We’ve said it before but this time is 100% real, this episode is an ABSOLUTE CLASSIC. We were joined by two very special guests, Christina Edgar and Hal Oreck, both former Vancouver Grizzlies employees. Christina and Hal shared a ton of stories with us! Who was their favourite player in the Grizzlies, the behind the scenes at games, meeting other NBA superstars, getting bumped in the head (by accident) by Shawn Bradley and more! Trust us, this episode is an instant classic.
Over the weekend we had the absolute honour to attend Night Hoops’ Skills Competition and Social Night where we got a chance to learn more about this fantastic organization and everything the Night Hoops crew does to positively impact the youth in Metro Vancouver through basketball. Check out all the interviews we gathered during this fun event with Night Hoops Business Development Manager, Chad Cowles, Night Hoops Board Member, Jade Christie, local hoops legend, Clay Crellin, and Night Hoops Program coordinator Curtis Allembi.
On this very special episode of Dropping Dimes, we are joined by award winning, Vancouverite film-maker and the director, writer, producer and co-star of Finding Big Country, Kay Jayme! We had a great time with Kat, we asked her more details about her passion for basketball, her favourite shoe growing up, favourite Grizzlies player, her favourite WNBA player and more.
We also asked Kat about her motivation behind Finding Big Country, her introduction at the Vancouver Film Festival, and we even made a case for Kat to be part of the organization once the Grizzlies come back to Vancouver!
Definitely a classic episode that you won’t want to miss!

Here’s the thing about doing a podcast. It is awesome! But it’s not as easy as it migh look (sound?) Regardless, Raf and I are having a blast with this project and we hope you guys are having as much as we are!
On this week’s episode we talk about some of the exciting basketball events that are coming to Vancouver next week in preparation for the NBA’s pre-season. One of them, the premiere of “Finding Big Country“! An amazing story from the perspective of a superfan of the Vancouver Grizzlies and her quest to find her childhood hero, Bryant “Big Country” Reeves.
We also end up talking about And 1, Nike’s latest campaign, and Rod goes on a rant on how Foot Locker Canada is not living up to expectation. Enjoy!
