After a brief hiatus over the festive period, The King of the Road podcast, hosted by my good friend, Rory Jennings, is back and better than ever.
In the latest episode, Rory and special guest Charlie “The Hurricane” Skillen have plenty to talk about, including:
- Olivier Giroud
- recapping the Premier League transfer window
- the worst moments they’ve seen at Stamford Bridge (hint: FSW, QPR, SWP)
- Three Billboards
- the relative handsomeness of Chelsea’s squad
- Rory sneaking into a cup final at Wembley
- the Oscars (the awards, not the Brazilian)
- and much more!
How to listen
Where to find Rory
Where to find this week’s guest (Charlie Skillen)
For whatever my recommendation is worth, I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough. Rory has had a season ticket to Chelsea since the 1994/95 season (when he was around ten years old) and had a streak of never missing a match - home or away - spanning several years, that was only recently broken last April when his wedding happened to take place during Chelsea - Crystal Palace.
If you’re interested in hearing game recaps from the perspective of match-going fans (what were the loudest chants at Bournemouth away, what is the worst commute to an away ground, why are European away days so brilliant?) and a bit of football culture (the history of Roma and Lazio, why Nottingham Forest fans are great) and London culture (how to make a proper gin and tonic), you’ll absolutely love this podcast.
