Grant interviews his old friend and former work teammate Kate Abdo of CBS Sports (at 24:08) about how CBS is approaching its UEFA Champions League coverage; how she's dealing with working from London despite living in Los Angeles; what she has learned about studio pundits Roberto Martínez, Jamie Carragher, Alex Scott and Micah Richards; how she learned languages well enough to do simultaneous interview interpretation in Spanish, German and French (and soon Italian); and how she ended up having a global wanderlust despite growing up in a family that rarely traveled from Manchester, England.
Before that, Grant and Chris Wittyngham discuss Grant's new podcast series American Prodigy: The Freddy Adu Story from Blue Wire Podcasts and break down what they learned from the USMNT's friendlies against Wales and Panama.
