GasCast - Bristol Rovers Podcast

Mets sat down for a chat with  writer, author, broadcaster, journalist and most importantly Gashead David Goldblatt.

Among his books are The Games: A Global History of the Olympics, The Game of Our Lives: The Meaning and Making of English Football, Futebol Nation: A Footballing History of Brazil, and The Ball Is Round: A Global History of Football.

David started supporting Rovers after moving to Bristol and living just off Gloucester road. He talks about his experiences at the Mem as a fan and his one solitary away day. He picked a good un as it was the 2015 Playoff final!

David also talks about his work with the Rapid Transition Alliance and his reoprt 'Playing against the clock' which talks about the responsibility of sport to climate change and the measures that can be taken to reduce carbon emissions.

Lastly they talk about the rampant inequality in the game and how 'project big picture' could potentially change the game if it goes through.
