S2 Episode 1: Tim Vickery, Uruguay 2-1 Brazil, 1950

Rejoice! The Halcyon Podcast is back for a second series in conversation with the great and the good of football writing.

Loosely based on our new book Against All Odds (available from all good stockists), Adam meets up with South American football expert Tim Vickery to chat about a result that sent shockwaves through Brazil in 1950.

Adam and Tim discuss the game, the tournament and the resulting fortunes from both sides of the story, exploring whether or not it was really an upset at all and the key role of historical and political context in telling the story.
