Taylor talks to Grant Wahl about the many projects he has in the works.

Up first, they go deep on Grant's new podcast "Throwback," which takes an in-depth look at the many people involved in the USA's successful run at the 1991 World Cup. Subscribe to Throwback wherever you get your podcasts!

They also discuss Vincent Kompany's transition to management. Grant interviewed Kompany for a chapter in his book "Masters of Modern Soccer" and shares insight from their many interviews.

After that, Grant previews his new video series "Exploring Planet Futbol." In Part I, he travels around Germany to interview four Americans already involved in the Bundesliga: Chris Richards, Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie and Christian Pulisic. Who is most like to become a national team leader, how good of a driver is McKennie, and what does Pulisic order off-menu at restaurants? All that and more!
