Lineker & Baker: Behind Closed Doors podcast

Lineker & Baker: Behind Closed Doors

By Goalhanger Films  

'Lineker & Baker: Behind Closed Doors' will be a new regular show full of the intimate details of life in and around the game. If you’re looking for analysis of the weekend’s action, look elsewhere. This show will tell dressing room tales and green room stories from Gary and Danny’s time in football and broadcasting. Irreverent, at times preposterous, 'Behind Closed Doors' sees Gary Lineker abandon his usual role as chief interrogator. Instead he joins Danny Baker in a romp through life in the English game.
