Hello, faithful listener(s?). We’re back to bring you another episode of your favorite clueless narrators discussing all things Fiorentina. This time around, we’re talking about new managers—particularly Maurizio Sarri, but also a number of other options—and new sporting directors.

We also discuss the team’s relegation prospects, some notable Viola birthdays, Mike and Tito’s Wine Variety Hour, and who should be part of the core group going forward before seguing into a chat with the legendary Giancarlo Rinaldi (he’s written books!), who is the world’s preeminent English-language Fiorentina authority, to get his thoughts on the miserable situation in which the Viola find themselves. Along the way, we also learn about Mike’s Gen X cold open, Tito’s inability to pronounce German wines, and the inspiration for Giancarlo’s haircut. We had a blast recording it, so we hope you enjoy listening.

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. Hey, it can’t be any worse than actually having to watch Fiorentina play, right? Right? Right?
