Has there been a gnawing hole in your podcast oeuvre? Have you needed a true audible touchstone for the vaunted #PlayYourKids movement? Have you felt let down by the utter lack of Lord of the Rings references when taking an in-depth look at our youth development apparatus in America?
Then friends, this day is Your Day. The TopDrawerSoccer Show is nigh.
Not so long ago, we here at TDS and the fine dudes Taylor and Daryl at The Total Soccer Show began a dialogue. What if we mashed together the internet’s leading destination for all things development and the folks behind the No. 1 podcast crew in the country? Would a massive, somewhat horrifying bald eagle be born from the wreckage? Or would you simply have the new one-stop destination for All Things Soccer Youth?
I think we’ll just have the latter. But just to be safe, be on the lookout for an aggravated bald eagle roughly six times the normal size. I can’t promise what emerges from this podcast.
We’ll have regular episodes every Wednesday touching on just about every salient bit of developmental information regarding American soccer. MLS Homegrowns. U-World Cups. Up-and-coming USMNTers. Pay-to-play. The Development Academy. The girls club landscape. How The Tony Danza Show took a real dark turn there at the end. And only one of those is false!
To get you ready for the party, here’s our brief introduction to the show, which officially kicks off with our first episode on July 19. Steel yourselves, America. The TopDrawerSoccer Show is coming, not entirely unlike winter.
