Carl Anka: You Are A Champion


In this episode of Logroll I spoke to Carl Anka, writer for the Athletic, about his book You Are A Champion, which he wrote with professional footballer Marcus Rashford. It is a book for children, so we talked about getting the tone right, as well as lots about how you get hired for a project like this, and how to balance the needs of the writer, famous co-author and publisher. It was recorded way back in summer of 2020, so some of the football references are dated.You can buy Carl and Marcus’s book, You Are A Champion, here:https://uk.bookshop.org/books/you-are-a-champion-how-to-be-the-best-you-can-be/9781529068177He also recommended Stuff You Should Know by Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant, which you can buy here:https://uk.bookshop.org/books/stuff-you-should-know-an-incomplete-compendium-of-mostly-interesting-things/9781409199380Finally, here’s a link to my books: https://uk.bookshop.org/contributors/andrew-hankinsonThanks for listening.

From the archive - Carl Anka

Man Marking

Where we're going, we don't need roads . . . Today's dive into the archive sees us going all the way back to March of 2020, and the first interview we ever conducted. On that day, we spoke to the wonderful Carl Anka.  At the time Carl was the Southampton correspondent for The Athletic. Since then, Carl has written a book with Marcus Rashford, appears regularly as a contributor on some of the countries premiere football podcasts, and is now the Manchester United correspondent for The Athletic. We discussed Carl's early life, his difficulties with mental health, and attitudes towards mental health across differing races.  It was an honour and a pleasure to spend some time in Carl's company.   We hope you enjoy our first dive back in time . . .
