The podcast game is ever-increasing, with two new shows featured this week that relate to Los Angeles Football Club. I’m currently taking sponsorships to support my listenership of this bumper crop of shows.
Back to Back
New show alert! Jordan Harvey and Steven Beitashour team up for the second LAFC player podcast. They are both fullbacks, hence the name, and their first guest is LAFC GM John Thorrington. Harvey admits off the top the audio isn’t great, as it sounds like it was recorded in the world’s most cavernous bathroom, but the actual content is good. Thorrington opens up on some topics we haven’t heard before. Sounds like another good entry to #LAFCPodFam.

Are We LAFC?
Another newish podcast in the PodFam is Are We LAFC? Three fans get together for a loose, freewheeling chat, with episodes clocking in at a nice time. One warning: A lot of swearing, so beware at work and/or around kids.
New episode is live! Subscribe, listen, and enjoy! San Jose is made fun of early and often. #LAFC #LAFC3252 #LAFCPodFam #lafcvsanjose #ShoulderToShoulder— AreWeLAFC? (@AreWeLAFC) April 4, 2019
Dave Denholm’s ESPN radio show has not only Bob Bradley but also Jordan Harvey on this week. Bradley sounds like he’s in good spirits, but for the record, his “podcast” remains in-family only (I think he may just be talking about Facetime? Who knows). Harvey promotes his new show (podception!) and talks the good start, referencing some of the topics he brought up in our recent interview with him.
Defenders of the Banc
The Scarf is back in town, as he joins Filly and they talk the San Jose win and discuss efforts in the works to create a new veterans LAFC supporters group.

Heart of LAFC
In their first episode of the week, Jerry and Josef talk the San Jose win, with Josef, who was at the game, supplying lots of supporters color of the experience at Avaya.
Episode 071 - Cinco A Cero— Heart of LAFC (@heartoflafc) April 2, 2019
Today, Jerry and Josef recap the 5-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes and talk about the amazing supporters that traveled to SJ. Did the 3252 break an MLS record?
In their second episode they gear up for the D.C. United clash, and talk about some of the community efforts happening around the supporters these days.
Episode 072 - Rooney United— Heart of LAFC (@heartoflafc) April 3, 2019
Today Jerry and Josef preview the upcoming match versus DC United and also answer listener questions! Top of the West versus Top of the East! Get ready for a great match!
LAFC Season Pass
The reporters talk the Quakes win, preview the D.C. United game, and discuss Carlos Vela’s case to be MLS Player of the Month as well as the fact that LAFC do not appear to be completely reliant on the star. It’s a delightful paradox for LAFC.
Early pod this week: @yay_yee, @RCWallerson & @Adweezy recap San Jose, & possible seismographic activity, they also preview @LAFC's visit to @dcunited who made @AudiField a tricky place to play and have conceded just 1 goal in #MLS this year — https://t.co/6cuc61LnHn— LAFC Season Pass Podcast (@LAFCSeasonPass) April 2, 2019
Max and Vince chat about San Jose and D.C., Max’s promotional trip to Mexico, the secret weapon of Eddie Segura’s early emergence and more.
Get ready for the top of the table clash this weekend between @LAFC and @dcunited... and hear Max's Mexico stories (they involve a horse, street tacos, and a dog... trust me, just listen!) #LAFC https://t.co/jcKOiRRTk7— Vince La Rosa (@LAFCvince) April 6, 2019
The guys welcome Karla Villaseñor, a supporter who was part of this year’s MLS Soccer For All campaign. She talks about her journey into soccer, her interest in jerseys and much more.
Time for another backyard pod. This time we feature Futbol Karla — of @LAFC3252 & @MLS #SoccerForAll fame. She schools us on Liga MX, Adidas, liberation theology, proxy wars & so much more. Wine glasses were involved & you're invited: https://t.co/cUloCfoetZ #LAFCPodFam #LAFC— FCFC Podcast (@FCFCPod) April 4, 2019
Shoulder 2 Shoulder
The guys welcome Jose Salcedo, an O.G., to the pod. They talk about the San Jose game, the ticketing issues for the game, and why the traveling support was quiet for the first four minutes of that game.
