Season 2?

When will the next season of this great podcast begin?

Engrossing narrative to make you question everything

Forgotten and marginalized group of people get a light of day for once in the sun as opposed to the dark lens that surround them in everyday life. This podcast is actually making me think about what’s next for me.

If anybody from production is reading this, please do an episode on Premier League in the advent of Video Assistant Referee (VAR). “Futbol” has been as corrupt as it has been the beautiful game. You can do an episode on FIFA’s corruption around their nefarious creation of rules and utmost disregard for them. The story however is in the new paradigm introduced into the game by VAR. Is the game better because it’s fairer or is it worse?

Finally

I had been wondering what Mr Lewis’ next step would be in his production of quality content. I have read most of his books with gusto and I cannot explain as well as he does how necessary his voice is today and in this country. His analysis of the public’s perspective on society’s rule makers and enforcers is poignant and fantastic. Keep them coming!
