We had an excellent talk that included discussion on globalization, politics and capital, and the role of the working class in football’s history.

Thanks are in order to David Goldblatt for sharing his insights and to everyone who participated, including Ben Dettmar, Gordon Stewart, Alejandro Gonzalez, Andrew Guest, Tom McCabe, Tim Vickery, Steven Apostolov, Laurent Dubois, Peter Alegi, and Alex Galarza.

An audio recording of the conversation is below. Enjoy!
