If you’re feeling a bit down after seeing Chelsea fail to win consecutive London derbies, The King of the Road podcast, hosted by my good friend, Rory Jennings, will surely pick you back up.
In the latest episode, Rory and special guest Charlie “The Hurricane” Skillen have plenty to talk about, including:
- Charlie being famous in Japan
- the Ray Wilkins tribute at Stamford Bridge
- private members’ clubs
- the horror of losing to another London club when you live in London
- Charlie recently running in Rory’s ex at the pub
- 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.
