    Lets have a (Non Sport) Podcast thread

    Lots of my favourites already mentioned. However, the below are worth a listen within the true crime genre: Swindled - White Collar crime and corporate greed http://swindledpodcast.com/ Reply All - Episodes #64 thru #67 - Fascinating story of Paul Modrowski who writes a blog from inside a US prison where he is on the basis of a murder conviction which he denies. Also, it's quite nice to delve into the Desert Island Discs podcast, huge back catalogue spanning decades.

    Let's have a TV shows thread.

    The Football Club: Artist in Residence. https://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-football-club-artist-in-residence An artist with no huge interest in football spends last season with WBA. It's a really interesting insight into WBA and football itself.

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Nick Clegg was a decent politician and remains an eminently sensible political commentator. My feeling is that he found himself in an almost impossible situation at the point he formed the coalition government (Mervyn King telling him that the UK, European and (potentially) global economy was hanging in the balance). He sacrificed himself and his political party for the sake of the country. Not something the current incumbents of office and shadow office seem to be willing to do. Clearly, question marks hang over his judgement and role in that government. But, I don't think that should totally besmirch his work until that point, nor overshadow some of the good work he did in office - including his softening of Cameron's austerity cuts. Is that unpopular? It probably is.

    Russia: Should England boycott the World Cup?

    I disagree with the notion that sport and politics should not mix. It's an incredibly effective way of getting public engagement with political issues. Especially where other more traditional routes are not working. However, I am not convinced that England boycotting this World Cup would make much of a statement in isolation. If Russia's alleged actions over the last few years are proven then I believe that there should be a greater calling across the world for some response. Once you have several teams boycotting (especially if they are big nations), then sport has the real ability to make a real difference on a political level.
