hi mr. platapus ,

Great content and insight

I just discovered this podcast and it has quickly become one of my favourites. The addition of Ricky Romero (he’s AWESOME) on top of Drew and Kaitlin who are equally AWESOME makes this must listen. Thanks for the content and insight. Your making my Blue Jays season experience just that much better

Rah rah Jays!

I want to love this podcast because all the hosts seem very likeable and I root for the Jays. But it just feels like pub chitchat between fans of the club. Rarely do they disagree with each other and they spend a lot of time saying how great the Blue Jays are and how stupid fans are who say different.
