    Day of Red Stars Past: Beginnings - Part Two

    Day of Red Stars Past: Beginnings - Part Two

    This one got a little loopy

    Welcome to part two of Days of Red Stars Past: Beginnings, where Sandra and Claire discuss the Red Stars' first win in the NWSL (against..Portland?) and the first match featuring Vanessa DiBernardo and Julie Johnston in 2014.

    They also discuss 2013 NWSL fashion, that one foul, what makes a captain, more fouls, and a player lost to the annals of early Red Stars history. Bear with us, y'all. Quarantine brain is real. Enjoy.

    We'll have the viewing guide for our next episode theme once we decide what we're doing, probably sometime this weekend. *

    *Also, tell us what you'd like to see! We have some solid ideas, but as this hiatus stretches on for however long, we'd love to hear what eras you guys are interested in hearing about.

    Stay safe, love y'all, enjoy

    Days of Red Stars Past: Beginnings - EP.1 (pt.1)

    This got slightly out of hand.

    Welcome to part one of Days of Red Stars Past: Beginnings. This part features a brief roundup on where the league is at in Covid-19 response, how we're holding up and what the Red Stars have been doing (spoiler it's content).

    We also set the stage for the beginning of the NWSL, and break down the circumstances that led to Chicago playing their first game against the Seattle Reign in April of 2013. It's a trip.

    We'll have Part Two ready to go for you guys in a couple days, where we discussed Chicago's first win, and the debuts of Julie (Johnston) Ertz and Vanessa DiBernardo.

    Ep: 64 Preseason Chatter is not what it seems

    Ep: 64 Preseason Chatter is not what it seems

    Our first uploaded episode to Anchor, how exciting! 

    Never has a podcast episode been in such danger of obsolescence so quickly. But we still want to share it with you! Yes, the covid-19 pandemic is altering everything right now, but more importantly there are new good Red Stars back in preseason camp, and the NWSL is going to be on TV this year (eventually). These are good things, and we need good things right now. We're going to figure this out together, y'all.
