Deep and thorough
I don’t listen to every episode because some are on topics beyond my footballing interest but each episode is incredibly detailed and well researched. Kudos for really filling a niche spot with this one.
What a great job done by Justin Sousa interviewing Mark McKenzie from the Philadelphia Union. Informative and a pleasure to listen to.
