Always a fun listen

Will’s emotions don’t run quite as low and high after each game now that we’re champs, but his fan enthusiasm is still a welcome touch of colour to what can otherwise be bland Raptors analysis found elsewhere. Can’t miss the slander casts. And the call in show is surprisingly good (except for one returning caller who takes up 10 minutes every episode). Josh is the best on the pod besides Will, really articulate and thoughtful.

The petty pod on the Clippers loss to the Nuggets was just so, so damn satisfying.

Yes!

Five stars for petty clippers post game! William Lou, I thought I loved you before. You have now become a legend. Statue of William Lou beside Lowry’s statue! Just make a massive base on the statue to support Will’s massive beautiful head.

Thank you ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

To call this the best raptors podcast ... is an understatement

Let me just start off by saying this, I never EVER rate pods. I don’t care enough to. Let the real fans do this. But I guess I’m a real fan of this pod bc I found myself pausing what my boy is saying just so I could write this.

Also, Apple makes it mad tough to rate. Like I had to put in work to find this page but I wanted to bc this man deserves the 5*

Why? It’s simple. He’s the best raps analyst out there. When we win, everywhere is amazing to go and consume content bc everyone is jerking raps off and jerking off nick “big brain COTY” nurse, but when we’re losing, all I see is “is this the old raps workout Kawhi???1??”

That’s where this pod comes in clutch. This man is level headed. He’s always there to tell you (accurately) how Toronto did. When we did bad, he’ll explain to us the silver linings. And those times where I wanna kms as a raps fan, because we did awful, he explains to me life is worth living lmao. And that’s a good pod if you ask me. Honestly if you a raps fan, peep it and don’t even think twice.

Editing this post at 5am on a Thursday morning following game 6 win against the Celtics: LOU IS THE MAN! Listening to this pod is incredible after a loss to calm you down, but OH MAN after a win, you can’t go anywhere but a reaction pod from my guy. Keep it up man you rock
