No surprises on the Los Angeles Football Club podcast front this week, as the shows are getting ready for the season. Here we gooooooooooooooo...
Dave Denholm has a nice interview with LAFC defender Steven Beitashour, and talks to writer Araceli Villanueva. This episode mostly revolves around LAFC although there’s a bit of other soccer talk, too, especially around Kepa vs. Sarri at Chelsea over the weekend.
MLSsoccer’s official podcast has now pivoted to video (although you can still listen in podcast format, too) and while the show focuses on the entire league, they interviewed “We are LAFC” executive producer Jon Weinbach on the new LAFC documentary on ESPN+. He talks about the “pee man” too, it’s not just me, ok.
The reporters, no surprise, are gearing up for the season too. They quickly recap the Vancouver friendly, and talk about the general expectations for the season, before previewing the season opener. One key point from Ryan Wallerson that was especially compelling: LAFC have relied very heavily on Carlos Vela in the preseason. Can the team around him chip in with goals, too, when the season starts?

The guys speak to Andrew Medina of Kicks to the Pitch, focusing on the culture around the sport. They got a dig in on SB Nation (shrug) but the teasing of Medina as he name-drops throughout the interview is entertaining.
Mr. @Drew_NearPost of @kickstothepitch fame stops by for this week's @FCFCPod — in addition to being the voice behind some of @LAFC's #StreetxStreet kit release promo, he's got LA + world football culture stories for days. #LAFCPodFam #LAFC — https://t.co/msi7bhv1tM— Alex Dwyer (@Adweezy) February 28, 2019
