A Liverpool FC podcast, hosted by two Ohioans named Adam and Thomas. We talk Liverpool, dream about going to Anfield, and throw in some domestic/international footy talk from time to time.
We call the sport football, soccer, futbol, and footyball interchangeably.
Episode 5 - Lallana Fan Fiction
In episode 5, we talk about the season to date. Adam starts a mysterious stopwatch at the beginning of the show. What does the stopwatch mean?! Is he trying to keep us on task? You won't know until you listen! We break down how the season has gone so far, talk about how the easy Man City Champions League draw and introduce a new segment called "Small Club City" where we discuss the controversy surrounding the Kompany testimonial.
Episode 4 - Season Preview
Adam and Thomas welcome Matt as an official member of the Rust Belt Reds cast, and then at 59 minutes and 34 seconds, they wonder what monster they've created. In this episode, we talk about the first match against Norwich, discuss ceilings of Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, guess our first team superlatives (top goal scorer, team mvp, biggest surprise), give our top 6 predictions and talk about our time in South Bend.

Episode 2: The Chaaaaampiooooons
In episode 2, we talk the Champions League final against Tottenham. We welcome Columbus Spurs member Bryant Caves to discuss his thoughts on the final, plans for Tottenham, and what he's afraid about with this Liverpool squad.

Thank you for listening!
Episode 1 - Season Review
In our first episode, we break down the week that was in LFC fandom: Origi Newcastle magic, Vincent Kompany, a historic night against Barca, and the last weekend of the season.
Adam and Thomas share their LFC beginnings, league MVPs for 18/19, and much more.
Thank you for listening to two Ohio guys that have never been to Liverpool.
Rust Belt Reds - The Beginning
This episode of Rust Belt Reds was originally recorded back on April 6th, 2019. It was a one week veering away from a podcast called Rust Belt Running. The soccer hating co-host, Andrew, took the weekend off to go on a cruise.
Adam and I enjoyed doing the podcast so much that we decided to turn it into a full-fledged podcast. So consider this the Family Matters to Rust Belt Running's Perfect Strangers (aka a spin-off).
In this episode we talk about #SaveTheCrew, our predictions for the end of the PL season (SPOILER ALERT: ADAM GETS IT WRONG), share our CL predictions and play a fun word association game.
But don't trust us saying it's fun. Decide for yourself by listening!
Thank you for listening.
