A sports show even non-sports fans can enjoy!
I've never been a sports fan of any stripe, but some things are so good that they trump your personal biases. This podcast is such a thing.
Dave and Carol's on-air chemistry and palpable enthusiasm for the subject is something veteran podcasters and radio hosts aspire to, but to them, it all comes effortlessly. Wonderful sound quality and engaging hosts.
Do yourself a favor and give it a listen!
Informative and interesting for a new MLS watcher
This show will be great for even those newbies to the Football. The hosts really work well and the banter is great. I love to listen to people talk and this is now on my list.
As I new watcher of MLS this show might make me a fan.
I feel like they are my link
Carol and Dave feel like my link to fandom. They sound like old friends and listening to you guys once a week with Janine #253 Woot! It's my connection to a larger fan base. I have a severe anxiety disorder and I will probably never make a game. But my heart beats Green!
