Viola Station 46 is a sprawling and topical look at Fiorentina right now

A chat with our old friend Bren of Chiesa di Totti is the cherry on top of this one.

The games are coming thick and fast for Fiorentina right now, so your favorite podcast idiots are back in the saddle. This time, we’re looking back at how the Viola have looked over the first part of the season and how they’ve emerged from the restart, which naturally steers the conversation into the transfer market.

With that out of the way, we also consider what this team’s expectations ought to be for the rest of the year. Then, ahead of a weekend clash with the Giallorossi, we got in a rollicking discussion with Chiesa di Totti’s Lord Commander Bren, who caught us up with everything happening in the Romaverse.

Along the way, we learn that Mike’s been brushing up his Italian, Tito’s view on the nature of eternity (which involves a certain Viola midfielder), and which 1990s kids sports movie applies to Roma this year. Big thank you to Bren, who’s got the best taste in track suit jackets and is a real mensch.

As always, we had a blast making this. A huge thank you goes to Producer Mike_Hines for making us sound smarter than we are, and to Windchime Weather for our theme music (and check out Nate’s other project Shaylee). 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. 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. Forza Viola!
