A breezy but satisfying short introduction to the sport of kings. Performer David Whiteley's voice is precise and pleasant, with a light Australian accent, while electronic music adds texture to the recording. Listeners learn about the ancient history and culture of the sport, the role of colonialism in its propagation, its many rules, the importance of safety, and its global appeal. This would be a useful listen for anyone thinking of taking up the sport, or attending a match for the first time.
