Dom and James spend a fascinating hour with former Wednesday keeper Chris Kirkland talking about his time with the Owls and much more, including:

-The moment he decided to leave the club as he was literally about to put pen to paper on a new contract

-Why he was relieved to lose the number one spot to Keiren Westwood

-The fallout from the Leeds incident including death threats and why he can't ever visit the city again

-His own battles with mental health and what he's doing to help others

-His new job - and hopes for the future

-Why he's climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

-His unashamed love for Liverpool... and Take That
