The Total Soccer Show started in 2009, when Taylor Rockwell and Daryl Grove pitched the idea to WRIR 97.3 FM, an independent public radio station in Richmond, Virginia.

Starting with a small, local audience, the show has grown to be one of the most listened to soccer podcasts in the United States, remaining independent and successfully competing with some pretty big media organizations.
