We're back for a very special episode of the Football Shirt Pod - as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of the great tournaments, Euro 96. 

We're joined by not one but three guests as we look back at a very special summer of football a quarter of a century ago. 


On the eve of the Champions League Final, we're joined by Chelsea podcaster Alex Goldberg, who discusses the Blues' chances of overcoming Man City and explains how, despite living thousands of miles away in Boston, he developed a devotion to the Stamford Bridge club.


This very special episode sees us host the 'These Football Times' podcast special edition – 'The Story of Sampdoria's Legendary Scudetto 30 years on'.

It's been 30 years since the Sampdoria of Mancini, Vialli, Lombardo, Vierchowod and Boskov defied the odds to lift the Scudetto. The TFT podcast team remember that legendary side, their greatest games, the star names, the unsung heroes and more.


The Football Shirt Pod is back for Series 2 - and we're kicking off with a hugely enjoyable chat with This Fan Girl head honcho Amy Drucquer.

This Fan Girl started out as a photography project to counter the stereotypical portrayal of female football supporters - and since then, it's grown into a thriving community and celebration of female fandom.

Amy's also a massive Leicester City fan - so prepare yourself for a misty-eyed reminiscence of the Foxes unlikely 2016 title triumph.


Episode 12 of the Football Shirt Pod is here - and we're back with a fascinating interview with Simon Clifford, the man who befriended Juninho when he moved to Teeside, introduced futsal to the UK, taught Keira Knightley how to play football, and even got Socrates to turn out for his own non-league football club.


Episode 11 of the Football Shirt Pod is here and we're very glad to have you back. Today's episode is a bit different - we spoke to Jenny Simmons, founder of Manon magazine and a long-time friend of Cult Kits, about where the idea for the project came from.

And then we asked her to pick the five football shirts that mean most to her and tell us why they're so special. Think Desert Island Discs but with kits and much, much more interesting. 


Episode 10: Marion Reimers is familiar to millions in Mexico and America as one of the voices of Fox Sports' football coverage. We spoke to her about her love of the game, her passion for football shirts and what it meant to become the first woman to broadcast the Champions League Final.


We're back again for Episode 9 of the Football Shirt Pod and we've got a World Cup winner for you today - Craig Buglass is the man who designed the shirt Brazil wore when they lifted the trophy in 2002. He is also the creative genius behind a whole host of other classic jerseys. And he even designed a Sunderland shirt, which, for a Newcastle fan, was not easy.


It's episode 8 and we're talking to Ellis Platten, YouTuber, Leeds United die-hard and football shirt super fan.


Our seventh episode and we're joined by Dan Sandison, head of brand at Mundial, who talks about the magazine's origins, Andrea Pirlo's beard and his obsession with Liverpool Football Club.


Episode 6 of the Football Shirt Pod and today we're joined by Omar Saleem, the Editor in Chief of the brilliant long form magazine, These Football Times.


Welcome to Episode 5 of the Football Shirt Pod - we're joined by an actual, real-life football shirt designer - Rob Warner, the man responsible for a World Cup-winning jersey. 


We're back with episode 4 of the Football Shirt Pod - and this week we're talking to James Brown, the man who, in 1994, founded Loaded magazine - and with it the entire lads mag genre. He's also a masssssive Leeds United fan. But more on that later. 


We've made another podcast and this time we chatted to Neal Heard, author of The Football Shirts Book and an unrivalled authority on kits. He was, as expected, great. Take a listen.


Our second episode and we're joined by Joe Dempsie, star of Skins and Game of Thrones... and a massive Nottingham Forest Fan. Joe talks about his odd text relationship with Shaun Wright Phillips, starting a brawl at Pride Park and hanging out in lifts with Jose Mourinho.


Our first podcast - and to mark the occasion we're joined by the brilliant Charlie Cooper from the equally brilliant BBC 3 comedy This Country, who talks Fulham, Football Manager and forgetting football songs.
