With FIFA’s World Cup in full swing it’s hard to deny that soccer seems to be everywhere at the moment. This week on BTR Pulse, Sarah Fraser asks people if they’re watching the games, whether they think soccer is rising in popularity in the U.S., and whether it has any chance of ever surpassing more traditionally “American” sports such as baseball, football, basketball, or hockey.
Featured song: “shakedown” by Pink Mountaintops
