    Today's Guest: Kris Voakes
    ---

    Kris Voakes, Journalist and marathoner for charity.

    Having realised from a very young age that he was much better at talking football than playing it, the veteran of 43 games and scorer of 13 goals for Palace (Alexandra, not Crystal) started life in sports journalism with a production stint at Oakwell AM, Barnsley FC's matchday radio station. Kris then graduated to the production and reporting ranks at talkSPORT in London, where his biggest claim to fame was begging Chris Waddle to become Sheffield Wednesday boss every time they sacked a manager... which was often.

    After a spell out of journalism, during which he became more and more frustrated with the poor British coverage of his increasingly beloved italian football, he took the bull by the horns in moving to Milan at the beginning of 2009. David Beckham found inspiration from his move and followed him to the fashion capital of the world. His early work on the peninsula has included regular columns for http://italian-calcio.blogspot.com and fortnightly ramblings with Steven and Kenny on WSD. If all goes awry in journalism, he plans to check out the MilanLab and play football well into his 50s.

    Graham Hunter, Revista de la Liga.

    Graham is one of those league experts that knows way to much to be healthy. When you ask him "Does A + B = C", he'll not only answer that, but tell you how to arrive at that answer, how that answer would differ at La Mestalla vs La Rosaleda, and what the last 10 games were like for B defensively. On the road. During Februarys. Wednesdays.

    He's brilliant.

    Today's Guest: Tim Vickery
    ---

    Tim Vickery, Columnist and a god.

    The son of a reasonably skilled amateur footballer, Tim Vickery inherited all of the enthusiasm and none of the talent. But the game helped to hone his literary skills; despite never making it out of England until his mid-20s he could spell Czechoslovakia (a sadly redundant skill these days) by the age of 7 - all based on the fact that they had made it to two World Cup finals.
    Since 1994 he has been based in Brazil, and he covers South American football for the BBC, World Soccer magazine, Sports Illustrated and SBS in Australia.

    The studio had no internet today, so there was no "live" broadcast, just a podcast. Apologies to those who were hoping to catch it live.
