Life Elsewhere celebrates World Cup 2014 with a dream-team of experts on the beautiful game. Caitlin O’Connell and Phil Schoen, two highly respected soccer pundits, will join the program to give us the definitive overview. We’ll ask what can we expect from Brazil, the highlights, the games not to miss and of course, the predictions. Plus, we’ll learn about the growing popularity of soccer in the US of A. Robert Priest, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Eight by Eight, a brilliant new magazine devoted to the beautiful game will talk about why the timing is right to launch a unique magazine on soccer and his passion for the game. Robert and his co-partner Grace Lee, have created a publication that is not only beautiful to look at, its fascinating and entertaining, even to the non-soccer fan. While we talk with Robert we encourage you to view the magazine by going to 8by8mag. A characteristic tradition at soccer matches, beginning in the UK, over a century ago are Fan Chants. We will talk with Michael Dennis of FanChants as he explains exactly what FanChants means and why the unstoppable passion for singing the praises of your favorite team at the top of your lungs. “The best thing about football they say is the banter, the wit and the passion that you only get when crammed in next to a few thousand of your fellow die hard fans. The game may be increasingly about the money, the business, the suits and all the flamboyant trimmings, but we all know it would die on its arse (ass) without the real fans” Says Michael Dennis.
