**INTRODUCING A NEW DTALKS PODCAST PRODUCTION: '25 FOR 25'**

In Chapter IV: "Finally, I have a team" El Presidente himself, Fernando Fiore, shares his perspective on what it was like covering the Miami Fusion throughout their run in MLS. While hosting Republica Deportiva on Univision every Sunday he was uniquely positioned to push the Miami Fusion and Major League Soccer to a new soccer-loving audience.

Fernando shares the dismay he felt at losing both the NY Cosmos and the Miami Fusion, and why he's fervently pushed for broader acceptance of soccer in the United States to help grow the game globally.

Enjoy!


25 years ago, on March 15, 1998, the Miami Fusion kicked off their opening game in MLS' 3rd season, becoming one of the 2 expansion teams in this ever-growing professional league.

In 2001, despite putting together one of the best seasons in MLS history (at that point and arguably since), MLS made the decision to fold both the Fusion and their Florida neighbors, the MLS original franchise, Tampa Bay Mutiny.

While MLS soccer has returned to Miami in the form of David Beckham's Inter Miami, much has been discussed of "what could've been?" Had the Miami Fusion been allowed to stay and build. Indeed, what WOULD a Miami Fusion look like in 2023?

This podcast tells the story of the Miami Fusion through the voices of those who actually lived it. 25 interviews across 25 episodes charting the good, the bad, and the unbelievable.

In Chapter III: "Can you work with pros?" former assistant coach John Trask shares his stories of coaching the Fusion alongside Ray Hudson during both the 2000 & 2001 seasons.

John shares a few different unbelievable stories in this episode which include, but are not limited to, the following:

It's a truly incredible episode, and we cannot thank John enough for sharing his stories with us.

Enjoy!

What would you do if someone came back to the future to save the earth? No, we're not talking about the Terminator today (Looper maybe but no Arnold today), we're talking about 'We the Future' by fantastic author Cliff Lewis. In his book, Cliff details what might happen if someone from the future comes back to present day to teach us how we can help solve the climate crisis!

In this episode of the podcast, Cliff and Joe get into a fantastic conversation about Cliff's origins writing, what led him to write this book, how it's a moral imperative to "make the world a better place", and what we can all do to try and reverse some of the ways we've been contributing to the problem. 

It's an overall fascinating discussion, enjoy!

About Cliff Lewis

5V9A2273_3.jpg

Cliff Lewis is an author and speaker who helps young readers explore weighty subjects through the lens of a wild-eyed, pop culture-addled imagination. He also specializes in freaking out his neighborhood by dictating these stories into his phone while jogging before dawn. 


About 'We the Future'

JFP_FUTR_Poster24X36 (2).jpg

Ever since he learned about climate change, Jonah dreads a weather-beaten future where not even his asthma medication can save him. Luckily, a girl from that future arrives just in time to throw Jonah a lifeline. Sunny traveled back to the 2020s with a mission: Help Jonah launch a climate strike big enough to rewrite history. To do it, he’ll have to recruit his entire school before Halloween. Why so soon? Sunny won’t say. But how can Jonah win over 600 classmates when the only thing he dreads more than the end of the world is talking to other kids?

The debut novel by Cliff Lewis is a compelling introduction to climate science for any young reader unlikely to binge-read the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But, at its heart, We the Future is about more than the climate. It's about the practical steps that everyday kids can take to organize themselves for real world change.

What do you do when you're stuck inside due to a pandemic taking place across the world? You explore the woods near your house with your faithful canine companion!

And what do you do once you've explored those woods? Write a book about it!

In this episode of the podcast Joe welcomes legendary author, M.T. Anderson to the show to discuss his latest book "Elf Dog & Owl Head". A fiction youth book he wrote during COVID about his experiences exploring the woods with his dog. 

M.T. and Joe get into a discussion about literature, helping to shape future leaders through literature, and some advice for aspiring authors (among many other exciting topics)

Enjoy!

About M.T. Anderson

M. T. Anderson has written stories for adults, picture books for children, adventure novels for young readers, graphic novel adaptations of ancient French tales, and several books for older readers (both teens and adults). His satirical book Feed was a Finalist for the National Book Award and was the winner of the L.A. Times Book Prize. Both Time Magazine and National Public Radio have included it on their lists of the best 100 YA novels of all time. Another satirical science fiction novel, Landscape with Invisible Hand, has been turned into a movie starring Tiffany Haddish and Asante Blackk.

Anderson was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was raised in the nearby town of Stow. He has a BA from Cambridge University in England and an MFA in Creative Writing from Syracuse University. For many years he taught at Vermont College of the Fine Arts. He is a lifelong New Englander and lives in a small, haunted 18th century house in the hills of Vermont. 

About 'Elf Dog & Owl Head':

Clay has had his fill of home life. A global plague has brought the world to a screeching halt, and with little to look forward to but a summer of video-calling friends, vying with annoying sisters for the family computer, and tuning out his parents’ financial worries, he’s only too happy to retreat to the woods. From the moment the elegant little dog with the ornate collar appears like an apparition among the trees, Clay sees something uncanny in her. With this mysterious Elphinore as guide, he’ll glimpse ancient secrets folded all but invisibly into the forest. Each day the dog leads Clay down paths he never knew existed, deeper into the unknown. But they aren’t alone in their surreal adventures. There are traps and terrors in the woods, too, and if Clay isn’t careful, he might stray off the path and lose his way forever. Graced with evocative black-and-white illustrations by Junyi Wu, Elf Dog and Owl Head is heartfelt and exhilarating, wry and poignant, seamlessly merging the fantastic and the familiar in a tale both timely and timeless.
