Usually, The Agora podcast is dedicated to analysing the latest political, geopolitical, economic and even social developments affecting Greece.
In this episode, though, we have gone in a different direction.
Sixteen years on from one of the greatest upsets in sporting history, we look back at how Greece managed to win football’s European Championship in 2004.
A collection of journalists who followed that tournament and had a close eye on Greek football in the subsequent years join host Nick Malkoutzis to discuss how this incredible success was achieved and what legacy it left..
In the process, they also share some personal accounts of those heady summer days all those years ago.
The three guests are: Paris-based sports writer, commentator and documentary filmmaker Barney Spender, the man behind Road to Sparta documentary about the legendary Spartathlon race; Kathimerini English Edition business and sports journalist George Georgakopoulos; and Graham Wood, an Athens-based journalist and communications expert who has covered football for UEFA.com and Reuters, among others.
In this podcast series, we're keeping alive the spirt of our long-running blog section, The Agora, which has been a forum for discussing all kinds of issues over a number of years.
We’ll examine political, economic and social developments in Greece. But our podcasts will also look at what’s happening in the world around us.
We’ll provide you with insight from our own experts and analysis from special guests.
So, if you enjoy intelligent, lively discussion and want the bigger picture, join us for a stroll through the Agora.
