About The Scoreless Thriller Podcast
The Scoreless Thriller Podcast comes from a simple idea, that the attraction to football has always foremost for us been about human stories. Beyond the joy and emotion that the game can bring, beyond the tactics and beautiful play, what got us hooked on the game was the characters and personalities involved.
Our first guest on the show was American Samoan goalkeeper Nicky Salapu, who famously conceded 31 goals to Australia in 2001. He has an incredible story of perseverance and bravery in the face of adversity, and building a relationship with him where he sent us both signed shirts has been the ultimate highlight of our podcast journey so far.
So come along for the ride as we dive into the relationship between football and history, culture and politics. We will be covering some hot current topics as well as doing deep dives on games and issues from the past. However heavy the issues may be, we try to keep it light-hearted and positive too.
