I’d never done any radio before but I got a call out of the blue in the summer of 2011 and I’ve been filing reports for the BBC World Service’s World Football show ever since.
Almost all of my travels for Thirty One Nil were recorded for the World Football show. At the top you will find a 45 minute long show, The Road to Brazil, which ran before the World Cup, charting my journey across the world to cover the qualification campaign.
The highlight, I think, was the American Samoa team. I was lucky enough to be in Samoa to capture their first ever victory on tape. Here’s an half an hour show on it.
There was also this, a report from the Confederation Cups in Brazil. I kept the mic running as a riot broke out in Belo Horizonte. This report was nominated for a Radio Academy Award.
You can hear me on the World Football show most weeks. Podcasts are updated every Friday and can be found here.
