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 problems that US Soccer is suddenly having to face after years of ignoring them, namely the building of a culture that has tolerated and even encouraged the grooming and sexual abuse of young athletes. And we take a couple of your questions to finish it out.
