Since 2012, the CROpod has been the quintessential Rangers FC podcast about everything besides Rangers--except for the episodes that are actually about Rangers. Hosted and produced by Shane Nicholson, the weekly show sees him joined by David Edgar of Heart and Hand and comedian Todd Van Allen.

David's mic has a click; Todd still brought fascism back to Italy; and Shane is recording from his diner. But it's the 10th anniversary of the CROpod! And the big three are back together! How Shane dislocated his shoulder; how he's shoulder deep in the shit trying to save two different businesses; how Rangers are making us all absolutely furious; a…

Baseball has long been the national pastime of the US, and because one has so much time to kill while it's being played, baseball is pretty damn weird. Colin doesn't get it and Shane is here to do his best in a new CROpod Explains America. Pick off throws, anthem standoffs, fans interfering in the games, and why cheating is okay! Until it's not. Th…
 
A full day of CROpod content comes to end as Shane is joined by H&H regular and Nolecast host Ingram Smith to discuss why we love college football so much. Not missing a chance to score points, Shane reminds Ingram of the 1998 National Championship game as often as possible as both the guys are living vicariously through glory years for their respe…
 
Shane's back for a wide-ranging chat with his sometime drinking-buddy and fellow-American Jon Townsend. A tragic history of their own injuries and experiences throughout the various levels of local football in the USA before an update on Jon's book, It's Just A Ball: Exploring The Complexity Of A Simple Game. In Part 2, the guys talk about the prob…
 
The Canadian has returned! And all he left behind is a newly-oldy-fascist Italy! Todd is back with Shane and David for a full 90 minutes of CROpod action filled with Rangers and coffee and dugs and everything else you expect. Todd tells us about how horrible it was to be on holiday in paradise because it was slightly windy one day, and David has hi…
 
Saturday was good; Tuesday not so much. But Tuesday's gone and Shane and Peter are back for a new edition of Don't Ask Me No Questions! When do we actually get a right-wing? Why do we like to throw young center-halves to the wolves? WTF was Robbie Neilson talking about? And when is UEFA finally going to murder a bunch of supporters outside a ground…
 
Saturday's result has made the days off before Tuesday a little easier to get through, but Scottish referees have an answer to the good feelings: VAR! Shane's still not sure how that would fix the match official's performance we saw for Rangers' win at Hearts. Robbie Neilson thinks the ref could've done more to make Cammy Devlin a better person; Al…
 
Well, that certainly made the weekend seem a lot better, didn't it? Rangers rolled out comfortable winners at Tynecastle Saturday with a 4-nil victory to maybe take some momentum into Anfield for Tuesday's Champions League tie. Antonio Colak keeps banging them in; Alfredo Morelos never lost it; and Ryan Kent nearly equals his goal tally from last s…
 
The international break is over and we've got to get ready for the return of Gio's Rangers at the weekend and the bomb scare of Anfield next week. But Peter is back for his last shift filling in for Todd, and Shane and David are happy to fill him in on the past 30-plus years of culture. The economy is in the bin and the UK is seeking out the techni…
 
American sports teams love to move house—they always have, and it's something almost wholly unique to the country's sports leagues. Colin wants to know why, and Shane is here to once again hurt his brain with the explanation. A little chat about the hurricane that ravaged Florida on Wednesday and why a very smart man whose ideas have been proven ab…
 
Fans hear all the time about the true "stakeholders" in football whether it be from Rangers or the governing bodies of the game. But who are the stakeholders those voices are actually beholden to? The new SPFL television deal shows once again that, when it comes to what supporters want, those in charge of the sport simply do not care beyond paying …
 
First, no one knew how to actually go about removing a president from office. Then, no one knew what to do when the president had left the office. In Episode 9 of the Watergate at 50 series, Shane and David are back to recount the tumultuous first few weeks of the new administration, one failed from the start by the one it had just succeeded. An un…
 
It's episode one of the new Don't Ask Me No Questions series, and Shane is joined for this occasion by CROpod veteran Peter to try to understand why the SPFL keeps doing the things it does. The new TV deal is symptomatic of the larger problems that impact Scottish football and therefore hold back Rangers, but how is it that these same people who've…
 
Despite (or perhaps owing to) the best efforts of its biggest proponents, the proposed contract extension between the SPFL and Sky for broadcast rights continues to look worse. One club chairman came out over the weekend saying analysis of the deal had lacked facts and context—and then flat out lied about the facts of the deal while providing the k…
 
The international break drags on, but on the plus side, there's no Rangers to talk about for Shane, David and Peter on this week's CROpod. At least no football; you can't get through an international break anymore without Rangers coming along to really annoy you about something. Crossover-content as Richard Nixon made some headlines this week, plus…
 
