After more than five years of waiting, the SBI Podcast is finally here.
We have put off running a podcast for some time but now we will be featuring a regular twice-weekly podcast co-hosted by myself and Garrett Cleverly (@azkicksit on Twitter).
Our inaugural show comes during the week of the 2013 MLS Draft, so who better to have as our first two guests than the two highest-rated players on the SBI MLS Draft Big Board? We were lucky enough to speak with Generation adidas signings Andrew Farrell (@louisville05) and Walker Zimmerman (TheWalkerZim). Farrell talked to us about how his Combine has gone so far, and even provides some insight into what could be the first speech delivered at the 2013 MLS Draft. Zimmerman catches us up on his injury, his chances of being a part of the U.S. Under-20 national team qualifying campaign, and what he will bring to the table as a 19-year-old centerback.
We also break down the USMNT roster and discuss the head coaching hires by Toronto FC and New York Red Bulls.
Give the inaugural episode of The SBI Podcast a listen and let us know what you think (and please keep in mind it is far from perfect, but we are hoping it is the start of something special).
Here it is, Episode One of The SBI Podcast:
