International Player’s Anthem: A soccer podcast.

A Longhorn, a Sooner, and an Aggie woke up early Friday and video chatted. What happened next will inspire you.

This week on the IPA Podcast, we welcomed guest soccer head and emerging weatherman, Rudy Pearce, a German-born Bundesliga fanatic. Regrettably, a Texas A&M grad and sympathizer. Pearce gave us a vital Bundesliga road map, and made a case for its excellence and emergence on the global stage. In two years, the Bundesliga will be on American cable. Now is the time to buy in.

Elsewhere, Stephen and I outlined our reactionary World Cup brackets, talked up our beloved Sporting Kansas City on the heels of their MLS Cup title, and got creepy about the U.S. Women’s National Team.
