MLS and the Election: Who Are You Voting For?
On this episode of The Movement, host and former MLS player Calen Carr examines the issue of voting rights in America, and travels to Pennsylvania to see how the Black Players for Change and the Philadelphia Union opened their stadium as a three-day voter service center, despite opposition. Carr speaks with players and figures across the leagues and reflects on his own political experiences as a player, all with the goal of determining one single but complicated idea: the value of a vote.
Black Players for Change: This Is Not Your Distraction
In the debut episode of The Movement Podcast, host and former Major League Soccer player Calen Carr examines how the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and others influenced the Black Players for Change, a group that orchestrated a boycott of nearly all MLS games on one historic night in August. Carr speaks with former teammates and friends about their experiences as Black men in America, and how the BPC has raised awareness of racial injustice and police brutality in the United States.

Great podcast: provocative about a subject we need such depth in learning about, as well as pleasureful to hear such human accounts and optimism among so many. Artistically its a great sound, with music and other aspects really integrated.
