Imagine a life before Jurgen Klopp, Man Utd, millions of pounds being at stake and a frenzied planet being addicted to football...  That's what Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes did when he set about writing 'The English Game'. It's a fascinating look at class, passion, politics and the creation of one of the most popular sports in the world. 

Joining Julian to discuss the series are two football podcasting legends. Sam Delaney and Andy Dawson present Top Flight Time Machine (Andy is also 50% of Athletico Mince) and their pairing with Julian makes fo ra brilliant listen.

Such is the soaraway success of The Stranger - it would have been rude for Jamie not to have caught up with one of it's stars - comedy legend Jennifer Saunders, right? Right.
