The Call Up

The Call Up: MLS, USMNT legend Tim Howard embraces life as a carpool dad

The Call Up - 2019 - episode 18

Listen to the latest episode:

On the 2019 season finale, the ladies discuss Irish exits and a wedding foul. Jill & Susannah also weigh in on the Sacha Kljestan & Michael Bradley free agent signings, and are then joined by US goalkeeping legend Tim Howard. After 22 years as a pro, Howard shares what is keeping him busier than ever, talks about embracing life as a “carpool dad” and addresses the rumors that he'll become GM of the team he part-owns, Memphis 901 FC. He also pulls back the curtain on his scariest moment with Sir Alex Ferguson and explains why he never took on the British accent in the way some of his compatriots did.
