In this episode, we talk to James Montague, author of When Friday Comes: Football, War and Revolution in the Middle East, about his travels in the region. He’s seen the politics of the Israeli domestic scene and how Palestine uses football to raise awareness on the international stage. He’s seen the damaging affect the drug qat has had on the Yemeni public and football, and has been to some explosive derbies in Tehran, Cairo and Amman.

He also has an interesting perspective on the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Enjoy!
