NEW PODCAST LIVE NOW Reflecting on Stephen Hawking

God on the Pitch

On football

On football. On the momentous occasion of the World Cup, we at the Woolf Institute sat down to discuss how religion plays a role on the pitch. Is football the new religious experience? Does it transcend our human differences or reinforce them? Most importantly, who will emerge victorious in Moscow on 15 July, and is God on their side? Featuring Ed Kessler, Esther-Miriam Wagner, Jessica Tearney-Pearce and Rodrigo Garcia-Velasco Bernal.

Encounter is a discussion podcast produced by the Woolf Institute and presented by its Founder Director Dr Ed Kessler. Episodes will explore the relationship between religion and society. Join Ed and guests as they navigate their way through some of society's most debated topics.
