A special project: A podcast on football and homophobia

It's not often that I use this place to hawk out my football-related work (you'd all get bored quickly, I'm sure), but the latest podcast I've recorded is about more than just sport. For the last two months, I've been working on a special one-off twofootedtackle podcast on attitudes to homosexuality within football and what the authorities are doing to tackle homophobia in the game.

As somebody who started researching this from a position of knowing very little about the subject, it's been fascinating to look closer at the topic. I've spoken to a range of people, from a member of a gay football team, to a transgender fan, to one of the few sports journalists to write about homophobia in the game. Every single interview has made me think and often reassess my own views. Hopefully it'll do the same when you listen to it.

The documentary is just under 45 minutes long, so please do stop by twofootedtackle to have a listen. I'll be really interested to hear what you think.
