Banter Pod: Raptors Summer Scrimmages, Nick Nurse in Hungary, the Birth of Panda Pod
August 05 2022
Welcome to another banter pod! Will Lou and Alex Wong chat about their first bank account, riding in Alex’s 2001 Honda Civic, chicken balls, chicken feet, durian, and the idea of a “panda pod” before diving into this week’s Raptors news (50:14) including the team’s training camp and pre-season schedule, end of roster moves, the Rico Hines runs, Nick Nurse’s expectations for this coming season, whether Toronto can finish as a top-two seed, Bruno to Boston, Raptors statues outside of Scotiabank Arena, and KD sitting down with Joe Tsai. Later, Will and Alex go through listener emails (1:54:11) from Jackson Hole, Wyoming to Bologna, Italy and discuss the origin story of “hello and welcome” and the Costco hot dog before they wrap up (2:49:25) by putting every Raptor player into their own fandom tier.The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliates.
