For Kicks Podcast, Episode 13: Clare Rustad weighs in on Rio

If you watched CBC or TSN’s broadcasts of the CANWNT games during the Olympics, you’re already familiar with Clare Rustad’s “tough love” commentary on the team. What you may not already know, however, is that Clare is a former Olympian herself. From 2000 to 2008 Clare played the midfield in 45 appearances with the Canadian national team, including the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Oh. And she’s a doctor. Which makes her all the more amazing for taking time to talk to us on the podcast.

Up until now, we haven’t delved too deep into the semi-final match against Germany and bronze medal match against Brazil because we thought “Who better than Clare Rustad to weigh in on those games?” And that’s exactly what she does in this latest episode. Clare shares tons of insight on Rio and Canada’s bronze medal win, thoughts on the future of the team and even takes some listener questions. She’s one of our favourite people so if you want to hear more from her, be sure to check out her own podcast, The Footy Experiment, and look for more of her analysis of the beautiful game on CBC and TSN in the future.

At the end of the show, we chat about the possibility of future NWSL expansion and our beloved Houston Dash.

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 12: CANWNT and USWNT at the Rio Olympics, a chat with RJ Allen of Backline Soccer

Canada has reached the podium for the second Olympics in a row and will leave Rio with a hard-fought bronze medal! From the bottom of our little Canada-soccer-loving hearts, we could not possibly be more proud. In our next podcast we’ll be getting into the nitty gritty of Canada’s final days in the tournament, but until then…

In our latest episode, we talk to RJ Allen, editor-in-chief at Backline Soccer, co-host of the Scouting Report podcast and writer for Sounder At Heart. We discuss our thoughts about the US’s early exit from the Rio Olympic tournament, what we expect the impact on the NWSL and negotiations with USSF to be, and, of course, Canada’s bronze medal win.

We wrap things up with a quick look at the U-15 Championship in Florida, where Canada went home with silver.
