    Soccer: A conversation with @CaballosJuarez about FC Juarez and A remembrance of Mexico vs Germany in Russia 2018

    Soccer: A conversation with @CaballosJuarez about FC Juarez and A remembrance of Mexico vs Germany in Russia 2018

    In this episode I talk about two soccer stories. The first (02:00 - 19:32) is about FC Juarez, los Bravos, the surprising team from Juarez Chihuahua that in their second tournament at the top level of Mexican soccer is succeding and beating teams way bigger than it. I'm joined by @CaballosJuarez to discuss the team's history and how they find themselves near the top of the table as well as what they mean for the region. Then I read an article written right after Mexico defeated Germany in the 2018 World Cup (20:35 - 29:02) to highlight what a victory like that meant to me.


    Hope you enjoy!

    This year marks the 20th anniversary of the First Erik Morales vs Marco Antonio Barrera fight. These fights were among the best in boxing history and represented so much about Mexican culture beyond boxing. In this episode I'm joined by Boxing expert Roberto Jose Andrade Franco, PhD candidate and Contributing Editor to D Magazine to talk about these fights, these boxers, and Mexican boxing as a whole.
