    Ep 1775: Smallfolk And Sovereigns, "On This Day" Week - 25/05/20

    Another pandemic football pod - the Bundesliga continues, American sports media turns its attention to Saipan, for the most part we keep going in search of lost time.

    As Spain continues its staged lifting of lockdown, we discuss Pepe Reina's approval of the self-styled freedom fighting patriots in Madrid, and Jean Michel Aulas' disbelief at the hasty actions of the French government in cancelling Ligue 1.

    Jonathan Wilson and Miguel Delaney join us to talk about trips to Barnard Castle, the latest in Project Restart, and for the week that's in it, reminiscences of great Champions League finals gone by.

    Ep 1772: Let Us Be Your Apollo Creed, The Second Captains Running Playlist - 20/05/20

    Today's free-to-air bonus podcast features your new fitness best friend. But it can also be your gardening/cooking/cleaning/resting best friend and it'll be right here for you whenever you need it.

    Many of our listeners around the world have started training over the lockdown. So we've compiled some of our favourite Second Captains audio beds from over the years to pump you up, to make you laugh, and most of all, to stop you from thinking about your burning legs.

    It's a 30 minute playlist that Eoin, Murph and Ken will introduce and countdown to. You'll get a polite and inspirational reminder of how much time has passed after the 10 and 20 minute mark.

    Your running playlist will start after 7.15 minutes of this podcast and your sprint finish will be the beautiful mix of David Bowie's 'Where Are We Now?' and Robbie Brady's goal against Italy in 2016.

    Soon you'll be sprinting on the beach à la Rocky Balboa. We're your Apollo Creed so let's finish our runs by celebrating in the sea in tiny shorts together.

    Good luck and join us on the Second Captains World Service at secondcaptains.com

    Ep 1769: Fussball Returns, Hips Don't Lie - 18/05/20

    Ep 1769: Fussball Returns, Hips Don't Lie - 18/05/20

    Football is back - in Germany at least - but might there be an incredibly obvious way in which its return could be improved?

    Eoin is pleased that running has become the sole sporting outlet of a people in chains, but he is by no means the most enthusiastic proponent of the no-ball game. Meanwhile Ken has been trying to develop correct hip alignment, incorporating advice from some of the greats.

    We speak to Felix Tamsut of Deutsche Welle about the Bundesliga restart: were there any setbacks on the first weekend of the return? How is the football changed by the absence of fans? Why did polls suggest that most Germans were against it? And if it's so unpopular, why did Sky Deutschland report record audiences for its Bundesliga programming this weekend?

    Plus there's Eoin's tropes, hostile Haaland and runner's friend.

Need Andy Dunne on every podcast

Andy Dunne gives the best insight and was 100% accurate with his thoughts on Irish rugby before the World Cup!

Why isn’t he on more?!?!

Brilliant podcast as always. Difficult to hear sometimes if on public transport. Can you increase volume of microphones?
