The Moon Under Water

Max Rushden - Obedire Baggarts (Part 2)

Season 1, Ep. 104

*This is part 2 of Max's episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*


If you're a football fan then you'll be familiar with the pre-match pint. It's a magical pint full of excitement, discussions of tactics and - quite often - chanting. The post-match pint, however, is a differenet story. Will it be a pint of joy, or a pint of sorrow? Either way, football and pinting compliment each other perfectly, and this week's guest knows this only too well. It's presenter and host of Guardian Football Weekly Max Rushden!


Max grew up in Cambridge, and studied at Oxford; so he's well versed in the pubs of Oxford that played such an important role in the formative years of Landlord John and Robin. However, he's since decided to set up shop on the other side of the world... in Australia! Are we about to have our first ever Fosters-only pub? Probably not, but either way we can't wait to hear what he has in store.
