Cut.  Traded.  Fired.  Retired.

Get ready for entertainment and inspiration with the Cut Traded Fired Retired Podcast!

We follow them on social media. We pay money to watch them play or coach. We check headlines for breaking news and rumors about them.

Professional athletes and coaches are the best at what they do. They are also people. People with emotions, self-doubt, insecurities, family obligations and setbacks. In every professional sport, a player or coach is inevitably cut, traded, fired, and/or retires.

Susie Wargin sits down with some of the biggest names in Denver sports. Hall of Famers, Ring of Famers, Super Bowl winners (and losers) and many who have reinvented themselves in retirement. The results are conversations full of never-before-heard stories as well as inspiration on how to keep moving forward.
