Recently I was asked by a good friend of mine, Carlos Mojica, about creating a logo for a new podcast to be called Enganche. Carlos wanted to look at football (or soccer, whichever you prefer), in a different way than all the other football pods out there. He wanted to explore the ways football impacts life off the pitch as well. I feel like I'll mess up the message, so I'll take it from Carlos himself on Enganche's website:
Enganche is a bi-weekly podcast that explores the cultural, historical, and societal aspects of soccer. Too often the aspects of the sport that occur off the field are neglected in favor of what happens on the field, so each episode we tackle one topic in an attempt to link soccer and culture.
Because we recognize that we are not experts in all of the topics discussed, we often reach out to experts of different disciplines in order to supplement our knowledge. If you're looking for a podcast that simply reviews the latest matches, you might want to look elsewhere. If you're looking for something more, you're in the right place.
If you're unfamiliar with the name sake of the podcast, 'Enganche', let me fill you in a little bit. The Enganche is traditionally an Argentinian role, the player heads the midfield and is responsible for the transitional play between the deeper midfielders and attackers. If you're familiar with the sport, I only need to mention one name for you to understand the role. Juan Román Riquelme. The former Argentinian star is the poster boy for an Enganche, but modern examples could include players such as Andrea Pirlo, or even Mesut Özil.
Check out the Enganche site, and check back for more posts, and of course, the pod!
