The internet's first -- and inarguably best -- Colorado Rockies podcast. Ever. In the history of humanity.
Episode 220 | December 23, 2022: Holiday Commercial Roast 2022
We haven't recorded an episode of your favorite neighborhood Colorado Rockies podcast because the Colorado Rockies are an incredibly boring, failure-ridden, non-aspirational franchise with no plan to get better in any measurable context, so...what were we going to talk about?
THE GOOD NEWS IS that holiday commercials are somehow even worse than Colorado's baseball team! And we are finally back to discuss some of the worst among them for 2022. Whether you've been enraged by horrible wealthy people giving each other luxury cars for the holidays, moved to tears by irrationally emotional commercials for a grocery store chain, or unable to decipher what Jennifer Coolidge is saying in her "I couldn't possibly have tried less" Old Navy joint, we've got you covered.
It's the 2022 Holiday Commercial Roast edition of the PDP! And we're the Antonellis!
Episode 219 | June 24, 2022: Fleeting Glimpses of Positivity
Well...the Rockies started the season 15-10 and have gone 15-30 since, so they're pretty bad. On this week's episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast, we talk about some baseball things and why this team is so putrid and why there (Sadly) isn't a lot of promise in the immediate future to keep people involved or interested.
But hey, the Avs are in the Stanley Cup Final, and 80% of your #AskPDP questions were Avs-related in some form. So that's cool!
All that and more is on the latest edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Go Avs go!
Episode 218 | May 18, 2021: If You're Going To Be Bad, At Least Be Interesting
Over a month into the 2022 Major League Baseball season, the Colorado Rockies look like what most of us expected: sadly mediocre. Unfortunately, they're also not very interesting, which sucks. With Kris Bryant out, the Rockies' offense has slumped to extremely boring status, and Colorado's pitching staff has not held out, to say the least. What does it mean when Bryant makes his return as soon as next week?
Plus, we discuss how little is coming through the Rockies' prospect pipeline, so...really not much in this episode is too optimistic or exciting!
It's the 218th edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Spin it in a centrifuge and inject it into your injured limbs!
Episode 217 | April 27, 2022: The Good, the Bad, and the Weird Baseballs
Nearing the end of April, it's time for an actual baseball-talkin' edition of the old PDP! On this week's (month's?) episode of the show, we discuss the 10-7 start of your, my, and our Colorado Rockies. What's good about it? What's concerning about it? What's the likelihood they'll ever climb above fourth place again? Kris Bryant hasn't hit a dinger, and Kyle Freeland keeps getting rocked. On the other hand, Connor Joe and Chad Kuhl should be Hall of Famers in no time. We discuss.
Plus, Major League Baseball continues to make everyone mad with its actual baseballs. What's the situation this year? We break it down.
All that and more is on this edition of the PDP! Juice it or deaden it depending on your offensive needs!
Episode 216 | April 7, 2022: Weird But Fun (Hopefully)
The 2022 Major League Baseball season is here! In this year's season preview edition, we take a look at the Colorado Rockies and how, though we've given up on them ever being a serious baseball franchise, they could once again be entertaining at the very least. From the addition of Kris Bryant to continued growth of players like Ryan McMahon, Brendan Rodgers, and more, the 2022 Rockies may at least be able to smack the ball around a bit. That'll be cool. Hopefully.
Plus, we take your #AskPDP queries on everything from the best Food Network personalities to the idea of a salary floor in MLB.
All that and more is here on the 2022 season preview edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. Gulp it down in LoDo on Opening Day!
Episode 215 | March 23, 2022: Baseball Is Back; The Malaise Has Returned
The lockout is over, and the MLB season is almost here! On the very first edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast in 2022, we discuss the Rockies continuing to be the weirdest franchise in baseball by signing Kris Bryant to a monster deal for some reason! The signing is fun! It's also bizarre. KB will smack some monster dongs in Coors Field. That's fun! The Rockies also let Jon Gray and Trevor Story walk for nothing and did very little to improve their pitching staff. That's not. So it'll be a weird year!
We discuss the change in mental approach to the Rockies as your favorite team and what these new signings mean about the future for them and for you.
All that and more are on the first 2022 edition of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast! Smack it into orbit!

Such a great podcast. You guys are awesome
Used to be better
We get it. You don’t like how the Rockies are run. You seem to hate the team on a deep level. Why don’t you change the format of your show to general baseball format and make yourselves happier?
Thank goodness that the Orange Man Bad lost so at least we don’t have to listen to those screeds anymore. I get it, you’re a progressive. What does that have to do with baseball?
