What a SIMPATICO man Stu is! LOVED your interview with him. I had the chance of meeting him in late August of 2019 when I was in Portland, Oregon attending a THORN match on Saturday evening and then a TIMBERS match on Sunday evening. I was also in town to give a talk on my just-released book Women in American and Soccer and European Football: Different Roads to Shared Glory for which -- incidentally -- you had me on your podcast a few weeks before. I was having brunch with friends at my hotel on Sunday morning when Stu walked into the restaurant. We had a lovely chat: totally unpretentious, very kind, very nice. I have always liked the man's broadcasts -- and to think that some folks do not give him a chance by dint of his American accent! Wonderful interview, Grant, as per usual!
I am a huge fan. I want you and all my favorites on Substack. The downside is no audio engineer or producer or editor who says, "We can't post that. Somebody's hands or something else was all over the mic. The sound issues are not professional." I am going to keep paying and hope more people pay for your content.
I am glad! Am anxiously awaiting the next games he will be calling! Very nervous!
