I’m very excited to share a brand new Chelsea podcast hosted by my good friend, Rory Jennings. It’s called King of the Road, and it’s amazing.
Some of you may know Rory from CFC Fan TV, his previous career as a Hollywood bad boy, or most likely, his unmistakable dress choices at Chelsea matches, home and away.
Rory has recently launched a brand new podcast, where he talks all things Chelsea, London, and football culture.
When the first episode debuted a few weeks ago, it immediately climbed up the iTunes table and within 24 hours, was one of the top-ranked football podcasts in the world. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.
Here is the latest episode (number three), in which Rory and guest, Charlie Skillen, talk about Chelsea - Roma, Charlie’s trip to Rome, Italian football culture, the upcoming Manchester United match, Oasis, and much more.

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.
There are some great Chelsea podcasts out there - including the fantastic London is Blue pod - and 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.
