Great NWSL podcast

I started listening to this when the Challenge Cup started. I thought the reviews of each game were great and gave great perspective to each game. I am a middle school soccer player playing for a club team and it is really great to be able to catch up on NWSL news while traveling or right now at home. Overall this is a great podcast and I look forward to it now every week and during the Challenge Cup every game day.
Thanks.
