Here is our next episode in the Global Sport Conversations Podcast Series. We interviewed Keir Radnedge, who has been covering football worldwide for more than 50 years, writing 36 books, from tournament guides to comprehensive encyclopedias, aimed at all ages. His journalism career has included reporting at 14 World Cups as well as many Olympic Games and European Championships.
