Excellent show

Talented hosts who are skilled at achieving what they set out to do. The most educational of the many FCC podcasts I listen to. I really learn a lot from these guys and have fun in the process. Thanks for all your hard work and preparation.

The Best FCC Podcast

This is the one to listen too. The only FCC podcast that actually breaks down the play on the field. I am a newer soccer fan and this podcast helps me have a better understanding of what I am watching on the field.
