In our latest “fan journey” special, we take the term literally – host Steve Crooks and regular pod expert Cameron Wilson are joined by a packed sleeper train compartment of Shenhua fans from Shanghai and afar for this live recording.
The fans hold court on their long journey to Beijing to watch their struggling side – this raw and honest recording gives an insight into the traveling fan mindset, and explores the reasons binding people from a range of backgrounds into this shared experience.
There’s less of the football itself than a typical pod, but plenty of cultural insight and exploration of the factors on and off the pitch which bring us to the game we love – this is a don’t-miss recording for fans of Shenhua or the game itself.
If you enjoy listening to the pod and appreciate the considerable time and effort which goes into producing each episode, please consider supporting us financially via Patreon.
We are also very pleased to be hosted and broadcast on Football Nation Radio.
Don’t miss the chance to get involved in the discussion on Twitter at #chinafootypod – we love hearing feedback and do our best to field your questions and suggested topics every week.
