    More than a footballer: An interview with Daniel Sturridge

    Join Melissa Reddy for a brand new episode of Between The Lines, as we welcome a man who has scored more than a century of goals and remains one of the finest English strikers of his generation: former Liverpool, Chelsea and England forward, Daniel Sturridge!


    Daniel joins Melissa to look back over a storied career where he has forged a unique path, on and off the pitch. From scoring in European finals to starting a record label, we hear how Daniel has dealt with the undue pressure placed on footballers with interests away from the game. He also talks us through his troubles with injuries, staying in shape during his break from the game and what he can still bring to clubs looking for an elite striker with plenty to offer.

    Tackling the trolls: Social media abuse in football

    Tackling the trolls: Social media abuse in football

    On today’s episode of Between The Lines, we delve into the toxic, often harrowing world of social media abuse in football. From racism suffered by many of English football’s black players to the sexism directed at females working in the game, Melissa is joined by a host of informed voices to explore how these manifest online and what we can do to eradicate it.


    These include former-player-turned-pundit Alex Scott, who shares her personal experience with online hate speech, as well as media lawyer Matt Himsworth, the PFA’s Jason Lee and researcher Bertie Vidgen. Each guest helps answer the questions we have about social media abuse: why aren’t the platforms doing more to guard against it, are accounts truly anonymous, how do you successfully take trolls to court and what can we do to create a healthier online experience?

I’m sorry but the presenters voice is not conducive to my ears. Could only last a couple of minutes and had to turn off.
