Baddiel & Skinner's World Cup Podcasts
Baddiel & Skinner's hilarious World Cup 2010 podcasts from South Africa

Fantasy Football League was a British television programme hosted by comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel. The programme began on BBC Radio 5 before transferring to BBC 2, with three series being broadcast from January 1994 to May 1996 (followed by episodes during Euro 1996). The show then moved to ITV for live specials on alternate nights throughout 1998 World Cup and then again through the 2004 European Championship.

It's not known if the show is ever likely to return. In its absence, Baddiel and Skinner instead went on to produce a series of podcasts for The Times, documenting their experiences while travelling across Germany at the 2006 World Cup. The success of these podcasts led to the duo being signed by Absolute Radio, to hosted a similar show from South Africa during the 2010 World Cup.

These podcasts, both hilarious and heartbreaking, chart Baddiel and Skinner's highs and lows as they follow Fabio Capello's England World Cup 2010 mis-adventure amidst a cacophany of vuvuzelas.
