is here and you can subscribe through Itunes here. Please rate and review if you appreciate what we do!

And if you’re wondering about any other ways in which you can prevent us from wasting away and ultimately starving to death, we also still have our Redbubble shop, for the sartorially minded amongst you, and you can get more 200% podcasts on a variety of different subjects by joining us on Patreon. We even now have a Kofi button, so do feel free to feed me stimulants in order to keep me cracking on in a caffeine-fuelled state of delirium until four o’clock every morning, and many thank yous to those of you who have already been generous enough to donate.
