Those who listen to Hand Of Pod will know that over the last month, building up to the Copa América, we’ve recorded a bunch of special editions profiling some of the national teams most likely to make a dent in the tournament. We sadly couldn’t do episodes for all the countries we’d have liked, but this post collects together the episodes we did record – on Paraguay, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil and of course Argentina – in one place in case you missed them first time round. The Argentina episode, which went online on Monday, is right here; for the others, click on ‘Continue reading’ (unless you’ve come to this post following a link from elsewhere, in which case you won’t need to). And keep your ears open later in the week for a very special end-of-season edition of the regular podcast with special guest Tim Vickery!

is that podcast going to be with the same tim vickery that writes for the bbc? his column is one of my favorites.
No it’s another guy with the same name. He knows nothing about football but we thought we’d get him on to try and fool more people into listening… (?!)
hahaha got it. in retrospect, that may have been a dumb question.
What kind of drink is on the picture ? What kind of beer or wine?
Haha… it’s Fernet Branca, Chris. It’s an Italian liquor that’s very popular here in Argentina served over ice with Coca-Cola (NEVER Pepsi). Most Hand Of Pod episodes involve myself and the Dans – Seba barely drinks – getting sloshed on it during the recording process.
If you’ve ever wondered why we often start talking complete rubbish at the end of episodes, you now know.
Cheers then! I will try to find it in Poland during Copa:)
Have I arrived to podcast heaven? Vickery is coming? Lovely stuff indeed.
Saw your question on on twitter about TV rights to the Copa in the US. There will be no English channels carrying the Copa. YouTube will be carrying it (http://www.youtube.com/copaamerica), not sure if in English or Spanish.
