We take a break from weekly matters and dive into the first of a new series of in-depth chats to shine a more personal light on some of our contributors’ stories.
Kicking off the series is none other than WEF Founding Editor Cameron Wilson. In conversation with host Steve Crooks, Cam shares his origin story – hear how football joins the dots and makes connection throughout.
This first interview takes us from Dunfermline to Shanghai with a few stops in between, and leaves us with our subject fully integrating into Shenhua’s famous Lanmo supporters group. There’s time to reflect on some of the characters met along the way, and the role football plays as a mirror on culture and a means to integration and identity.
We’ll be following up with part two including some unredacted stories from the terrace and away trips, and a deeper dive into Shenhua fan culture – share your questions for part two and beyond!

We are also very pleased to be hosted and broadcast on Football Nation Radio.
