The fourth Sport in History Podcast brought to you by the British Society of Sport History in association with the Institute of Historical Research is in a new format! Over the summer break I'll be interviewing a variety of researchers in sports history before bringing you a series of podcast specials from the BSSH's conference in September.
The first interview is with podcast regular Dr Raf Nicholson of Bournemouth University. Raf talks to me about her work as a journalist covering women's cricket and how this fits in with her academic work researching the history of the women's game in the UK. Raf talks about the relationship between the development of the women's game and its relationship with the feminist movement, as well as discussing how she uses oral history in her work. We also discussed the implications of the D'Oliveira Affair for women's international cricket. Listen out too for some trash talking of the 1990s men's cricket team!