Day Two of the Rangers Directors Providing Absolutely No Tangible Information But Talking A Lot series continues as Stewart Robertson follows John Bennett's world salad starter with a main course. The managing director, in typical fashion, contradicted many things he's said before, continuing the trend of board members telling us how communication …
 
International breaks are terrible. Thankfully, Rangers are committed to making sure we always have something to talk about instead of simply enjoying a couple weeks off. In this episode of Second Hand News, Shane's back to listen to what Brian Laudrup says because it echoes what a lot of people have been saying. Plus, John Bennett wants a half hour…
 
Rangers barely get past Dundee United (yeah, that Dundee United) at home in a 2-1 win and, boy, things just keep going from weakness to weakness with this squad. But Shane's here to at least point out how bad the SPFL is at managing its broadcast rights before getting to how bad this Rangers team has become. Thank god for Antonio Colak's goals and …
 
Ever think a 100 million-year-old coastline couldn't have an impact on global politics? Man, are you wrong! And Shane and Colin are back to explain why in this edition of CROpod Explains America. Find out how an inland sea during dinosaur times shapes American and, quite frankly, all of western politics. What the hell does an ancient seabed have to…
 
Shane's back for another Second Hand News after Rangers' third loss on the bounce following Wednesday's Champions League matchup with Napoli. Problems: we got 'em, we knew we had 'em, we didn't do anything about 'em. And now we get to deal with 'em. It's a shame such a great moment pre-match was undone by months and months of poor planning. SUPPORT…
 
Todd missed training and has been suspended accordingly, so Shane and David are joined by Peter who's back to party like it's 2012. Your usual general chat gives way to Rangers and the Champions League on Wednesday as we close out the first half of the show. Part two comes in with a lovely story about a World War II man finally being laid to rest u…
 
The Special Prosecutor is fitting out his allies for their prison attire. Impeachment is a certainty in the House. And even Republicans in the Senate have let him know that the outcome is a foregone conclusion. In Episode 8 of their Watergate at 50 series, Shane and David are back as the final days of the Nixon presidency draw to an inevitable fini…
 
We decided to hold all of our planned shows until after the weekend, but Shane's back with a Friday edition of Second Hand News as the football world slows down for a few days to remember Queen Elizabeth II. A little more on the troubles with Rangers and just how far back they go, including why Dave King and part of the Three Bears have resurfaced …
 
Rangers have shipped eight goals in two games and have a squad full of players who look like they've given up on the manager; the time has come for drastic changes from the top down. What happened in Amsterdam was no different than what happened at the weekend; it can't stop with Gio; where's the captain in all of this; plus, some US Open Cup stuff…
 
It was a bad weekend, to put it mildly, as a lot of the cracks that Rangers have been papering over were exposed. Thankfully, Shane and Todd found a perfectly reasonable man like themselves to discuss that horror show in CROpod original Peter. What's going on off the park at Ibrox these days; how it translated to that showing on the park; how does …
 
Shane's back for a quick Sunday spot after a terrible Saturday on the park. Sometimes it takes a day that bad to finally bring into focus for many the problems at Rangers. At least we know how to fix this kind of thing. SUPPORT THE CROpod! Just visit https://www.buymeacoffee.com/ofvoid You can make a one-off contribution now or click the "Membershi…
 
Shane's back to close out the week ahead of Saturday's Old Firm derby with another Second Hand News. More on Rangers' messaging and media briefing that was discussed on Monday as Alfredo Morelos returns to the squad and how it fits into the larger club narrative. Plus, Ross Wilson and Stewart Robertson's words mean nothing; and preparing for the fi…
 
Shane and his ex-pat buddy Colin are back for more CROpod Explains America, and they're tackling a $1.7 trillion (yep, trillion) part of the economy: the student loan system. Some quick Rangers deadline day chat before how paying for university even begins to work in the US. Colin can relate for a while, then Shane breaks his head with the tale of …
 
The full panel is back for a pre-deadline day/pre-derby day edition of the CROpod! Shane, David and Todd are ready for whatever Gio and Rangers have for them with their yellow neckties dry cleaned and pressed and their purple bedroom accouterments on hand. A sudden change of heart when it comes to VAR; a decade of Pjanic Watch continues; please sig…
 
Shane is back for another quick round of Second Hand News as the transfer deadline looms. Seeing as we have one fit striker and what should be piles of cash per the board's own notes, it's disappointing some are spending time worrying about what's being said in the press. Plus, the whole briefing strategy lately has been a bit short-sighted and mis…
 
Rangers returned to North America in 1976 for the first time in more than two decades, embarking on a five-stop tour beginning in the Pacific Northwest. As the USA geared up for its bicentennial and Gerald Ford was on the campaign trail in Portland, Oregon, Rangers rode into town (literally on the day) to take on the Timbers on 23 May. In the third…
 
