By Association and The Blizzard are proud to present The Silenced Crowd, a podcast collaboration revisiting Richard Fitzpatrick’s excellent story— originally published in Issue 10 of The Blizzard and featured on Episode 40 of the podcast.
This time, The Silenced Crowd gets the By Association treatment, combining music and sound design to help tell the story. And it’s one that regular BA listeners will be familiar with, exploring a football match that involved Patrick O’Connell, who’s life and career we documented in Episode 05.
The Silenced Crowd examines the greatest scandal in British football in the first half of the twentieth century, as a group of players from two of the country’s greatest sides colluded to fix a match. Listen to the The Silenced Crowd.
