Episode 2519: What It Means To Argentina, Invading Mbappe’s Personal Space, Good Clean Golden Glove Fun
We have all been devouring viral videos of the celebrations on the streets of Buenos Aires for the last few days – so we thought why not go one further and hear from someone who was there on the streets when they won the World Cup on Sunday evening.
Teo Armus writes for the Washington Post and we talk to him about the outpouring of emotion at the Obelisk in the centre of Buenos Aires, why this means so much to a country riven by political division and soaring inflation – and the viral Granny that came to symbolise a country’s joy.
Plus there’s handsy Salt Bae, Emmanuel Macron invading Mbappe’s personal space, Emi Martinez japes aplenty, and an absolutely sterling edition of Good Clean Fun with Pat Kenny.
