Tube Rats: Episode 45 – World Cup of Evil

In a World Cup Special, Tube Rats takes you on a trip through the murky, depressing world of professional football. Appropriately for a show in the midst of a World Cup in Qatar, this episode covers human rights abuse, sports washing and a production line which strips professional players of any potential to think for themselves.
