Episode 1800: The Glory Of Frank, LFC Celebrations, Richie On Player Activism
In 1956 a young Senator named John F Kennedy wrote a bestselling book, Profiles In Courage, about eight times American political leaders had demonstrated outstanding courage, leadership and integrity in the line of duty. The collection of inspirational stories about inspirational men would win the Pulitzer Prize for Biography.
It is a pity Kennedy was shot dead in 1963, for if he were still alive today the 103-year old ex-President would at this very moment be sitting at his desk composing a ninth Profile in Courage, to be added to an all-new edition of his classic work, as the only fitting way to mark Frank Lampard’s triple substitution at Leicester City yesterday afternoon.

Editing this every day made a surreal time even weirder but I loved it. A huge thanks to @phlaimeaux for all his work. It may be our final Isolating podcast from Doddles but I hope it’s not our last wrangle together. Thanks Isolators/Insulators/Isolhaters???? ???? ???? @SecondCaptains https://t.co/nsFNyNLVsy
