Episode 2510: The Turn Of The Arab World, Infantino And Salt Bae
On today’s Second Captains World Cup show Ken meets up with Tariq Panja of the New York Times to discuss how he has found life and society in Qatar and where the World Cup fits into it all for the workers from South Asia who make up most of the population there.
Plus there’s Infantino’s strange behaviour, the significance of Morocco’s win over Spain, the turn of the Arab World, bachelor towns and Salt Bae.
