Only Here / May 1, 2019
Tijuana’s professional soccer team, the Xoloitzcuintles, have fans on both sides of the border.
In fact, the Xolos’ official tagline is “el equipo sin fronteras” — the team without borders.
Today, we talk to self-described “Gringo Xolos,” a growing group of fans in San Diego who are obsessed with the soccer team in Tijuana.
“Only Here” is about the unexplored subcultures, creativity and struggles at the U.S.-Mexico border. The KPBS podcast tells personal stories from people whose lives are shaped by the tension reverberating around the wall. This is a show for border babies, urban explorers or those who wonder what happens when two cultures are both separated and intertwined.
