Baseball Is Weird — CROpod Explains America
Baseball Is Weird — CROpod Explains America
Baseball has long been the national pastime of the US, and because one has so much time to kill while it's being played, baseball is pretty damn weird. Colin doesn't get it and Shane is here to do his best in a new CROpod Explains America. Pick off throws, anthem standoffs, fans interfering in the games, and why cheating is okay! Until it's not. The very nature of the sport lends itself to any number of ridiculous scenarios cropping up, and because it's been around for so long, almost all of them have at least once.  SUPPORT THE CROpod!

It's The CROpod College Football Spectacular!
A full day of CROpod content comes to end as Shane is joined by H&H regular and Nolecast host Ingram Smith to discuss why we love college football so much. Not missing a chance to score points, Shane reminds Ingram of the 1998 National Championship game as often as possible as both the guys are living vicariously through glory years for their respective programs gone by. But the pair find common ground on the unique social experience that is NCAA football, especially in the south. SUPPORT THE CROpod!

Broken Legs And A Broken Sporting Body: A Conversation With Jon Townsend
Shane's back for a wide-ranging chat with his sometime drinking-buddy and fellow-American Jon Townsend. A tragic history of their own injuries and experiences throughout the various levels of local football in the USA before an update on Jon's book, It's Just A Ball: Exploring The Complexity Of A Simple Game.  In Part 2, the guys talk about the problems that US Soccer is suddenly having to face after years of ignoring them, namely the building of a culture that has tolerated and even encouraged the grooming and sexual abuse of young athletes.

Todd tells us about how horrible it was to be on holiday in paradise because it was slightly windy one day, and David has his regular list of complaints about Liverpool.

The Ally McCoist Show ft. Americans In The Champions League — Second Hand News
Saturday's result has made the days off before Tuesday a little easier to get through, but Scottish referees have an answer to the good feelings: VAR! Shane's still not sure how that would fix the match official's performance we saw for Rangers' win at Hearts. Robbie Neilson thinks the ref could've done more to make Cammy Devlin a better person; Ally McCoist couldn't be a better person; and our American players are better than anyone else's in Europe.

Well, that certainly made the weekend seem a lot better, didn't it? Rangers rolled out comfortable winners at Tynecastle Saturday with a 4-nil victory to maybe take some momentum into Anfield for Tuesday's Champions League tie. Antonio Colak keeps banging them in; Alfredo Morelos never lost it; and Ryan Kent nearly equals his goal tally from last season. Plus, Steven McLean had a bad one but even he couldn't get the one big decision wrong, and Liverpool struggle at home with Brighton. It's Second Hand News on the CROpod! SUPPORT THE CROpod!

Do We Actually Have To Go Back To The Football?
The international break is over and we've got to get ready for the return of Gio's Rangers at the weekend and the bomb scare of Anfield next week. But Peter is back for his last shift filling in for Todd, and Shane and David are happy to fill him in on the past 30-plus years of culture. The economy is in the bin and the UK is seeking out the techniques of a guy who destroyed the US equivalent fully four decades ago; The Wall is a terrible movie with a very good soundtrack; the club just keeps making us all mad every single day; after conquering Andy and Rob like Donetsk, Shane sets his sights on the rest of Heart & Hand; and bad opinions about dugs from a listener.

Why Do Sports Teams Move All The Time? — CROpod Explains America
Why Do Sports Teams Move All The Time? — CROpod Explains America
American sports teams love to move house—they always have, and it's something almost wholly unique to the country's sports leagues. Colin wants to know why, and Shane is here to once again hurt his brain with the explanation. A little chat about the hurricane that ravaged Florida on Wednesday and why a very smart man whose ideas have been proven absolutely terrible around the world is now ravaging the economy of the United Kingdom before Shane lays out a century-plus of American sports teams moving wherever whenever for whatever reason.

Fans hear all the time about the true "stakeholders" in football whether it be from Rangers or the governing bodies of the game. But who are the stakeholders those voices are actually beholden to?

Watergate at 50: Pardons and Postscript
Watergate at 50: Pardons and Postscript
First, no one knew how to actually go about removing a president from office. Then, no one knew what to do when the president had left the office. In Episode 9 of the Watergate at 50 series, Shane and David are back to recount the tumultuous first few weeks of the new administration, one failed from the start by the one it had just succeeded. An unelected Gerald Ford is suddenly thrust into the biggest job in the world and struggles with what to do with the lingering question of the legal ramifications for Richard Nixon. He settles on a "full, free and absolute pardon" of the former president, but that decision raises questions that the House Judiciary Committee calls on Ford to answer. Plus, Nixon struggles for answers in his own interview with a British journalist hanging onto his career, and the 37th president has to pave a new path post-White House that no one before him had ever gone down.

Some Actual Facts and Context About The Sky SPFL TV Deal — Second Hand News
Despite (or perhaps owing to) the best efforts of its biggest proponents, the proposed contract extension between the SPFL and Sky for broadcast rights continues to look worse. One club chairman came out over the weekend saying analysis of the deal had lacked facts and context—and then flat out lied about the facts of the deal while providing the kind of context one expects from the diddy clubs. At the end of the day, they're going to find a way to force this thing through and then tell us all that they listened to our concerns.  SUPPORT THE CROpod!

