Radio 110: We're Stylists
We potentially bite off more than we can chew unpicking Manchester City's numerous breaches of UEFA's FFP regulations, but financial corruption will surely join other topics in our wheelhouse that we also discuss in the episode: VAR, Bottega Veneta clutch bags and the merits and demerits of Olivier Giroud.  'How Football Leaks is Exposing Corruption in European Soccer' / Sam Knight https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/06/03/how-football-leaks-is-exposing-corruption-in-european-soccer

Episode 8 - Antonio Cassono & Dua Lipa
Allegedly, it's the scandal episode at 110 Percent, where Livi and Tamara try and revisit all of our favourite stories - although there are too many to count. We manage to squeeze in Bruno and Eliza Samudio, Rhodri and Ryan Giggs, the Zahia Affair, and try and work out what exactly a pierced party chicken could be.

Episode 7 - Mohamed Boumezrag & BDE
Livi and Tamara talk big dick energy and provide a vital primer on who’s got it this competition and who doesn’t. We then get half-serious and talk about football, politics, and nationalism, when Mussolini pretended to invent football and a France-Algeria friendly gone awry. Also, Livi flies to Belgrade halfway through the episode. * Corrections' Corner - we say that France and Algeria haven't played since the 2001 friendly! They have.

Livi is in Cyprus!

Episode 4 - Robbie Williams & Lavrentiy Beria
Livi and Tamara dip a toe into their Russia obsession talking proletariat hero Lev Yashin, the NKVD, and the Baltic Fleet, as well as the first instalment of Livi's invaluable travel guide. A note: sadly, our cries of laughter halfway through the episode might have broken one of the mics, so towards the end of the episode, there is a lot of white noise. The content stands, but if you don't like listening to your podcasts like you're holding a shell up to your ear, we understand!
