A common refrain about LA sports fans is that they arrive late to games and leave early – we want to flip that on its head. Powered by the award-winning sports staff at the Los Angeles Times and helmed by veteran sports journalist Beto Duran, this podcast will smash the stereotype that our fans don’t have a passion for their sports teams. We'll provide in-depth interviews with the athletes, coaches, and front office personnel that drive our daily sports conversation. We’ll be there when you can’t – because our journalists always ARRIVE EARLY, LEAVE LATE.

Who is his role model? Why did he choose to come play for the LA Galaxy? From hardcore fans to casual fans, this episode features the Zlatan Ibrahimović interview and gives you a preview of what to look for in the 2019 MLS season.
