Sporting KC Show Podcast: Benny Feilhaber talks rising popularity of BS The Podcast

The Sporting KC Show Podcast, dropping throughout the season on Sports Radio 810 WHB, is now available on Spotify and iTunes. With Nate Bukaty, Aly Trost and Carter Augustine hosting the weekly program, Sporting fans have a place to go to catch up on club storylines, player achievements, guest interviews and more.


A familiar voice joined The Sporting KC Show Podcast on Tuesday night as hosts Nate Bukaty, Aly Trost and Carter Augustine welcomed midfielder Benny Feilhaber.

Best known for his exceptional on-field contributions to Sporting Kansas City, the United States Men's National Team and other clubs across Major League Soccer and Europe, Feilhaber has established a cult following of listeners this summer with the ever-rising popularity of BS The Podcast, a weekly program he hosts alongside former Sporting defender Sal Zizzo.

For the last four months, Feilhaber and Zizzo have welcomed a rich variety of guests from the North American soccer circle, ranging from MLS MVP candidate Carlos Vela and World Cup champion Emily Sonnett to serial goal scorer Chris Wondolowski and Kansas City native Andy Gruenebaum.

This time around, Feilhaber serves as the podcast guest, shedding insight on the process of finding compelling guests, getting them to open up and feel comfortable, and even touching on topics that make homepage news on ESPN FC and Sky Sports.

While Feilhaber serves as the centerpiece of the newest Sporting KC Show Podcast, Bukaty, Trost and Augustine save plenty of time to discuss the intriguing playoff race, Sporting's recent challenges and the final stretch of regular season matches.

Feilhaber will miss Wednesday's contest against Minnesota United FC with a quad strain. He will cheer his teammates on from the sideline as Manager Peter Vermes' men take the field at the new Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. CT on FOX Sports Kansas City Plus, FOX Sports Midwest Plus, FOX Sports GO, Sports Radio 810 WHB and La Grande 1340 AM.

Sporting must win in order to preserve their slim playoff hopes, while Minnesota can clinch its first-ever postseason berth with a victory of their own.
