Far Away Fan

A podcast about football fans, and their personal journeys with their long distance love for clubs at the other end of the world. In each episode, we speak to a guest to understand how and why they ended up dedicating themselves to a football club. But most importantly what it has meant to them, and what it has brought to their lives.
