The best place to get information about the USL is often times from the fans that are passionate about their local team or the league their team plays in. To help you find some of these independent news sources we’ve compiled this list of mostly fan-run podcasts for the USL and the individual teams. This list is constantly in flux, so if you know of a pod we’re missing or if one of these pods dies, or we need to correct a mistake- let us know so we can update the list as necessary. A big thank you to the people that give their time and energy covering their teams- we’re all thankful for your work.
