Podcast: Kaká’s Orphans

The past two weeks have been so busy for Milan: qualifying for the Champions League, closing out the mercato with surprise signings, and now the brief lull of an International Break. In fact, there was so much going on, this podcast has been “Super Sized” to fit it all in. But above all of the craziness, one thing stands out: The return to the San Siro of Kaká’s orphans. As you will hear in the podcast, they are intrinsically linked to every aspect of Milan’s success this year, at least according to Galliani.

Returning this time is a podcast favorite, David. A Milan season ticket holder, a would-be Kaká orphan, only he actually never left the San Siro, and huge fan of the Italian National Team, he was the perfect guest for these changing times. He also has a fantastic site acmilanfinance.com that has everything related to Milan finances conveniently in one place and all in English. Today we talk about:

• News of the Week: Milan Glorie, NASA update, Niang forgotten, Galliani Day™, Kaká’s Orphans
