This week's Beeman's Repubic features an interview with Sacramento Republic rookie midfielder and former Cal Poly Mustang, Matt LaGrassa. LaGrassa, who is making his first ever appearance on the show, talks about his time at Cal Poly, transitioning from college to the pros, and how awesome it is to share a training ground with Didier Drogba.

The show then turns the focus directly to Drogba's training stay in Sacramento, with some discussion about what it means for both Sacramento and the Republic. Spoiler: not a whole lot of cons involved with such a high profile player staying to train with the city's pro team.

Finally, the focus turns toward this Sunday and the final currently scheduled Republic friendly of the preseason against UC Davis on the campus of Consumnes River College.

Beeman's Republic is the current official podcast of Indomitable City Soccer. It is hosted by ICS Managing Editor Josh Beeman and covers Sacramento Republic FC and soccer in and around Sacramento.
