Currently spearheading BBC Sport’s Black History Month content, Mim strongly advocates for women of colour in her work as a freelance journalist and has also written for gal-dem magazine, the Guardian, Dazed, and the IAAF. Writer and presenter Anita co-founded Goal Diggers UK – England’s first black female-led football podcast - and has featured on Sky Sports, Nike, The Athletic, and more. They were all tasked with giving a Ted-Style talk on their burgeoning football careers – the highlights, the realities, and how you can follow in their footsteps.

    S2 Ep6: Nicole Chui on being a good goalkeeper and intersectionality hits and misses

    Today’s guest is Nicole Chui, a London-based creative, embroidery artist, and Victoria Park Vixens goalkeeper. You may have seen the brilliant sneakers Nicole designed last year, or her FEM FAM zine which explores streetwear and DIY culture by women worldwide. Or some of her embroidery art – she was named on the Evening Standard's 25 under 25 list in 2019 and recently made a ‘Glorious’ embroidered artwork that featured Manchester United players in their 21/22 third kit. Or some of the fun social content she makes with her grassroots team. This conversation took place over Zoom after the exclusive Jersey Upcycling workshop she hosted in central London.

    S2 Ep5: Hattie Crowther on making non-binary corsets, upcycling football shirts, and Jorja Smith

    S2 Ep5: Hattie Crowther on making non-binary corsets, upcycling football shirts, and Jorja Smith

    Today’s guest is Hattie Crowther, fashion designer and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University and the University of East London. The designer is best known for the bespoke football corsets (and progressive visuals) she showed at London Fashion Week for Spring Summer 2021– singer Mabel has worn one and Jorja Smith commissioned one – and they've been featured on The Face magazine's website. The British Fashion Council sponsored her master’s degree in menswear at the University of Westminster – a real coup for Crowther whose non-binary clothing really celebrates her northern, working-class roots and is inspired by her friends. This conversation took place over Zoom ahead of the exclusive MKRLAB workshop she hosted in central London.

    S2 Ep4: Tino Anjorin and Ed Cowburn on how they’re defining their style on and off the pitch

    S2 Ep4: Tino Anjorin and Ed Cowburn on how they’re defining their style on and off the pitch

    Today’s guests are Chelsea midfielder Tino Anjorin and Acid FC founder Ed Cowburn. Tino, who just went out on loan to FC Lokomotiv, is a box-to-box midfielder who signed for Chelsea as an under-9s player. The 19-year-old made his senior breakthrough under Frank Lampard in December 2020 when he started Chelsea's Champions League home group stage game against Russian side Krasnodar. He’s into clothes big time. Ed Cowburn founded the disruptive London-based design studio Acid FC and it is really hitting its stride as Soccerdelic™ purveyors-in-chief (by psychedelic means) and Red Star FC’s 2020/21 adidas kit designers. Imaginatively retracing the club’s history in toile de Jouy sketches featuring famous players, supporters, and the stadium, these excellent green home, and red/white away kits were used to educate school children about the local area. This conversation took place in person in West London.

    S2 Ep3: Lisa Evans, Ruth Davies, Sophie Hird, Jameela Elfaki and Fadumo on how football inspires them to be creative

    S2 Ep3: Lisa Evans, Ruth Davies, Sophie Hird, Jameela Elfaki and Fadumo on how football inspires them to be creative

    Today’s guests are Lisa Evans, Ruth Davies, Sophie Hird, Jameela Elfaki, and Fadumo.
    Lisa, who transferred from Arsenal to West Ham after we recorded this, is a pacey winger who‘s won 12 trophies throughout her career including league titles in Scotland, Germany, and England. She is also a UEFA We Play Strong Ambassador and vlogger.

    Ruth is a contemporary artist whose work is characterised by its brightly coloured, illustrative aesthetic as it contemplates the female football gaze. Her paintings have been featured online in British Vogue, Grazia France, and Shukyu Japanese football magazine.

    Sophie is a fashion designer who upcycles football jerseys to create brilliant separates — western shirts, shorts, and more — that are made to order. Indie band Sports Team have worn her pieces and this Bricks Magazine quote sums up her work: ‘Fighting football’s historically stereotypical toxic masculinity with flamboyantly camp 17th century inspired looks, and resisting the waste of mass-produced fashion through made-to-order pieces and completely second-hand fabrics.’

    Jameela is an English-Sudanese photographer, art director, editor, and DJ based in London. She is the founding editor and art director of the independent magazine and platform AZEEMA, which launched in 2017 and centres women and non-binary people from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.

    Fadumo is a former footballer, youth worker, and the Telegraph's first women's sport social media editor. She was also a recipient of a Football Black List ‘Ones To Watch’ award in 2019 and is an ambassador for the Youth Sport Trust.

    This conversation took place in person in West London.
