The economics have demanded that top flight football returns as Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc, but for this special episode we went down the leagues to investigate what happens to a semi-professional club that had its season derailed. It’s a story of community, crisis, hope, human spirit and a fear of the unknown at a club nicknamed The Beavers. They’re managed by a taxi driver, their ground is a mismatched work of art, they've lost all revenue, and their fans are lost without them. For this episode, we teamed up with Gimlet’s We Came to Win, and you can hear their story straight after ours. It’s called The Biological Bomb, and is a chilling look at the origins of a pandemic.
