This week, our #NYTReadalong guest is Andrew Das, New York Times assistant editor for international sports. Neil Parekh is the guest host. Our focus: the World Cup.

Andrew is coordinating The New York Times’ coverage of the World Cup in Qatar. He’ll give us a behind-the-scenes look at how The New York Times is covering the tournament and we’ll review several specific pieces.

We’ll also take a look at the New York Times Magazine’s 10 Best Actors of 2022. It’s beautiful online as well as in print.


Here are the World Cup features we’ll focus on:

  • The World Cup Special Section Preview (.pdf 19 MB; NYT World Cup Coverage Online)

  • Andrew will break down the highly popular ”Spot the Ball” feature online. He helped choose the pictures that were used. (Gift Link)

  • John Branch, a former guest on the show, wrote about $200-a-night “rooms” shipping containers. (Link)

  • Tariq Panja and Bhadra Sharma have a great article on Nepali migrant workers who helped build the stadiums in Qatar. Many paid with their lives. (Link)

  • Andrew Keh has an article about the challenges of doing a beer run in Qatar. (Link)

  • Rory Smith and Tariq Panja wrote a piece about how country-specific head scarves are all the rage. (Link)

  • Sarah Lyall has a great review of the stadiums that were built for the World Cup. (Link)

  • Sarah also has a piece about how to pronounce Qatar. (Link)
