James Montague is not your average football writer. From the Middle East to North Korea and just about everywhere in between, he has traveled around the world attempting to understand politics and culture through the prism of football.
Whether he's dancing for the Iraq national team, following American Samoa in their unlikely quest for World Cup qualification or interviewing the infamous Gigi Becali, James is always on the hunt for a football story less ordinary.
In this interview with Marcus Speller, exclusive to acast+ subscribers, the man fresh back from Pyongyang once described as 'The Indiana Jones of football journalism' tells us what makes him tick and regales us of his most entertaining and dramatic experiences.
