In the first episode of the Routledge History podcast, host Rob Langham talks to Chris Bolsmann of California State University, Northridge and Dilwyn Porter of De Montfort University about their new book, English Gentlemen and World Soccer. The book charts the history of the Corinthians Football Club which was one of the most influential clubs in the history of the sport and an organisation that lies at the centre of debates about professionalism versus amateurism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
