Jeff Bell joined me for a first show. He is the director of the upcoming Sons of Ben documentary, which looks to be a terrific story on the guys who helped found the Union. We talk about how it all started in bars and on message boards, how the SOBs would go to away matches in New York and D.C. chanting “Philadelphia” before there was ever a team, and how it was hard for supporters, initially, to embrace Chester as the club’s home (and how that has all changed). We also discuss the process of putting together the documentary, getting it to market, and how services like iTunes and Netflix make it that much easier for filmmakers.
