Reading the StarsThe All-Stars have descended upon Portland and ExtraTime Radio was on the ground to talk to the protagonists: What does DeAndre Yedlin's future hold? Will Diego Valeri retire a Timber? And Michael Bradley discusses whether MLS should re-think the international friendly strategy.
But it's not just today's big names who are in Portland. Several of the future All-Stars will play in Monday's inaugural Homegrown match and we sat down with three of them for a wide-ranging intimate conversation: Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew) and Shane O'Neill (Colorado Rapids).

After a month of consuming the 2014 World Cup, you probably think you know everything there is to know about it. Well, James Montague will make you think again with "Thirty-One Nil" featuring stories you likely never heard about in the lead-up to Brazil. We spoke to Montague about his adventures around the world and if you haven't yet ordered the book, you'll likely be tempted to after listening to our special Book Club edition.
