This is an incredible episode, and Cindy, Ryan and I are stoked to be able to bring it to you. You are already well-acquainted with her voice. Today’s special guest is Carla Swensen-Haslam, the Utah Royals FC Media Manager and color commentator for the team. We talk immigration, Colombian pride, soccer in refugee communities, being a role model, the transition from college soccer to professional broadcasting, the fine line that is public relations, the typical workday, player scouting, the NWSL draft, and much much more.
Many thanks to Andy Munoz for mixing this one.
