#22: Poppygate and Swindon Town with David Squires

David Squires joined us on the latest episode of the Nostalgia Ultras podcast to talk about his new book, Goalless Draws, a compilation of all his best work over the last four years.

The Guardian’s resident football cartoonist talks us through the process of trying to pick the best comics out of the 300 or so he’s drawn for the newspaper, why self-doubt can be a healthy tool a creator, and how to strike the right balance when drawing comics about tragics events, such as the recent death of the Leicester City owner.

We also touch on the insanity of Poppygate, James McClean, the death of satire, Emo José Mourinho, the unintentional hilarity of LinkedIn, and his beloved Swindon Town.
