Our current episode | The System is Down | Nov. 23, 2021

The NWSL went from the high of the NWSL Championship in Louisville on Saturday to the all-too-familiar low of yet another investigative report concerning the misconduct of a head coach. Claire Watkins is here to process the news around Rory Dames following Monday’s Washington Post report, plus touch on the final we just attended this weekend between the Red Stars and Washington Spirit.

Last time on Full Time | NWSL Semis, A New USWNT and A Shared Brain Cell | Nov. 12, 2021

Meg’s in Portland, Steph’s at home, and we’re back to discuss the NWSL semifinals, the USWNT roster and some of the latest news around the league — plus, some thoughts on Red (Taylor’s Version) because it’s currently on repeat when we’re not recording podcasts.
