For the very first CurrentCast — our new weekly podcast — we interviewed San Antonio FC Head Coach Darren Powell
, a man who holds San Antonio's soccer future in his hands (but no pressure, right?).

Powell, originally from Nottingham, England, previously directed youth development for the Major League Soccer side Orlando City SC
, and is the winningest coach in Elon University history. He joined San Antonio FC
in January, before the club even had a name.
Powell spoke with the Current
about putting together a team on short notice, what the term "Dorcelona" means for the club's strategy, and the future of soccer in San Antonio. Have a listen below, or download the podcast from the Current's SoundCloud page
Powell and his players will square off against Swope Park Rangers on Saturday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Toyota Field for the club's home opener. Tickets are available here
