Michael MacCambridge of "Red Letters" on Liverpool's magical season, Jürgen Klopp and the Changing Face of Premier League Accessibility in America


Grant speaks about all things Liverpool with Michael MacCambridge, an Austin-based writer and author who's one half of "Red Letters," a weekly season-long series of letters about Liverpool FC for the Liverpool Echo with Neil Atkinson of The Anfield Wrap. They discuss MacCambridge's origin story with Liverpool and his thoughts on Liverpool fandom, what makes Jürgen Klopp and this Liverpool team special, and how we consume global sports in the 21st century. Grant and Michael, both Kansas City natives, also discuss their fandom for the NFL Chiefs, how they sat together in frigid conditions at last year's AFC championship game and what they would do if the Chiefs can win their first Super Bowl in 50 years. MacCambridge's books include '69 Chiefs (a new coffee table book on the only Chiefs Super Bowl winners), America's Game (on the history of the NFL) and The Franchise (on the history of Sports Illustrated).
