For the past month or so, I have been in correspondence with the brilliant Katie Taylor, the British Society of Sports History Postgraduate/Early Career Researcher (PG/ECR) representative. As part of Katie’s role, she has started to record podcasts with PG/ECR members. Below is the link to our half-hour conversation:
There are over 50 tracks on the Sport in History Podcast, and I would recommend accessing further episodes.
Here are couple more bits and pieces that we reference during my podcast episode:
- Crackers – I use the phrase a number of times in the podcast (as you would), and to clarify, it is a North West England influenced term of endearment for a situation or person being silly or wacky!
