RADIKAAL

My guest today is activist and author Gabriel Kuhn. As an activist and author of books on both music and politics and sports and politics, Gabriel is the personification of RADIKAAL. Gabriel has written on pirates and Straight Edge music, a topic I hope to tackle another time with him, as in this episode we focus primarily on sports and politics. Gabriel is not on social media, but you should really buy his books, in particular “Soccer vs the State: Tackling Football and Radical Politics” and “Playing As If the World Mattered: An Illustrated History of Activism in Sports.”

Cas and Gabriel talk about the complex relationship between the workers movement and football as well as capitalism and football, reminisce about the good old days, and fantasize about a football beyond the Champions League.
