End Credits: 23:26
The Southampton Dellivery Podcast is proud to support the work of Kick It Out as they work to tackle racism and discrimination in the game we all love. See how you can get involved at kickitout.org.
This week we are dipping back into the show archive to replay a conversation I had with Kiko Rodriguez back in the summer of 2017. Kiko, on Twitter @KikoRod9, is, among other things, a founding member of @DRNSport and JRod’s dad.
JRod isn’t the focus of the episode, though the links to Burnley and the upcoming match pair nicely. Kiko had struggled with his mental health for a period and he agreed to discuss it a little bit with me on the show. With so many people struggling with their mental health right now, including myself, I felt it was a good time to put it back in the feed. Hopefully, you find it uplifting and encouraging.
Also, a special thanks to Robbie @_SaintsinFrance for originally connecting Kiko and I and arranging for him to come on the show.

No matter what, just know you are not alone. Find someone to speak with, whether it’s your GP, a friend or family member, a counselor, or someone else. Sharing helps lighten the burden more than I can describe.
