Sporting KC Show Podcast: Johnny Russell on kids movies, distilleries, world traveling and epic goals

Running throughout the season on Sports Radio 810 WHB, the Sporting Kansas City Show is available on several podcast hubs including Spotify and iTunes as well as SportingKC.com/SportingKCShow. With Nate Bukaty, Carter Augustine and Aly Trost hosting the weekly program, Sporting fans have a place to go to catch up on club storylines, guest interviews and more.


Forward Johnny Russell was the star of Tuesday's new episode of The Sporting Kansas City Show, available for viewing above courtesy of the Sports Radio 810 WHB YouTube page.

Relaxing from the comfort of home, the Scottish international had a wide-ranging discussion with Nate Bukaty, Carter Augustine and Aly Trost that covered everything from kids movies and world travel to Scottish distilleries and his favorite goals. As a longtime fan of Scottish powerhouse Celtic FC, Russell did not hesitate when asked to pick out his top goal of all-time: Henrik Larsson's majestic nutmeg and chip against archrivals Rangers in a 6-2 Old Firm victory from August 2000.

The final segment of the podcast featured an interview with Sporting KC Vice President of Hospitality Nikki Romolo, who has played a leading role in the launch of Sporting Community Kitchen. Conducted in partnership with City Foods & Events and Operation BBQ Relief, Sporting Community Kitchen provides 1,000 free hot meals every weekday to citizens across Greater Kansas City affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Meal packs are available Monday through Friday via online registration, with curbside pickup at Children’s Mercy Park during designated times.

Sporting Community Kitchen is part of a newly established philanthropic platform called Sporting Serves, which will see Sporting Kansas City and The Victory Project—the club’s flagship charitable arm—join several community partners to provide relief to citizens across the metropolitan area in a unified response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
