In our inaugural episode we talk with Jason Hicks, founder of Niyakko Rush Soccer Club, and Goshen Carmel, Filmmaker and Niyakko Alum.

Niyakko Rush was started when Jason found a group of refugee children playing soccer in a dirt lot at their apartment complex. The kids didn't have proper grass or footwear, but the soccer would not be stopped.

Conflict in their native countries brought them to Colorado but football brought these kids together. Not speaking the same language or sharing the same culture, they found a common bond in soccer and they found a team with Jason Hicks.

This is the first episode of Footylosopher; a podcast meant to show you all the ways soccer explains life.
