King of the Road podcast: Football, London and Laurence McKenna

The King of the Road podcast, hosted by my good friend, Rory Jennings, has a brand new episode.

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 last month, 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.

Here is the latest episode (number nine), in which Rory and guest Laurence McKenna, talk about:

  • Mohamed Salah’s brilliance,
  • the Dalston area of London,
  • Antonio Conte and the Conte documentary Laurence worked on,
  • nightclubs (which Rory loves more than anything, especially Cirque le Soir),
  • Rory and Laurence’s Thursday night league,
  • and much more!

How to listen

Where to find Rory

Where to find this week’s guest (Laurence McKenna)

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.
