With the Women’s World Cup Soccer tournament beginning it was a pleasure to have the soccer beat writer from The Philadelphia Inquirer, Jonathan Tannenwald, back on the podcast.
Topics discussed include the state of soccer, the state of MLS, how mostly it’s old white men like Zlatan Ibrahimović moving the MLS TV viewing and not the up and coming young Americans and South Americans, what it would take to get me to watch MLS, thoughts on Turner Sports’ coverage of UEFA Champions League. And of course, a big preview of the Women’s World Cup which includes the downsides of remote productions, Jonathan’s prediction to win it all, ratings predictions vs. 2015 and teams to watch.
