The Two Cents Show – Ep. 04 with Duane Watson

We had the absolute pleasure of chatting with producer, director, writer, podcaster, analyst, storyteller, and dare we say pioneer of media basketball in Canada. The one and only Duane Watson!!! Over the course of our conversation, we had a chance to get to know Duane a lot more through basketball of course, for instance, we talked about his favourite team growing up, which player he most identifies with, his most prized basketball possession and more.

We then took Duane on a trip down memory lane to revisit his basketball journey, how he got to write for Hoop and SLAM, his first interviews with Canadian NBA players, his work with Raptors. Heck, we even talked about Duane being a road manager for a hip-hop band on a tour!

On the third section of the show we talked about Duane’s most recent projects, including Crown League and ‘Nique (which btw, you should subscribe right now). We then finished off our chat with a not-so-fast lightning round where we got Duane to pick between some touch choices.

We say this time and time again but really, trust us, this is an episode that you don’t want to miss!

The Two Cents Show – Ep. 02 with J.E. Skeets from No Dunks!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Clipper bros and Beantown boys, you’re in for a treat this week. On the second episode of the Dropping Dimes’ Two Cents Show, we had the chance to talk with one and only, J.E. Skeets from the No Dunks podcast on The Athletic!
On the first section of the show, we got to know Skeets a bit more from a basketball perspective, his favourite shoes, his first jersey, etc. We then talked about Canada Basketball and the chances of Team Canada making it to the Olympics and the current class of Canadians in the NBA. We also asked Skeets some questions about his Toronto Raptors and played a little game called “Why can’t we be friends”.
Close to the end of the show, we followed up with Skeets on the No Dunks Squad episode and asked him if he had the chance to have a new NBA franchise in Vancouver what would he name the team, what the uniform might look like, what concession stand item would be sold in the arena and who would be the celebrity ambassador.
Trust us, you definitely do not want to miss out on this episode!

Ep 54 – What the Knicks?

Rod and Evans welcome Raf back from his international adventure. The guys discuss the surprising news of Kenny Atkinson abruptly leaving the Nets, what might be behind that decision and is this Kyrie’s doing? The boys also chat about the Bucks, Raptors, and Lakers punching their ticket into the playoffs, Joakim Noah and Dion Waiters moving to Los Angeles, and just what in the world are the Knicks doing?!?! The boys also give a big shoutout to the important women in their lives.

Ep. 30 – Raptors Extravaganza with The Bryan Brothers

For our 30th episode, we decided to bring two special guests, Adrian and Jay Bryan from The Bryan Brothers podcast! Adrian and Jay joined Rod and Evans on a Raptors Extravaganza! The guys discussed all the major events from the Raptors season that led to the Championship. Check in for what will be an instant classic for all things Raptors, Toronto, and to to learn more on our affection for Cactus Club.

Ep. 26 – We the 49th Parallel!

Oooooo Canada!!! The Toronto Raptors shocked the NBA world and are in the NBA Finals! On this episode, Rod and Evans are joined by coach Clay and coach Alfred from HD Training and by our friend, Remo to talk about the All-NBA teams, were the selections fair or were there any snubs? And, of course, we discuss game 6 of the Bucks-Raptors series what the finals match-ups might look like and we also discuss…if Vancouver gets an NBA team are the Raptors still Canada’s team?

What do you guys think, should coach Clay wear a Raptors jersey if Toronto wins it all?

Ep. 03 – KaWHY?!?! Curses and Red Bull

After a long saga surrounded by mystery but mostly silence from Kawhi Leonard, we finally got some resolution in the form of the trade of the off-season.  What does this mean for the Raptors, was it the right move to send Demar to the Spurs?

We also talk about the WNBA All-Star Game, Carmelo Anthony going to the Rockets, and we make case to bring Red Bull on board as our sponsor (spoiler alert: our pitch doesn’t end well).
