I'm back! I'm returning to the airwaves for the Winged Lions podcast to discuss everything FC Cincinnati! I've moved away from my podcast/blog site of Ohio Sports Gazette because I'm now a part of Chatterbox Sports, which covers high school, collegiate, and professional sports in the greater Cincinnati area. For information on Chatterbox and some of my contributions (both written and broadcast) visit www.chatterboxsports.com.
Alright, I'm discussing some of the moves and news from FC Cincinnati here in December. I will be trying to make a podcast every other Thursday throughout the off season and then probably get more involved with weekly podcasts coming your way during the season.
