The King of the Road podcast, hosted by my good friend, Rory Jennings, has a brand new episode.
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 four), in which Rory and guest Sophie Rose talk about:
- the win against Manchester United
- the difference between the various London accents
- David Luiz being dropped
- Michael Emenalo leaving the club
- starting a fan channel on YouTube
- glamour modeling
- and much more!
How to listen
Where to find Rory
Where to find this week’s guest (Sophie)
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.