The international break drags on, but on the plus side, there's no Rangers to talk about for Shane, David and Peter on this week's CROpod. At least no football; you can't get through an international break anymore without Rangers coming along to really annoy you about something. Crossover-content as Richard Nixon made some headlines this week, plus we say goodbye to Lewis Macleod in a manner about as brief as his shining moments for the club. Most of the second half is spent tackling listener questions, which means of course that we begin to answer questions and then reminisce about World Cups of yore.

Some quick Rangers deadline day chat before how paying for university even begins to work in the US. Colin can relate for a while, then Shane breaks his head with the tale of how we got to this spot in the first place. But some good news at the end—kind of. When you've buried an entire generation in insurmountable debt, how much good news can there be?

Second Hand News: Debriefing The Media Briefing
Second Hand News: Debriefing The Media Briefing
Shane is back for another quick round of Second Hand News as the transfer deadline looms. Seeing as we have one fit striker and what should be piles of cash per the board's own notes, it's disappointing some are spending time worrying about what's being said in the press. Plus, the whole briefing strategy lately has been a bit short-sighted and misguided, and Scottish refs continue to be terrible but at least it benefited Rangers this time. SUPPORT THE CROpod!

Rangers From Sea to Shining Sea: Portland Timbers 1976
Rangers From Sea to Shining Sea: Portland Timbers 1976
Rangers returned to North America in 1976 for the first time in more than two decades, embarking on a five-stop tour beginning in the Pacific Northwest. As the USA geared up for its bicentennial and Gerald Ford was on the campaign trail in Portland, Oregon, Rangers rode into town (literally on the day) to take on the Timbers on 23 May. In the third episode of the Rangers From Sea to Shining Sea series, Shane Nicholson is joined by longtime friend of the CROpod Gary Havlin and brand new friend Don Cox to talk about the third matchday of the 1976 tour. How did Bruce Rioch's little brother almost not survive?; Was it really Jock Wallace that played peacemaker?; and Does Providence Park still have a feral cat colony? All that and more in this special episode!

More new CROpod material has finally arrived as Shane and Scotch ex-pat Colin are here to give their best effort at explaining America, and why not start with an attempt at one of the reasons our system of government is the way it is: there are way too many elections. Did you know Shane has to vote for his coroner? It's true! Or that in some years (and they plan this) there are three or maybe even four consequential elections all thrown together in the space of about nine months? Hell, Colin can be a party member and raise donations and everything but he can't vote. None of it makes sense, but is anything done to change it? Is it fuck. This is America, baby!

Despite all of his best and most illegal efforts, Richard Nixon's presidency is crumbling around him. And now, it's a matter for the US Congress to decide whether he's still fit for the office. In Episode 7 of their Watergate at 50 series, Shane and David are here to explain just what impeachment is, because people in 1974 didn't really know. Why had the nation avoided this for over a century?; Who was going to run this process in the House of Representatives?; What the [expletive deleted] is [expletive deleted]?; When would the president's Republican allies finally jump ship?; and How did we reach the final days of Nixon?

The Watergate story would never have been told without the relentless work of a number of journalists, not just Woodward and Bernstein. To that end, Shane and David are back in Episode 6 of their Watergate at 50 series to talk about the people left out of the history as told in popular culture. In this show, the guys introduce you to the city editor of the Washington Post, the man whose name was listed first on their Pulitzer Prize for coverage of Watergate, Barry Sussman. Plus, how all that leaking worked; how the media failed to make people care about the story before the 1972 election; how by the Spring the White House can't get out of the way anymore; and Leon Jaworski proves to be just as adept as his predecessor in the Special Prosecutor's office.

Shane and David are back for the second episode of their Watergate at 50 series with a rundown of the characters that made up the Nixon White House and the scandals they just simply could not stay out of. We meet the collection of southern California lawyers and PR men that surrounded the President throughout his time in Washington before diving into some of the scandals that preceded Watergate, including the one that really blew the covers off the White House's response to the break-in, the Pentagon Papers leak and the quest to destroy Daniel Ellsberg.

Shane, David and Todd are back on their normal schedules (except for one of us already having served the autumn time change while the other two wait) and here for a brand new CROpod! A little look back at Rangers trouncing Motherwell by a familiar scoreline for longtime listeners; the abject lunacy of dragging thousands of people from around the globe for a conference meant to reduce non-renewable energy consumption; why red zones aren't the fault of Rangers; and plenty more!

The Classic Rock Show: Exile On Main St.
Shane and David can't keep up with modern music. What better way to address their shortcomings than talking about albums that came out decades ago? By popular demand, here's the first episode of a new CROpod/Heart & Hand crossover, where two musical curmudgeons look back on some of the great classic rock albums of all time. And the guys went for one of the daddies of the genre right off the top: 1972's Exile On Main St. Shane and David talk about the Stones at the time, how they made the thing, why it still stands up today, and throw some songs in the mix because let's be honest: we'd all rather listen to Keith and Mick play, anyways.  This show is available via the CROpod and H&H networks.
