D.C. United opens Audi Field against the Vancouver Whitecaps

It’s finally here!

It is finally here! D.C. United opens Audi Field this weekend, and Jason and Adam are here and excited! (Ben is also excited, but he’s on a beach this week.) But before we get to Audi Field, we have to talk about D.C. United’s comeback draw against the LA Galaxy, and we wonder if this could be a turning point in the team’s season.

In the second segment, we welcome on Emily Olsen of Pro Soccer USA to talk about all things Audi Field! We discuss the weeklong hoopla, the opening events, and what this means for the team’s future. In a rare post-guest third segment, Jason and Adam break down the game at Audi Field against the Vancouver Whitecaps, including what the defense needs to do against Kei Kamara and Alphonso Davies, and how to attack when they’re going to have the bulk of possession. Give it a listen!

With your support, we’ve made two big upgrades! The first is that we are producing chapter marks for the segments now, and those should appear directly in your podcast app (or on SoundCloud, if you listen there). The second is that there are now audio transcriptions of the podcast for those who want or need them! They are available on our Internet Archive page only, so you’ll need to go over there to find them; they’re produced by speech recognition software, so they’re not 100% accurate, but they look readable. These upgrades are only possible because of the support we get on Patreon, so if you appreciate these upgrades, consider pitching in.