It's time for Shane and Todd to wither away slowly on their Desert Island yet again, but this go round someone has been careless enough to drop a case full of their favorite Action Flicks overboard and it's washed ashore along with a Blue Ray player and a nice big television. The guys run down their top five guns and explosions and summer blockbust…
 
More new CROpod material has finally arrived as Shane and Scotch ex-pat Colin are here to give their best effort at explaining America, and why not start with an attempt at one of the reasons our system of government is the way it is: there are way too many elections. Did you know Shane has to vote for his coroner? It's true! Or that in some years …
 
Despite all of his best and most illegal efforts, Richard Nixon's presidency is crumbling around him. And now, it's a matter for the US Congress to decide whether he's still fit for the office. In Episode 7 of their Watergate at 50 series, Shane and David are here to explain just what impeachment is, because people in 1974 didn't really know. Why h…
 
Shane and Todd will be back with some more Desert Island tomfoolery before next week's Champions League playoff tie, but, unlike our Dutch opponents, you might need something to get through an away day at the weekend (THANKS SFA!). So here's the first episode of the Desert Island series, and it's the absolute classic pub version: the five albums yo…
 
Shane, David and Todd are back in business following Rangers' draw on Tuesday night with PSV. Some talk about the football; how media rooms work; David offends as many social groups as possible before Shane throws it to break to save whatever listeners we have left; Todd has Canadian weirdoes of his own to contend with; don't do drugs; a few of you…
 
Shane's back for a quick look at some news items from the past week in the CROpod's Second Hand News. Aberdeen shed some more light on a SPFL broadcasting plan and no one seems to know why we're doing this right now; Graham Spiers continues to oddly pick the wrong fights; Bill Leckie continues to have a job in 2022 somehow; and the Souness thing fr…
 
The Watergate story would never have been told without the relentless work of a number of journalists, not just Woodward and Bernstein. To that end, Shane and David are back in Episode 6 of their Watergate at 50 series to talk about the people left out of the history as told in popular culture. In this show, the guys introduce you to the city edito…
 
Shane and David had to get together on a Friday because the SPFL continues to shoot itself in the dick when it comes to broadcasting contracts. The pair lay out what this new deal would actually mean; how it stacks up to comparable leagues (very poorly); and what should actually happen in negotiations that don't need to be finalised for nearly anot…
 
The week in CROpod is much better as Rangers overturn another Belgian pretender and Malik Tillman has already made his case for a permanent display in the new Edmiston House. Shane, David and Todd talk about the fun that is football when football is fun along with some love for John Lundstram continuing to not give one single shit about your feelin…
 
Shane and Todd are back and invariably doomed to death either slowly on their Desert Island or perhaps in an American prison to be named. But at least they have some final meals to look forward to! The guys break down the three-squares on the menu before meeting their ultimate fate; tell you about some famous last meals in recent memory; and, of co…
 
The long-awaited follow-up episode in Shane's Rangers From Sea to Shining Sea series is finally here, as he takes a look at a three-time opponent during the Struth tours, the Fall River Marksmen. Did we actually play them in Fall River? Did we play them to help raise money after the city caught on fire (again)? Did the Marksmen survive a trip to Ce…
 
We've joked about it before but it does appear Rangers are deadset on introducing a whole new generation to what the mid-90s felt like. Thankfully, Shane, David and Todd have all already lived it and know how to prepare. Plus, comedians who aren't funny; David thinks he is funny; nutjobs take a loss in Kansas; and more! Read a special thank you not…
 
Shane is down with a bit of an ear problem so the latest Watergate at 50 installment has been pushed back a couple of days, but we've gone into the vault for something you may have missed: from May of 2021, it's the third edition of his and Todd's Desert Island series as the North American contingent give you their top One-Hit Wonders! The guys loo…
 
Shane and David are only about halfway home in their Watergate at 50 series, and if you've missed anything, now is your chance to get caught all the way up with the first five episodes. Meet Dick Nixon and all the other dicks along for this ride; learn about the break-in which wasn't the first one but was the worst one; the Senate committee hearing…
 
The full panel is back in action as Shane, David and Todd work to get in shape for the upcoming league campaign. Actual talk about football for the first bit of the show; a mass shooting down the street; absolutely awful people masquerading as public servants; maybe don't lean into the stereotype of being a bunch of junkies; and more! Read a specia…
 
Shane and David are back for the fifth installment of the Watergate at 50 series, as the wheels begin to come off the presidency of Richard Nixon while a bowtie-cladded Harvard lawyer drills closer to the Oval Office before being spectacularly dispatched. This week, we meet the Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, a man Nixon couldn't have conjured up…
