Great angle

I enjoy the geopolitical angle in this podcast. Smart and engaging.

Right on

This was by far my favorite podcast to listen to during World Cup 2018. The mixture of politics and social commentary, especially given the turmoil our world is in was very welcome. I also appreciated that David's guests were largely people of color and women from all over the world; voices we don't often hear in journalism. Finally, I credit GoOL for introducing me to a superb, politlcally conscious band, Bang Data, who I've been listening to constantly of late.

entertaining, diverse, woke football podcast

Goldblatt and his diverse panel of guests talk football, politics and culture in a way that is inviting for the hard core fan and newbie alike. Worth your time.
