Titanshane ,

Left-wing political podcast, with brief mentions of soccer

Tuned-in to find out about the latest soccer news and stories. Was very disappointed to hear nothing but left wing talking points justifying the systematic slaughter of babies. Totally bizarre far left propaganda outlet. Avoid.

Great

Witty and Grant do a tremendous job. Thank you.
