    2020 Year in Review Pt II: Fall Series, Saying Goodbye, and Saying Hello

    2020 Year in Review Pt II: Fall Series, Saying Goodbye, and Saying Hello

    In the second part of our 2020 year in review, Southside Trap is back with our F/H/C and pal John D Halloran to talk through the Fall Series (what was it, really?), a trade that saw some beloved Red Stars leave the team, and also a deep dive into Chicago's newest move for Mallory Pugh and Sarah Woldmoe. What a year, on to new things.

    2020 Year in Review Pt I: Drafts, Uncertainty, and a Cup Challenge

    2020 Year in Review Pt I: Drafts, Uncertainty, and a Cup Challenge

    2020, it certainly was a year. This week, Southside Trap sat down with our Chicago Outfit friend, homie, and colleague John D Halloran to talk through the Chicago Red Stars year that almost wasn't. In Part I, we talk the 2020 NWSL Draft, the tumultuous month of March, and a tournament in Utah that wasn't all that bad.

    After Hours: Holiday Edition

    Nobody asked for this, but we did it anyway! This week, Southside Trap did not discuss a single soccer related thing, instead we dove deep and went in on the the new modern holiday classic(?), Happiest Season. Join us for this holiday movie discussion!

    After Hours? Episode 4

    After Hours? Episode 4

    We took another tour around women's soccer this week, but it wasn't necessarily easy, breezy, or all that beautiful. We talked USWNT dominance, a very tough week in allyship, and how it feels kinda weird but also definitely not bad to have our new old midwestern frenemies back.

    After Hours, Episode Three

    It's the holidays, and therefore time to talk about...soccer? This week we commemorate a legend, find out who was the best American player in 2020, talk about what we're grateful for and put together an All-Star Thanksgiving XI, in addition to conversations about the USWNT and the new NWSL season framework

    "It allows us to now go forward" - A Conversation with Rory Dames

    "It allows us to now go forward" - A Conversation with Rory Dames

    The Red Stars made some big moves recently, and we had to have Head Coach Rory Dames on the pod to talk about it. Southside Trap discussed with Dames the ending of the Challenge Cup, what (and who) developed during the Fall Series, how Expansion Drafts are difficult for everybody, what Louisville has in front of them this week, and what Chicago wants to do now.

A podcast for all friends, homies, and colleagues

If you love the Red Stars, you want to listen to Southside Trap. This podcast doesn’t just give you game analysis (which it does), it doesn’t just offer insight on rosters, trades, and team staffing (which it does)— but it also is an integral part of the Red Stars community and culture. Sandra and Claire will make you proud to be a Chicago Red Stars fan.
