We are a podcast about the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer in America. Every week we analyse and criticize the heroics or he-low-ics of our favorite soccer team with all the knowledge of failed soccer players and the humor of failed comedians.
This week the Current starts with a look back at a Portland away draw that feels a lot more like a loss. Despite some outstanding Timbers goalkeeping, the Burgundy Boys should-a, would-a taken all three points from P.P. Park.
A long sought after Arsenal friendly finally takes place at the Dick and the Head Dick In Charge, Stan Kroenke is spotted in the box with his boy.
We have an exclusive interview with returning USMNT select, Jonathan Lewis and we talk about his stunning return performance. He hasn't missed a step since he's been away for what feels like forever.
A quick look ahead to the home match with NYCFC this weekend will get you Current.
C38's Dave Wegner joins us in studio this week to discuss what may have possibly but not definitely have been the longest game in MLS history. The longest Fourth of July game anyway.
We then look ahead to the Rapids away match against the Timbers this weekend. It's likely to be a hard fought match against a team that seems to have found their form, and have certainly found their home ground.
Plus, you won't believe all the events and activities Centennial 38 and the Denver Gooners have planned for this weekend in advance of the Rapids showdown with Arsenal on Monday. If you're bored, then you're boring.
We're getting in just under the wire for the annual Tim-dependence day bash. This year we face the New England Revolution, a team that mirrors ours in a lot ways. They started the season off rough and got better by shit canning their manager, just as the Pids have done. We compare and contrast the pair newly minted not-quite-out-of-the-playoff-run teams and make our score predicions.
But first, as always we look backwards to the huge win over LAFC last weekend.
Thanks for joining us and #COYP
This week we get you current on the Rapids disappointing draw in Vancouver last Saturday. How did they squander a two goal lead at BC Place? The biggest positive we took away, Zac MacMath ate some crow after spouting off to MLS about the match.
Next we address a rumor, or rumour, that Newcastle United is actually in talks with Anthony Hudson to replace outgoing manager, Rafael Benitez. We advise the club to barricade the gates and shoot flaming arrows wildly into the night in an attempt to keep Hudson as far away from this beloved and historic beer, er, um, club as possible.
Finally, we look ahead to the ultimate test for the Pids, this Friday night's home match with league dominating LAFC. Thank you as always for listening and #COYP

With the international break we found ourselves getting a little up close and personal for the first half of this cast. We relived the New Mexico United US Open Cup match briefly, but hey, who can remember over a week ago? Next up, we look ahead to Vancouver in Vancouver. The hackley named "Whitecaps" current goalie, one Zach MacMath, has been spouting off to Canadians about wanting to beat the Colorado Rapids more than any other team. Well, we take his sour grapes and mash them into a bitter toilet wine as we revisit some of his flubs that cost us the Supporter's Shield in 2016. Join us, tolerate us, we'll try to get better...GO PIDS!!
The Voice of C38 has taken their ball and gone home. Brendan, Matt, and Brian have rebranded the podcast you already tolerated in small doses and have named it "Current". Thanks for following us to a new platform, we will try to improve all the areas of the old cast that just weren't working and we want your suggestions.
We explain the evolution, or devolution, of our decision and throw in some Rapids and USWNT World Cup chat so you can ward off the shakes for another week.
