In just a few weeks, South Africa will host one of the largest and most scrutinized sporting events in the world: the World Cup. It’s extremely rare for an African country to host an event that draws so many people from so many other countries. But some people feel that the soccer tournament will also illuminate many of the racial and social divides left over from the Apartheid era.

Guests

  • Franklin Foer Editor, The New Republic; author "How Soccer Explains the World: An (Unlikely) Theory of Globalization" (Harper Perennial)
  • Samson Mulugeta Journalist based in Johannesburg, South Africa
