Seville Special (from Rockford and Madrid)
David is somewhere in Spain and Todd is stuck in a meeting, but Shane kept the bald quotient of the show intact by bringing in Andrew Dickson to preview the Europa League Final. Some chat about sun cream; how Rangers got here; how much different this feels than 2008; what it means to the two guys who were there for that run; and more! SUPPORT THE CROpod! We made it easier.

Seville? Sweet!
It's the last CROpod before the madness unfolds, as Shane, David and Todd relive Rangers' Europa League semi-final win and look ahead to Seville. As per, Shane and David are both hanging on by a thread whilst Todd is just as fit and chipper as can be. How much can we love John Lundstram?; How badly has this further broken them?; How many '80s pop songs can you shoehorn lyrics into?; and much more! SUPPORT THE CROpod!

Questionable Content
Shane, David and Todd are back with an all-new episode of the CROpod!

CROpod Only Does It Midweek
Shane, David and Todd return as Rangers continue following the CROpod model of only showing up midweek. Post-mortem of a league campaign gone horribly wrong; outdoor planters as urinals; we're not the only club in the world dedicated to fucking stuff up off the park; let's just all go back to 1993; and more!

CROpod reaches the 100th episode milestone for the second time! Even though it probably already had a month or so back and we just can't count.

CROpod Brings You Technical Difficulties
What was supposed to be a banner episode for the CROpod is struck down by myriad problems, as Shane is ill, David's house is collapsing around him, and Todd--well--Todd is just fine, actually. Damn Canadian. But the boys still get through some chat about the war of the statements before David's 4G ushers him into the Phantom Zone. So Shane and Todd spend a little more time before deciding we'll just come back later this week to do an official 100th New CROpod episode!

Happy Birthday, Brian
For the first time in 250 episodes, the CROpod has fallen on one of those best of days, the birthday of Brian Laudrup. Shane, David and Todd mark the occasion by discussing Rangers' rampant Europa League victory over Dortmund; the less-than-stellar showing at Tannadice; the refs are still very very bad; why you should know which First Amendment you're trying to invoke in a court of law; and Russia's courtesy of waiting for the Olympics to end so as not to make it awkward.

(Something went wrong with this episode late last week where it stopped playing if you tried to listen to it anywhere but the actual website so I've sent it back out again for folks who may have missed it.) Shane's here for the latest (second) installment of the CROpod's Second Hand News show, looking at the thing that keeps Michael Stewart and SSB on the airwaves: the referees. Unfortunately, VAR or a better disciplinary system won't solve the problem that the officials we have are just bad and the SFA and SPFL have no plans to fix that.

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.
