June 26 - World Cup 2010 in South Africa

South Africa hosted the 2010 World Cup tournament, the first African country to every host it. In this episode of AP we discuss a wide range of issues relating to the 2010 tournament, from the racism leading up to the World Cup and during it, the prospects for African teams in the 2010 tournament, and the political economy of the World Cup in South Africa. We interviewed Dr. Zubairu Wai, and played an excerpt of Raising Sand Radio interview with Dr. Patrick Bond (check out Raising Sand Radio). For more critical perspectives on the World Cup in South Africa, check out the radio blog: Calling +27, Got a Category 4 ticket to spare? at
