Extratime: Ike Opara on podcasting, MNUFC + DaMarcus Beasley's last dance

Listen to the latest episode:

In this special Labor Day episode, Andrew Wiebe and David Gass bring you interviews with four fascinating (but wildly different) North American soccer personalities. First up, Ike Opara, who arrived in Minnesota this offseason to help turn the Loons’ fortunes around. In his spare time, he grills opponents, friends and follow professional players on the BS Podcast.

Also in the episode … DaMarcus Beasley on his final season, why he doesn’t get showered in gifts like Landon Donovan and the embarrassing accessory his running mate refused to part with back in the day. Plus, Earthquakes midfielder and US national team prospect Jackson Yueill sits down with David in Los Angeles, and Austin da Luz talks life in the second division as as he prepares to hang up his boots.
