So LAFC. Much soccer. Let’s check out some of the podcast highlights from around Los Angeles Football Club over the last week.
A couple shows had notable guests this week, including FCFC, who had a long interview with Patrick Aviles, aka “LAFC Pat,” the club’s supporter relations guy. If you have been to just about any LAFC events the last couple years, Pat is pretty well known, but if you want to get to know him, you’ll find out about his soccer journey, how he found out about the job (turns out scrolling twitter is good sometimes) and how he got the gig. It’s a good listen.
Defenders of The Banc
Filly and The Scarf also have a guest this week, as they welcome “El Catrin Muerto,” pictured above, whose persona as a “Day of the Dead Dandy” comes with a pretty poignant backstory. You’ll find out how he developed his look, what he makes of beer showers in light of all that makeup (a valid concern), and what he does away from LAFC games.
Heart of LAFC
Jerry and Josef recap last week and at the end, offer a quick preview of the first elections for The 3252, taking place on Sunday. If you’ve been on social media this week, you’ll see the lobbying and promotion of various candidates by Supporters’ Groups, so it’s a new step in the history of LAFC’s own Independent Supporters’ Union.

This show is from Monday, so it’s a bit outdated as it came before the Columbus Crew SC friendly, but Alex, Ryan and Josh give you the tidbits that beat writers can, including the initial news that Baggio Husidic left LAFC camp, and why.
Shoulder 2 Shoulder
The guys recap game action, but near the end of their show this week, speak briefly about a tour they took last week, which included some time in LAFC’s locker room and some facetime with Mark-Anthony Kaye. You can check out some photos from that on their social media.
