Podcast makes me feel connected to other Toronto Raptors fans

I’m a software engineer in Tampa Florida. I previously lived in Toronto 1992-2002 before moving down here. I listen on podcast, but the fact that my father also listens to this show on YouTube; shows the quality and authenticity of the show covering the Raptors. It’s a must listen for Raptors fans

Amazing podcast for Raptor’s content

I listen to the podcast every day and it’s never boring. Will and Alex keep the show fun while going in depth on the Raptors. Love the post game reaction analysis from Will and the great guest interviews.
