This week’s episode of the Press Row Podcast brings together a full panel to discuss FIFA – namely, EA’s relationship to the embattled global organization and the reaction to the recent announcement of the inclusion of women in this fall’s FIFA 16.

It’s a spirited debate that goes in several unexpected directions.
