    This was a huge downgrade in what you guys used to do. I loved listening to you guys every week with your analysis but now you are analyzing analysis. I know you are trying to find a unique spot in a sport that has so many analysis shows but why not get away from just analyzing the premier league and take more time to analyze other European leagues? That would be something that’s needed.

      We wanted the podcast to be in sync with the website, which focuses on where and how to watch soccer on TV and online.

    Yes American soccer coverage sucks, but we don’t need a podcast about it. What happened to the premier league talk?

      The last episode of World Soccer Talk in its previous format was in October. There are a ton of great soccer podcasts out there that cover the Premier League. We recommend The Front 3, which includes Laurence McKenna and Kris Heneage.

      The new podcast doesn’t focus on why/how American soccer coverage sucks. There’s a lot of great things happening (positive things, may I add) in the soccer landscape. The pod is meant to be about watching soccer on TV, online and via apps.

        I listened to this podcast for years for premier league news because it was the best. The hosts were supremely educated on players, club history, and tactics. Feels like a betrayal of this podcast’s fans to focus on something so obscure for what (for lack of any explanation given by anyone on the podcast) I can only guess is promotion of marketing partnerships. Looks like I will have to try another, and I will try The Front 3. Maybe your podcast is not about how American coverage sucks, but a lot of what I heard expressed in this episode was how the new DirectTV service didn’t have coverage as good as was expected, and how frustrating it is for fans of certain leagues to actually watch games. This is a critical post. However, I think I speak on behalf of a lot of former fans of the podcast, so I feel justified. I get you need to make money, but the concept behind this podcast makes it unlistenable for me. It’s a shame you can’t promote apps and services whilst providing also continuing to provide insightful, relevant content about the world’s top teams. I apologize if I’m wrong in my assumption that money is the motivation for the change, but that’s how it comes off.

          We explained the reasons for the change in podcast format on a blog post from a couple of months ago at Also, I believe Kartik spoke a little bit about the change on the last podcast episode, which was with Laurence guest-hosting while Nipun was away on vacation.

          We changed the podcast format to be more in line with the website, which is focused on TV coverage, schedules, streaming, etc. It wasn’t about money.

            Okay then. I guess now I just really don’t understand why there was a need to force it into the mold of the website. If its not broke don’t fix it is my perspective. Anyway, I wish you the best with the new format.
