Like your favorite trainwreck relative, we got you a late holiday present: Viola Station 31

Yep, it’s a podcast. No, it’s not going to be nearly as excruciating as hearing about your uncle’s struggles against the federal government.

Ho ho holy smokes, we’re just about at the end of 2021. As a belated holiday present, how about a podcast retrospective over the past year, and especially over the team since one Vincenzo “Cousin Vinnie” Italiano took the reins? We’ll look at the best and worst moments—and yes, a certain game against some Notts County cosplayers features prominently—but, because there’s nothing else you can talk about this time of year, we also dive into the mercato. That means predictions galore, which are always fun for us to make and for you to roast us for in another month.

The stars of the show, though, are ultra-talented VN staff writers Nick di Gruccio and Ben Lualdi, who braved the weather, the time zones, and a faulty internet switch (no, really) to share their thoughts on the season that was and that still is. Along the way, we learn that Mike is nosing in on Tito’s regular bit and that Tito may never recover. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed making this one. Feel free to get in touch with us via the website, on Twitter, or even by email, and feel free to leave us a rating on whichever platform you use to listen. Forza Viola!

As always, we had a blast making this. It was super fun talking to Nick and Ben in an official capacity and sharing it, since it’s normally just messages in the Slack room. A huge thank you goes to Producer Mike_Hines, and to Windchime Weather for our theme music. If the embedded podcast player isn’t present right above this paragraph, we implore you not to panic. Instead, you can check this episode out for free on Megaphone, Apple, Google, or Spotify. As always, thanks for listening, and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it. If you feel like it, give us a review on whatever platform you listen on.
