Andrea Yoch of Minnesota Women's Soccer discusses the trials and tribulations of establishing an independent, community-owned women's soccer club

On this episode, which will hopefully help restore at least a tiny bit of faith in American soccer, Andrea Yoch joins the show to discuss the founding of Minnesota Women’s Soccer, the first independent women’s soccer club in the US, Why creating a team can be more fulfilling than reruns of The Office, how to go about creating a franchise and establishing a model, and what comes next as the club actively sells ownership shares to those who are interested! If you’d like to get involved, you can (and should) get more info at their funding site.
