For Soccer Ventures Debuts Orange Slices, Hosted by Emerging USMNT, Phila Union star Mark McKenzie
FC Bayern, American International Chris Richards & Former U.S. National Team Midfielder Maurice Edu First Two Podcast Guests
The first two episodes feature 2020 Bayern Munich defender and current UEFA Champions League player Chris Richards, and former U.S. National Team and Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu. Both will discuss their experiences playing abroad, representing American soccer to global audiences, their personal and professional challenges, and the effort to rebuild the fan base and trust of the National Team after the tumultuous 2018 World Cup Qualifying campaign. The two shows will debut on all podcast platforms, including Spotify and iTunes on December 9th.
"Our goal with 'Orange Slices' is to dive deeper into the challenges and opportunities facing the current generation of players as both elite athletes and outspoken personalities in a time of global cultural change," Pearce, who is also FSV's Chief Creative Officer, said. "My role is to provide Mark and our guests with a bit of perspective on where we've come from as a soccer nation, and to help guide a lively conversation that takes fans beyond the on-field discussion. Our athletes have a lot to say, and this podcast provides a megaphone to connect with the diverse soccer community in this country."
"It's exceedingly rare for an up-and-coming player like me to have the platform not only to share my experiences with the Union and the USMNT, but also those of my peers, who may actually have a very different experience themselves,"
Through rotating segments, the show will explore the unique culture of American soccer.
