June 24: What comes next for Canada Basketball
June 24 2019
Brian Burke of the NHL on Sportsnet joins Jeff Blair and Richard Deitsch in-studio to put a bow on the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, and discuss the moves to come leading up to free agency (3:20); then with the New York Mets in the news for all the wrong reasons, SNY's John Harper hops on the show to share his thoughts on the team and how they handled yesterday's clubhouse incident (29:55). Former NBA executive Billy King talks about what goes into the pitches to recruit NBA free agents, and offers his opinion on this year's free agent class (47:28). Later in the hour, the GM of Canada Basketball's Senior Men's team, Rowan Barrett, talks about the decision to hire Nick Nurse as the team's head coach, and also spoke about his emotions on draft night seeing his son RJ drafted 3rd overall to the New York Knicks (1:13:41). The Blue Jays took two of three against the Red Sox, but all anyone wants to discuss is Marcus Stroman vs. Dennis Eckersley! Blue Jays play by play voice Ben Wagner weighs-in on that and previews tonight's series against the Yankees (1:34:10). To end off the show, we go "Inside the Green Room" with Harrison Sanford, who hosts the podcast alongside Raptors sharpshooter (and upcoming free agent) Danny Green. Where could he be headed come July 1st? Could he be back in Toronto?

June 20: Will baseball be returning to Montreal?
June 20 2019
Bob McCown and Richard Deitsch are with you for all three hours today! Jon Paul Morosi is first up and discusses the Tampa Bay Rays potentially being shared with the city of Montreal; is this a viable solution (6:22)? Later in the hour, ESPN's Kevin Seifert explains why technology has put officials into a tough spot to make the right calls throughout various sports (32:46). Just how busy is the NHL Draft and free agency for an NHL agent? Bob and Richard ask one of the best in the business: Don Meehan of Newport Sports. Meehan also talks about the new long-term deals inked by clients Jeff Skinner and Erik Karlsson who avoided unrestricted free agency (46:18); then, NBC Sports' Tom Haberstroh looks ahead to tonight's NBA draft: are NBA teams getting worse at assessing the early talent in the draft? The Toronto Raptors just won the championship without a single lottery pick after all (1:13:42). In the final hour, national NBA reporter Tim Bontemps shares his thoughts on free agency and a few breaking trades before tonight's draft (1:34:36); and Chris Johnston of the NHL on Sportsnet is in Vancouver for tomorrow's NHL draft - can we expect many trades on the draft floor (2:01:28)?
