Raptors Reaction Podcast

Samson Folk delivers the craft beer, the artisan chocolate, the connoisseur’s choice of Raptors content. He seamlessly weaves in technical analysis, hilarious anecdotes, and tie-ins to Raptors history and happenings around the league with a verve and style that is without compare.
