Football and feminism are both huge parts of our culture and everyday lives, but rarely have they been brought together and forced to get along.
In this podcast, comedian and feminist activist Grace Campbell, and her father, that well-known guy from politics, Alastair Campbell, bring Grace’s obsession of feminism, and Alastair’s obsession of football together to create what they hope is a fun and thought provoking podcast.
Each week they’ll be joined by people from varying industries to chat football, feminism, and everything in between. The guests will vary from football (Burnley manager Sean Dyche) to feminism (countdown star Rachel Riley) to anything else in between (Ed Miliband, Kelly Holmes, and Josh Widdecombe).
*ABOUT THE HOSTS *
Grace Campbell is a comedian and activist who is fast making a name for herself as a feisty feminist stand-up. Grace is currently writing her debut solo-show to the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. The show, Why I’m Never Going Into Politics, tells Grace’s story of growing up in politics and why she feels her life so far has meant she could never be a politician. As an activist, Grace co-founded the feminist, law-changing, activist collective, the Pink Protest.
Alastair Campbell is a writer, communicator and strategist best known for his role as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications. Alastair is a lifelong Burnley fan and sometimes even a pundit for Burnley FC. Alastair is still very active in politics, mainly focussing his energy on mental health causes, and trying to stop Brexit. He is very excited to be venturing into the podcast world with his daughter.

Pop on the headphones and listen!

What fabulous, insightful, intelligent guests. Sean Dych, Gabby Logan, Mario Itjoe. Men and women alike don’t be put off by the title. A really good listen.

Amazing combo

The title could be me summed up in one sentence (a female feminist football researcher)! I am a huge fan of the combo and how it displays and at the same time breaks down the gender stereotypes!
Thanks for being amazing!!

Best podcast around!

I love this podcast! I’m new to podcasts and this one has genuinely helped me get through a difficult time because it’s so easy to listen to and the dynamic between Alastair and Grace is brilliant.
The guests have all been interesting, and there have been a variety of sportspeople, politicians and others.
I love both football, and feminist issues, so this podcast is perfect. Keep up the good work!
