    This week, one of our most recent signings, midfielder Jürgen Damm, joins us and tries not to feel the pressure from being on the President's podcast. Since Darren is the only one of us down in Orlando right now, he gives us an update on what it has been like in the bubble and what the players are doing. Jürgen tells us about himself, describes his playing style, and breaks down his favorite social media platform since he is already a hit with our fans. Matt gets super excited and hopes to have found a new doubles partner when he finds out Jürgen not only plays tennis, but is really good. And from the perspective of a seasoned Liga MX player, Jürgen reveals his thoughts on MLS vs Liga MX. Matt may have won $20 but somehow I think Darren is happier just to have Atlanta United themed "scratchers."

    #14 Definitely Not Luck - Spike’d Up - July 2, 2020

    Head Coach Frank de Boer joins us on Spike’d Up this week and shows more of his personality than you typically get to see. We learn what games Frank was playing with his family while in quarantine, his take on Tiger King, and we review one of Frank’s most memorable assists; was it skill or was it luck? Frank also gives us an update of the upcoming tournament and how the team is looking.

    #13 You Were More Talented Than David Beckham - June 25, 2020

    Coming up in England's Youth National Team with David Beckham, Atlanta United’s Director of Academy Tony Annan knows a little something about soccer and joins us this week to break down the importance of a successful academy system. As the club’s 6th (maybe 7th) employee, he has plenty of stories from early in the club’s history and shares a few with us today. He also gives us an update on what he has been doing since quarantine and how the academy teams have been coped with the changes. Tony also unveils, for the first time, that he is publishing two new children's books!

    Howard Webb, Manager of Video Assistant Referee Operations for MLS's Professional Referee Organization, joins us on this week's podcast as we go into a deep dive on VAR, how successful it's been in MLS versus other leagues around the world. We talk with him about some of his favorite memories from his career, which call was his biggest regret, and Matt finds out how often Darren and Carlos call Howard after our matches.

    #11 Say Cheese! Carlos Bocanegra Joins Us! - Spike'd Up - June 11, 2020

    Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra joins us this week on Spike'd Up and gives us an update on the team's morale and fitness level after returning to full team training. Darren puts the pressure on Carlos for a favorable draw in the MLS is Back Tournament. We bet Carlos to say a secret word during the tournament draw, money gets donated to Atlanta Community Food Bank and then we revisit his epic failure trying to break a glass window at the training ground in 2016.

JoshCClark ,

Thank You for the great content, BUT...

I’m genuinely thankful for all the content my great club (ATLUTD) provides. This podcast is no exception. Fantastic stuff!!! BUT...

You just yanked the most recent episode before I got a chance to listen, bc it got a negative response from many of our ATLUTD “supporters”, on social media. They didn’t like that you had an employee of Barstool Sports on your show, bc the president of Barstool interviewed the 45th POTUS. Please re-read the previous sentence, and consider how delusional that stance is.

Your sane supporters understand that just bc you have someone on your show doesn’t mean you condone every decision they, their company, or that company’s boss make. We just appreciate the content. And even though we aren’t as boisterous or relentless in our public support of your content, as the other “supporters” are in their hate, doesn’t mean we don’t exist. Please consider us from time to time too. Unlike the others, our support is unconditional.

Ultimately you have to do what’s best for the club. I understand that, and will support ATLUTD no matter what. The podcast still has my 5 ⭐️ rating, but just know this... The more you give in to that faction of our clubs supporters, and cower to their demands, the more they will take. It will never be enough for them. Please stop rewarding their childish behavior. What you permit, you promote.

Lastly, I very much appreciate the clubs strong stance on Inclusion & Equality. It makes me even more proud to be a supporter of our great club. So in the spirit of “inclusion”, I ask that you please consider ALL of your supporters before pulling content that some may disagree with or publicly criticize. You can support all the admirable social justice & human rights efforts, and still have a backbone.
Thanks, and keep cranking out great content!
