About Suffering From Joy

Suffering From Joy was built to explore the common bond between fans across many teams, sports, cultures, and intensities that keeps these fans coming back for more, no matter how many times their team hurts them.

While we specialize in soccer, ice hockey, and (American) football; the podcast will at times explore different sports and fandoms. We'd love to hear from you (@sufferingpod on twitter and instagram) about your team or sport and the passion you have for your lovable losers.

VERDE episodes will cover Austin FC, including instant reaction podcasts.
