In this special episode, Jake will introduce you to Benched, a new podcast by Message Heard. Benched offers you a new host each week as it brings you the human stories often sidelined in the world of sport. In episode one, gifted to you in this feed, you'll hear from Eric Murangwa, the goalkeeper for Rwanda's biggest team, Rayon Sports, when the genocide began in 1994. As part of the persecuted Tutsi minority, he tells the story of how football, and his Hutu teammates, helped save him from near certain death. Guest host for this episode is fellow goalkeeper David Preece.
