2-0: Season Two


As the world gears up for the 21st FIFA World Cup, hosted in Russia, Al Jazeera’s football podcast launches its second season with an eye, and an ear, on the game beyond the game in this international tournament.

In the show’s first season, Goldblatt used the lens of the world’s most global game to talk politics, culture, economics, immigration, religion, cinema, and all-time favorite goals with guests from around the world.

The second season of the show promises the same big-picture context, analysis, and humor that only Goldblatt can offer, with two new voices: Tony Karon, editorial lead for AJ+, former anti-apartheid activist, and avowed football fanatic, and producer Raja Shah, a wry and well-informed, but more casual fan. Together, they break down the action, the agony, and the joy of the competition, while connecting it to larger political, cultural, and historical questions.
